Did I tell you how much I wanted to join Socktoberfest? How I wish I can knit a pair of sock like these. Did I also tell you I suck at sock knitting. Remember this? My very first sock knitting attempt. I started it 5 days before christmas in '05 and was hoping to finish it as DH christmas present. After 10 months I finally finished knitting the right side. Yup! Just the right side. How pathetic! And it came out nasty, especially at the toe decrease part. I'm not kiddin. I gotto take a picture. You'll definitely burst out laughing if you see it. Oh well, may be I should be glad that I didn't join. It's obvious I'm not ready to send a pair of crappy sock across the globe to some anxious knitter awaiting for her pretty handknit sock.
So what's going with knitting...here's my swatch for the rowan ryc moss stitch jacket using Rowanspun in Thorne. What do you think? It's a bit dull from the picture but I'm really liking the little fuzzy tweedy effect. I also did a swatch with Punch, another pumpkin, orangy kinda shade from the same line. It looks fine but I think I still prefer grey. Always go with your first instinct, right?
Alrighty, here's another progress shot of my verrrrrry slow going quilt project. I'm not surprise if I'm going to take another ten more months to complete the whole thing. Anyways, gotto get back to work before my boss spot me blogging again.
