Believe It Or Not....I Have A FO!!


Yes, you heard me right...I actually have a finished object to show you! The *Thong Socks* are finished (I may have to work on the left toe some, doesn't quite feel right), I like the right sock better than the left...the both were made from the SAME ball of Trekking! They are just my fun socks...I won't be able to wear them until the fall, I needed a pair of socks to wear with my Chacos for hiking in cooler weather.

Things around here have been slow going on the knitting front...the Civil War Shawl really has gotten to the point where I knit and knit, yet I don't feel like I'm getting anywhere! I'm way off the pace, but ask me if I care? Don't get me wrong, I love knitting this shawl, I just have to have other things to occupy my mind! The second round is beginning June 1st if anyone is interested! Knitting on the baby blanket...and of course spinning! Oh yeah...and Spring Cleaning! The last room to work on is the---dat-da-da-dah...*Fiber Room*! I think I'll finish working on that when I get back from our camping trip next week! Hubby's going to put up some shelving for me...

I will be offline for a week beginning this Saturday till next Saturday...in the mountains camping! I'll be posting again before I leave.

Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!

You know Robin, I actually like the left sock better than the right. :o) I know what you mean about working for ages and not getting anywhere, though I'm talking about my battle with the bulge rather than knitting. I'm feeling very frustrated at the moment - hit a plateau! Enjoy your week away you lucky thing you. I'll look forward to seeing your pics when you return. Hugs.
