Due to the incredibly vicious storms that blew through here Thursday night and early Friday morning, I had no internet service yesterday. Had not power for almost 12 hours either, but you know the computer was the bigger deal. We have a generator, but not everything is attached, blah, blah blah. Anyway, I finished my first cuff of the Socks that Rock and am working on the second one now. Too cool! I completed my first picot edge and my button holes (though I opted out of the one row button hole) look nice if I do say so myself. I started looking at buttons for the sock, but I'm not sure yet what direction I want to go with those yet. Something funky and fun I think to match the mood of the socks.
I can't wait to get started on the actual sock part, but I have to get those needles first! The WS looks very cool to me. The purls almost ended up making a rib pattern (whether or not they were supposed to is another story). And I just love, love, love the colors, don't you?
I've got to get my butt to the post office today to mail my Dye-o-rama pal her yarn. Enough already with the procrastinating! Can't wait to see what she says about it and what she posts about it on her blog. I've got to get moving on my One Skein swap pal also. Have to pick out the skein for June and start thinking about what I will make for August.
