Driving to work one day whilst listening to the Knitmore Girls, The Otter, went all possessed and started to play, I kid you not, "Rockin Around the Christmas Tree".  Now at this certain point in the road, I am use to the radio going all willy nilly & wonked out, too many frequencies or something, I don't know.  But CHRISTMAS music?  It's frakkin May.  Seriously?  What station is playing Christmas music in May that I would have picked up?  (and no that song is not on my Otter, as I am not a fan of it, I blame the 8th grade)
So that is my story.

Short term goal: to take an online course to be a legal secretary

Long term goal: to get a job at a law firm & possibly become a paralegal

Short term goal: save money so that I can do this next year (it's about $1000) if there's yarn that I want, put the money aside into my "college fund" account, yarn will always be there, maybe not the color I want, but that's what birthdays & Christmas is for right?

Long term goal: continue to save money bc well it's the smart thing to do.  (once school is settled, save a little for a 'fun fund' too)

So, that's that.  It'll be hard.  I sometimes like to get all spendy whe I shouldn't.  Which is why I tend to avoid the malls. 


I need to redo my heel toe.  It's too pointy.  Methinks a 3 needle bind off might be best in this situation.

It's a bird...It's a plane....

<---- heel

It's a two toed sock! 

<---- toe

I can't wait till it's finish them. 

This may be my new favorite way to knit socks.  Although I do still love a good ol heel flap. 
Maybe I'll just use this method for knee high socks.

I wish I was a duck

It's the third day of rain.  Which, to be honest, I don't really mind.  I do enjoy the rain a bit more in the summer, I'm already barefoot most of the time so it makes puddle jumping that much easier.  I actually haven't puddle jumped in a while.  I'll have to fix that, it's fun. 

I finished the toe heel, teel? toel?  and am now opening up the part where I had the waste yarn.   I didn't close up the toel because, honestly, I'm not sure I knit the foot long enough.  We shall see!

Well, what do we have here...

It's a sock.  Actual knitting! And a picture!

I am actually at the second toe/heel decrease now.  once that's completed I'll show you. 

So far so good.  :D

Or Not

I'm impatiently awaiting my Boy and his Bow yarn.  Silly USPS hasn't updated the tracking information so, no new pictures. 

However, I'll be trying something new this weekend, and afterthought leg.  I know right!  Looks easy and I've been reassured that it is in fact as easy as it looks.  I am still skeptical.  I'll be trying it tomorrow and will let you know how it works out.
