knitting and the life I almost have around it

public holidays are go!

so my monkey is home :) and as almost his first act once through the front door.. he broke one of my tape measures. He did try to fix it, which i found deeply hilarious. i share for your viewing pleasure.
His being home has naturally been somewhat of a handicap to my knitting.. yet here we are nonetheless:
today is of course the first day of the Southern Summer of Socks and i have a new pattern, yarn and beads and have cast on.. but tragically i have reached the yoke of my sweater and it whimpers at me if i leave it alone.
so SSS has started for me... but wont get properly underway until i have cast off the sweater i think. but really... cables. do you blame me?

Oh and i finished my first peacock sock.. so the pattern is pretty much sorted but i'm too frazzled at the moment to sort out a pdf..I've been thinking about SSS and what i want my goals to be. it would be fair to say i'm in my element with socks.. and knowing me, giving a quantity i want complete is less that useful. all i will say is i want to:

  • Complete (or frog) and unfinished pairs.
  • Write up all my sock patterns properly, as in pdf files.
Does that sound reasonable?

happy day off to all Aussies!
Peace Out,
Ms Spider

    How did he break a tape measure- maybe I don;t want to know!! Your jumper is looking really good!!!
    We don't have a holiday here today. :-( Only some states do.....
    Happy sock knitting.

    Yeah what's the story with the tape measure? Did he stand on it? Pull it out too fast and snap it?

    YAY! Monkey is back! :)

    I think your SSS challenges are perfect - can't wait to see all of those patterns in PDF. You should start making some cashola out of them :)
