because I think I'm -
so there's that...
I just realized that I have no socks on the needles - and my ever-burgeoning collection of striped, patterned, bright, coloured, happy sock yarns is calling me -
so I settled on this Opal yarn, 'Parrot' colourway, and prepared myself to succumb to the call of the Jaywalker pattern...
and then the mailman came by and dropped off a package from Blue Moon Fiber Arts - oh, yippee, the "Socks that Rock" yarn that I read about (woe to she who surfs the net in the wee hours with glass of wine in hand and credit card at the ready)!!
The yarn was still cold from being in the truck as I wound it into balls - which are, of course, uneven, because I just can't seem to eyeball it well - and cast on with 2.25mm needles ( also known as toothpicks) -
oh, just look at those colours - "Cobblestone Country" colourway - could they be more spring-ey? So that's a definite plus... although there is that slight twinge of guilt as I think, I could be making socks for my son who turns 10 in 2 weeks - and I still might -
and I have a beads-and-wire necklace kit from Addi to make for a friend's birthday in - whoa, 9 days!!! - so there's that niggle, too -
but these I can work on while waiting at my computer for pictures to load - and at the dentist's tomorrow - and at the chiropractor's later this week - so guilt begone!! It will all be done in good time...
and now, the printer - sigh
