Sock Pattern #1 in Sock Madness 2 is complete! Here they are. Done in Lorna's Laces colorway Mineshaft and knit on size 1 needles. Yep, Lisa, you nailed it right away. It's a bit difficult to see the laddering but see where it looks like there are holes in the sock? That's the laddering. Let me tell you, it's a bit unnerving to deliberatly let a stitch drop off the needle and watch it slide back 6 rows and then discover that you don't have to chase it and weave it back up! It makes you stop and freeze for a second: kinda like a Zombie! Then you just keep on knitting.
How about Dancing with the Stars last night? Those men are something else, aren't they? I was quite surprised at Steve Guttenberg...he's not half bad! And that Mario! Cristian is yum, too. Hopefully, the women will give them a run for their money tonight. Stay tuned, folks...this will be an interesting season.
Rain, rain, go away...DO NOT come again some other day (for a while, please). It's rained for the last 24 hours and we have almost 5 inches of rain so far...probably another 5 inches before it ends sometime tomorrow morning. The roads are awash and many roads are no longer drivable. The ground is so soaked from the 2 previous ice storms and snows that it is impossible for it to soak up any more.
I'm off to knit some more on a sweater that I'm working on...tonight was supposed to be a class for that same sweater but I don't have my homework done yet and the roads are so nasty that I don't relish a 30 mile drive there and back for the class...will have to try to catch up before the next Sock Madness pattern is released.
