So Keri pointed out the other day that one couldn't make witty and fabulous comments about my witty and fabulous posts. Today I actually found the time to figure out how enable this feature, so without further ado, you may now comment on my exquisite knitting

La chaussette est finie!

I wish I could say that both socks were finished....... but alas. I started a new sock using my Blue Moon Fiber Arts stuff, and its looking alot better than the first time. I made the rather rash decision to rib the entire leg of the sock. An explanation is necessary: I hate, hate, hate ribbing, with a burning passion straight out of hell. However, given the nature of the yarn and my desire to have a perfectly fitting sock, I decided to make a brave decision and rib.......all 6 f*cking inches. 4 inches in, I am thinking this is not brave, its crazy. I did take the sock surfing with me this weekend. Well, not actually in the water, but the sock, Jack and I camped all weekend while attending the Rogue Longboard Contest. I must say, tent knitting is possibly my favoritist time and place to knit.

Here we have the most handsome, wonderful, adorable, awesome dog ever, posing beautifully from the security of our tent:

And here we have a picture of what I did as soon as I woke up Sunday morning. In the background one can see the tent and my sleeping bag. Thats right, I stayed in my sleeping bag and knit.

Curious as to what happened with the sock? Well, I started knitting it with the most wonderful Blue Moon Fiber Arts stuff, cast on waaaaaay to many stitches, knit the most humongous sock until I had finished the gussets, frogged the sock, bought new sock yarn and started over with a brand new sock. Now if that doesn't sound like a knitter, what does? The new sock yarn I bought is a self-striper, a wool/cotton/acrylic blend. I'm just finishing the arch of the sock. Here we see a picture of the sock reposing in some grass at the local park during my lunch break today:

So it is official, socks are my new favorite project. I adore them. I have already bought more sock yarn. I now have 5 skeins of sock yarn.......and I haven't even completed an entire sock. If the aforementioned statement didn't sound just like a knitter, the fact that I have already bought skeins and skeins of sock yarn should.
