Not Enough Time!

It seems the more I *want* to knit, the *less* time I have! Is that one of Murphy's Laws? I have made a little progress on the Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawl by Susan. I started on Saturday in between rounds of homework. That was my reward for completing tasks and to break up the monotony of sitting at the computer all day.

I'm using Mountain Colors Bearfoot in an unknown colorway. The ball band is currently MIA. It is a lovely mix of blue, purple, teal and little flashes of gold. I tried to make it be socks, but it just wasn't cooperating. The yarn seems much happier this way. This is a gift for my mother--she selected the yarn last year at The Fold. She just doesn't know it isn't going to be socks anymore.

There are socks calling me too. I have the Rockin Sock Club Kit from Blue Moon, as well as some stash whispering to me, well, OK, some of it is YELLING at me, that it wants to grow up into socks. I've been eyeing the Monkey socks from knitty in some lightweight STR in January One, that was a prize from Cara back in January. (Thanks, Cara!!) Plus, the Colinette Jitterbug that I mentioned last time is being kind of loud over there. Especially the Alizarine. The Lagoon is a little quieter.

Again, pictures to follow, when I figure this whole thing out. :)


Hi Honey, I'm Home...

I've considered blogging for a couple of years and finally decided to take the plunge. I'm karen, I live in Michigan, I love to knit socks and I love to collect sock yarn. In fact, today I scored a package from The Loopy Ewe with some Poodle Skirt by Scarlet Fleece and Biker Chick by All Things Heather.

At lunch-time, I ran out to pick up a US8 for a shawl project, and ran into some Colinette Jitterbug at my LYS. Two of them followed me home with my new needle, so all was not lost.

Last week, the mail-man brought my first installment of the 2007 Rockin' Sock Club from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. Definitely worth the wait.

Right now, there's more sock-knitting than sock-knitting time to go around to all of the projects. Along with a full-time job in marketing, I have a part-time job in retail and am taking 6 credit hours in Web Design. Not much spare time here...

As soon as I figure out how to post photos, I'll share a little eye candy. :)
