and feeling rather like a turtle. I swear, everytime this thing come home it works slower. I know, I know, I have dialup. But trust me, it never took 3 minutes to load a blank blogger page before. /sigh. And last week was a real bitch at work so the last thing I wanted to face was a barely moving computer. However...I'm all rested now, so here ya go.
I've tried to visit all your blogs but due to the slow speed I'm not there yet. Sorry, I will make the rounds. It's just that loading all the pics I've missed takes forever. Plus, and this is weird. Since it's slow I get tired of waiting; go off to do something and totally forget to come back. I guess I really and truly got out of the internet habit *G*.
What have I been doing? Well, I've made 4 skirts for summer; sorted a lot of cabinets; read books; watched Deadliest Catch; went to softball games; went out to look at wheat; tried to keep from being eaten alive by mosquitos; started and frogged a sweater 3 times at least and knitted some socks.
First of all the Cookie socks. Cookie sent me the yarn since I couldn't find any here...and I think that whoever thought up the color scheme must have been growing lantana and yarrow in their flower garden.
Standard sock pattern made short for summer on Crystal Palace #2 bamboo dpns.
Time spent: I have no idea.
And then these are in progress
Yarn: Knitpicks Memories
Pattern: Cider Moon's Campfire Socks
And again Crystal Palace bamboo #2s
The ribbing is so fun to do, and went really fast. I thought about carrying it down on the foot like I was supposed to but it's pretty thick and sproingy and I wasn't sure how it would feel in my shoes so I chickened out.
And that's that. I'll try to be around more often! Oh...and Laura didn't come to my house. Tricker!
