Socktoberfest Blues

Last week Monday, I turned in a HUGE consulting project that I'm oh, so glad to be done with. Writing deadlines just make me want to knit more, and more knitting means no writing was getting done for awhile. No writing meant lots of scrambling and sleepless nights before the big deadline, but now it's done. Turned in. And the knitting has begun.

I spent the first day of increased freedom reorganizing my stash. We moved somewhat recently, and in our new place, we have a little alcove area in our bedroom that hubby thought would make a great "Knit Nook." That's right--it was HIS idea! I have it set up with a comfy chair, a lamp, a table, and a nice rug. And, so far, my stash has not outgrown that space, and it probably won't for a long time.

In reorganizing, I found some socks that had been forgotten. A pair partly done, using Regia bamboo. Another pair of koigu that may never be finished (I knit the first one way too big, and frogged it and started over. At this point, I'm not done with the new first sock.) I finished the Regia bamboo sock, and struggled to find the remaining yarn for the second sock. Oh, do I ever have Second Sock Syndrome! I don't want to keep knitting another boring blue bamboo sock, when I could be doing something much more exciting. Like what?

Like making baby hats. Baby hats are the world's most perfect knit. They can be made with sock yarn. They are needed and appreciated. They don't take long to make. AND, best of all--you don't need to knit two! I have made three baby hats in the last week. I've been slowly knitting on a pair of socks, but baby hats--that's where it's AT!

So, what AM I going to do about that Socktoberfest KAL I signed up for? Make baby socks, of course!

Does your nook have a tv? I find that knitting while watching baseball is a wonderful pairing.

It doesn't have a tv in it, but nearby. I like to turn the tv on and listen while I knit.

I think knitting and baseball are a wonderful pairing, too. They both have a nice pace about them. It's too bad baseball isn't year round, eh?

not whenever they truly dont care about our survival which they dont it could be bullshit but when it does materialize it could probably be somthing like this . NO warning whatsoever, thats why the many significant governments on the entire world have already been creating underground bunkers which almost certainly want function anyhow

I am curious to find out what blog platform you are using? I'm having some minor security problems with my latest website and I would like to find something more secure. Do you have any solutions?

Posted by: local homes for sale at August 31, 2012 8:55 AM

Superb website you have here but I was wondering if you knew of any user discussion forums that cover the same topics talked about here? I'd really like to be a part of community where I can get comments from other knowledgeable individuals that share the same interest. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. Thanks!

The concept stage is an important one, listening, understanding, and giving calculating results is the key

Your ISP may require you to rename your main index file to a certain file name such as index.htm or index.html or home, in order for your server to correctly identify the correct web page as the start file. Whatever it is they will indicate on the net server faqs or setup pages. It may be any amount of names or extensions names. Some Isp's require that you rename your home file from iWeb's index.html to index.htm or to home.html or welcome.html .

Stephen: I'm interested in your Letters in the Mail subscription. I'm a high faculty English teacher, and that i considered this could be a excellent way to receive my students to write responding to your letters. Even so, We have to be certain that the topics of the letters are going to be appropriate for my students 9, 10, and 11th graders. Will you please comment on what the topics are going to be in general? Thank you.

I am really enjoying the theme/design of your weblog. Do you ever run into any browser compatibility issues? A number of my blog visitors have complained about my blog not working correctly in Explorer but looks great in Opera. Do you have any advice to help fix this problem?

Hmm it seems like your blog ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips and hints for first-time blog writers? I'd genuinely appreciate it.

Posted by: ビジネスバッグ at September 24, 2013 2:35 AM

Do you have a spam issue on this website; I also am a blogger, and I was wondering your situation; we have developed some nice practices and we are looking to exchange strategies with others, please shoot me an email if interested.

Hey! This is kind of off topic but I need some help from an established blog. Is it very difficult to set up your own blog? I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty quick. I'm thinking about making my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Appreciate it

With havin so much written content do you ever run into any problems of plagorism or copyright infringement? My blog has a lot of completely unique content I've either written myself or outsourced but it appears a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my permission. Do you know any techniques to help stop content from being stolen? I'd really appreciate it.

Hi there would you mind sharing which blog platform you're using? I'm looking to start my own blog in the near future but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique. P.S Sorry for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

There were many champions who would participate in the fist fights and these would be also held for the sake of the fallen
heroes. He remained an iconic figure and the king of
heavy weight champions. Jesse Ferguson's use of the Brain-Pads technology got him
back in the ring and ready to continue his career,
safe from further concussions and enjoying lesser knockouts from glass jaw syndrome.

A large number of these weight loss supplements will work in
aiding weight loss but this will only happen if you accompany their use
with healthy eating as well as exercise. Individuals need to at least exercise
for 30 minutes each day. Dark blue color cuts down appetite whilst
hues like orange, yellow plus red result in the appetite go sky

Many people are afraid to visit a chiropractor for neck problems,
and I used to be one of those people. Year 4 is given over to a clinical internship for 15 weeks (one trimester) for a total of 450 hours or 30 hours per week.
My first suggestion for reducing headaches will even save you money.
