The knitting is back, baby! I'm so excited that I was finally able to get a project started, I can't stand it. After weeks (months?) of having not the right yarn (some times) or not the right needles (almost always) for anything I wanted to knit, I *finally* managed to push through and get a pair of socks started. They're nothing fancy by a loooooong stretch, just 3 x 1 ribbing, but they're knitting -- and at this point, I'll take it.
Here's the sock in question:
They might possibly end up being the ugliest socks I've ever seen, but I totally don't care. Well, I care a little bit, but enough to stop. I've had this skein of self-striping yarn in my stash for ages. Before I tore into it, it looked like this:
A little loud, but not bad. I've never knit with self-striping yarn before, and really wanted to give it a try. Now I'm just confused. Red! Green! Yellow! Rasta socks! With... pink and blue? And peach? For serious? I'm unimpressed. But I am beyond happy to be knitting again so I will not complain. Very much.
In other news, the sale of Mr. Right's house closes in about an hour, and we're mostly unpacked and settled here, so I get to squeeze in a little blogging now and again, and hopefully catch up on my bloggy reading and see what y'all have been up to while I've been moving house. Yay! I also managed to squeeze in my first Zumba class this morning, and wow. The only way I could manage to look any dorkier is if I were to be wearing those socks. It's definitely time to work on the coordination a bit.
So while I'm over here practicing my salsa moves, you go check out all the rest of the WIPW entries over at Tami's. I'll see you there!
