Havest Sock swap 07

Harvest Sock swap 07 I joinned my very first sock swap. Sign ups are until September 18th. For this swap you knit one sock and then send the rest of the supplies and pattern to your partner so that they can make the mate.

They are having a contest .Here are the details:

Part 1: If we can get more than 20 people to sign up, I will toss everyone’s names into a hat and draw one for a prize.

Part 2: For those who do sign up, if you can entice someone to sign up, and when they do sign up they let me know you got them to, your name will go into a hat for a prize.

I encourage all you sock knitters out there to join. Come on who doesn’t wanna win free yarn.

A moment of insanity.

Ok so I had a moment of insanity this morning. I have been chastized for it by several people. I will not stop blogging I promise.My blogging just doesn’t seem as fun with out showing you my projects and such.I promise to figure something out for my picture situation.

I have been on the search for a sock pattern to knit now that my Thuja socks are done. But nothing is speaking to me. I want to knit up a pair of socks for my SP11 pal. She is not a sock knitter but would like some knitted socks. If you know any socks patterns let me know and I’ll check em out.Can’t print them out but I’ll still check em’ out.

Mother Nature Strikes

They say hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.Well Mother Nature must have been in one heck of a rage for last night a round of vicious storms hit our area. The thunder was so loud it woke me up and the lighting was so close it made me jump up. It scared the crapola out of me. I tell you it can sure make ones heart beat a little faster when you awoken from a sound sleep in such a furoious manner.
Do you think she could have a little kinder to me? But Alas it was not to be for not only did she awaken me but lighting also hit my phone lines which was connected to my computer and now the modem is out. I am on an old pc that has no sound and I am not able to upload any pics because my camera is not compatible with it. And can you say slow,snails pace that it. It takes it’s good ole time uploading some of the web pages. Guess that could be why it was no longer in use. Let me tell you I miss my other pc and it’s only been one day. It may not have been the best computer but it worked for what I needed.Wayne is going to take mine to work with him tomorrow and see if one of his friend can get it working again. He says this guys used to be a computer techie.

Here’s keeping my fingers crossed because I really don’t like this pc.I have nothing downloaded on this one and I don’t remember all my sites that I had in my faves file. But I guess I need to be thankful that I had a backup. Still I do hope the other one can be fixed.I really can’t afford a new right now.
I had planned to show you a finished Thuja sock that I am working on for my mother as a christmas pressie. But that’s out now. I was actually excited to share it because this will be the first time I actually have a christmas present done this early. I am going to start a pair of Hedera socks next. 
Ya know I was just thinking how funny it is that just a few short months ago I was afraid to try sock knitting and now that I’ve finished my first and second pair I have my third pairon the needles and the fourth pair ready to go on the needles. It is so addicting and now I have no ideas why I waited so long to try sock knitting.
Well I am off to work on more socks. Happy Knitting.
