i socks

too bad i have hit the dreaded "second sock syndrome" that kris has written about on her blog. *sigh* oh well... so the fruits of the past week's labor...

first, i tried to start the second sh*tbrown legwarmer... i swear i tried REALLY hard. but i only got this far:

instead, i got distracted by that camoflauge stripe... and in my stash, there it was, a second and third skein. so, voila! sock. (^_^)
 
i love how the top part self-checkered! how cool is that.

but while i was in my stash, what did i find? why, more sock yarn, of course! about a year or so ago i had been ambitious and said i would start knitting socks. on ebay i purchased two skeins of this nifty trampoline yarn, which is sock yarn with elastic built in to reinforce the shape. so i thought now as a good a time as any to try it out! so i started making socks, and i think i'm giving these to my mom since they're more her style than mine:
 

again, love the self-striping. too bad it didn't continue onto the second sock, but eh... whatever. i'm not that anal about it. YET. hehe...

onto scary pictures now. so as i said before, i was looking through my stash. well, i separated my stash into 3 piles:

  • the workable pile - yarn that is perfectly separated by skein, hasn't been touched or used and is awaiting my creative hands to make it into something wonderful and to be enjoyed by whoever it is given to;
  • the "frog me" pile - yarn that has been used by my creative hands and has been made into hideous things that i would never be enjoyed by the people presented to (obviously i was off on my creativity that day); and
  • the "untangle me" pile - yarn that, in the mix of being used, being thrown around from apartment to apartment as i have moved quite a lot over the years... and is now a huge tangled mess.
the great news is my stash is organized. the horrible news is:
  1. i have quite a lot to knit (or de-stash... i'm thinking about it, still)
  2. i have quite a lot to frog
    (pics to come) and
  3. i have quite a lot to untangle

    yes, that is one HUGE laundry bag on the right. i don't know how it happened. oh well, i know what i'm doing this weekend.... *sigh* well, after i finish my socks, of course. (^_^)

oh, thought i might add the amuzing picture of my cat, karma, in a box. what is it about cats and boxes? i think he's trying to re-capture feelings he had when he was brought home from the adoption shelter:
