Friday Edition

I've almost finished the first pair of stripper gloves. They still need to have trim put on them.


I've got a strong urge to cast on something else. I haven't quite decided if I want the peacock shawl - which most of you know I've been lusting after forever - or this little lace cardi. Because I can't make up my mind, I haven't done anything. However, I have been working on the vest trying to get it completed. So honestly, I can move on.

The temporal displacement is getting worse. Yesterday I decided it was Friday. Today I decided it was Wednesday. Wednesday. Ugh.

I finished the maze socks. I think the maze pattern turned out rather well!


GRRR I can't believe how much of a difference the needles made. There's a quarter of an inch difference. That's HUGE! I have two options: a) knit two more socks (one on each different needle to make complete sets) or b) live with it. It shouldn't take a rocket scientist to figure out what I'm going to do.



I've got the Lady Hawke sound track in my player, every time a song plays I have a strong desire to watch the movie. I may throw it in this weekend to get my fix. It won't be tonight, because I'll be playing poker with the boys.

With this post, I have 582 posts. Using my vast superpowers (this is where algebra saves the world) I figure sometime in the second week of August I'll reach 600. The contest? Figure out the exact day I reach my 600th post. I'll put together a goodie bag* for the winner. Leave your guess on this post in order to win.

One of the supervisors is walking around saying hey, nice shoes. Keep it up.

* Heather if you win, I'll make you a pair of socks instead of forcing you to fish.

I am going to guess the 3rd Now no cheating so you do not have to make more socks :)

I'm guessing the 11th. The maze socks are awesome despite the size difference.

August 17th.

I'm gonna go with the 6th of Aug. Love the maze socks. I'd probably just deal with the size difference since I'd most likely mess up knitting socks 3 and 4 and none of them would match.

Excellent socks-- and, yeah, I'd just live with the size difference too!

And I'm guessing it's August 10th--because I go back to school that day, and I want SOMETHING good to happen then!

OK I'll bite :)

I'm going to say August 16th. I don't think it's the 2nd week of August, but i'll stick w/ that anyways.

the maze socks look really cool! Now if I can get out of my non-knitting funk I can finish those dang socks I CO for last August - that's pretty sad... only 80% of one half of a sock down in a year. sad, sad, sad :)

I'm on vacation that week, so I'm going for the day right in the middle - August 12.

Roxie said...

OK, I'll pick Aug.10. You know you can easily swing this to pick the winner you want? But you would never do a thing like that, would you?

August 12, Wednesday, hump day.
