THEY'RE DONE! THEY'RE DONE!
(don't mind the beer bottle in the back - it's been a rough few weeks)
Yes, ladies and gents, I am FINALLY finished the Shiny socks, also known as my Kaylees, also known as The Sock Project Of DOOOM. I bound off less than 1/2 hour ago, and I'm wearing them to work tomorrow. I really needed to get the needles free so I can start Sister 1's Slytherin Socks (once the yarn comes), so I finally buckled down and did the last 2 pattern repeats.
In other news, Viking and I are in our new place - yaay! I'm just getting things unpacked, so there's not a lot of crafting, but I have started knitting again now that we have TV for me to use as background noise. I'm knitting a modified Circle Shrug for Sister 2, and will be stenciling a shirt for Sister 3, and knitting a beret for my mother, so there will be some hardcore crafting in the next few weeks. I've also started cross-stitching again (it is ALMOST as addicting as knitting for me, but harder on the eyes). Plus, I got a really cute idea for an iPod cozy, so I'll be trying my hand at making cutesy things out of felt soon. Viking and I are going out tomorrow, and we may stop at Michaels. For his birthday in October, I told him I would teach him to knit, including buying any supplies he needed to start up. He hasn't decided what to knit yet, so maybe going there will inspire him. Also - I want to fondle more yarn. :D
I am *so* glad my crafty mojo has come back - look for more here very soon!
