My Cocaine ;)

I'm pathetically addicted to Ravelry! Hours on the site! I need help....

I finished up my first sock earlier this week. Here's my progress.

I'm not sure if I'm really digging the whole sock thing but it's not bad. Maybe it's because I'm hella focused on my sweaters right not.

I also knitted my friend Candice a pair of fingerless mitts after she saw mine and begged for a pair. An easy gift since they knit up in a couple of hours. I'm crazy pleased with this pair and love the decorative buttons I added on the outside edge. I used Malabrigo yarn for the first time and it's awesome! Will definitely have to use this yarn some more!

Look at me go!!!!

So I'm currently working on my first pair of socks and I just finished the heel flap! I'm really happy with how the sock is knitting up so far and I'm definitely enjoying this project. I'm right on target for where I'm supposed to be for my next sock class on Tuesday so I think I'll take the rest of this time to work on some other projects I've been neglecting the past week. I'm hella stoked tomorrow is MLK Day and I don't have to teach or bar tend!! Yippee!!!

All Riiiiight!!!

So, it looks like maybe I get how to blog! I'm hella stoked! Not too much to say right now. I'm able to be on this during the day because I'm home sick from teaching (NOT sick of teaching!). It's nice having the down-time to chill out with my fabulous weenies, Copper

and Meg

and to work on my knitting homework. I'm taking a knitting class right now at Knitch so as to learn how to knit socks. Seems to be going well so far! I'm quite a fan of this yarn (ONline Supersocke Winter Color 887) since it knits up as a faux fairisle. Nice!

More to come later...

My first attempt at this!

Hope this is working!!!!
