I spent all of last week sewing and most of today as well.

I am going to do some knitting this week. I'd like to finish the gloves for the living history museum. I have a few pairs of socks to finish up and I'd like to do a little more sewing.

I finished another pair of socks last week but I forgot to take pictures. I'll have to do that next week. They are pretty nice. I wore them immediately after they came off the needles.

Still nothing

I haven't had anything to say this week. My little girl's birthday was Tuesday. A bunch of us pooled our money and bought her a new camera. She was so very excited. It was a good present.

She applied for her first job on Tuesday. I hope she gets one and that she really enjoys it.

I have a pair of socks almost completed. I am teaching a class on making buttons on Saturday. I'm very nervous. I have sat around teaching stuff often and that doesn't bother me, but standing up in front of people makes me queasy. I'm going to make sure there is a table and I'll just sit down with people and talk. :)

Quiet Blog Week

After all the action last week it has been pretty quiet here this week. I have knit most of a sock, nice pattern, nice yarn. I will probably finishing them this weekend. I have to spend next week sewing some garb and doing a little artsy painting. Nothing big.

Today I'm going shopping to get my daughter's birthday present. I hope she likes it. It's a big present for a big birthday.

I have joined another knitting swap. I talked my friend Terri into joining too. We are having a lot of fun planning all the stuff together and that is making the shopping extra fun. I think our packages will end up being a lot similar, but there are really only so many ways you can put them together anyway.

Off to start my day. Everyone have a fantastic weekend.

Today - this happened

And while my friend was busy baking and filling my house with lovely smells I did this:

They are knit with Reynolds Soft Sea Wool, on size 2 (2.5mm). The Pattern is A Little Twisted Socks by Debbie O'Neill.

Two pairs in one week. I'm not sure the challenge is much of a challenge. The only thing that would be a challenge is if I could keep up the momentum.

Comment Spam

I have been getting an annoying number of spam comments on my posts. I have been going through and deleting them but if they continue to suck up my time I'm going to start moderating comments. This is not a pretty option but better than no comments at all.

1 down 51 to go!

Here they are the first completed pair of socks 2008.

They are my own pattern, knit on 3.25mm needles with Patons Kroy Sock, Men's size 10. They are suppose to be knee-high-ish but the leg they are suppose to fit wasn't here so I could check.

My son finds the entire occasion terribly exciting

Whatever shall I cast on next?
