Not What I'd Planned

Today's blog post was going to be all about the pretty pictures I took in the mountains over the weekend because I wanted to show you how beautiful my home state is, but that ain't happening.

Last night was "Hookah" night. So off I went up to Panera's to hang out with my wonderful yarn friends. We had missed each other terribly because we missed a week.  Lot's of catching up took place by looking at pictures of Annie's craft room that got new cabinets (soooo jealous!),  looking at the lovely yarn porn that Melanie bought on her recent trip (Again, so jealous!), looking at the progress Dawn has made on her rug (so pretty!) and meeting a new yarn buddy Jennifer (Hey Sweetie!). It was so fun to sit and enjoy a couple of hours with these ladies and to learn.  I'm so excited, I'm about to bust! Are you ready?  Here it is.......

The beginnings of my first sock!  Yea!! There's not a lot done on it, basically just the ribbing, but it's a start. I have to give a HUGE thank you to Melanie.  Her patience and guidance have been a huge in I probably would have given up in frustration without her. There were no tears, but I did contemplate throwing everything across the room in a childish temper tantrum.  As I told another friend, the magic loop is not so magic for me.  But we're getting there!

Just because I'm so excited, here's another picture. Isn't it pretty? Please say yes, if for no other reason than to humor me. I think I drove Car Guy and  My Boys nuts last night because every time I'd finish a row, I'd have to show them and ask them what they thought.  There was an awful lot of indulgent eye rolling - Yes, I saw it! But seriously, I'm just beside myself!

I understand that sock making can be addictive and there is a lot of truth to that because I want to hurry up and finish the post so I can work on it as I'm at lunch right now. I swear it's calling to me!

I want to wrap up by thanking everyone who stops by for a visit, leaves a comment and shares the love.  You've helped make keeping this digital diary a lot of fun! Have a wonderful day!!!


  1. Aww.. it's purty. I did a pair of socks.. one.. :-) It gives you a lot of respect for sock-makers. I remember the feeling of wanting to get done so I could wear them! Good job!! I'll have to post a photo of my socks just to show "I DID IT!" lol.. ((hugs)), Teresa :-)
