Missing the socks

I was so sick of knitting socks after I finished the Christmas pairs, I didn't want to touch my small DPNs for a month. But now I admit that I'm missing my sock knitting.

And I really don't know how I'll wait until the beginning of the Olympics to begin the Embossed Leaves Socks. I just googled the name and saw many finished pairs (not to mention a pair in person made by the designer herself last Wednesday :) ). They're so beautiful, I want mine now!

Meh. I'll wait. At least I was able to swatch and I think I'm all set now. I have really small feet so I usually try to get gauge and then I use needles one size smaller than what I got gauge with. It has worked very well for me so far.

Ok I'll go work on my sweater now (does the fact that I'm actually happy to be knitting on a Friday night instead of going out make me a loser?).

I'm surfing blogs and knitting and it's my favorite way to spend my Fridays.

It does not make you a loser in any way, I think it's actually kind of cool!

If it makes you feel better, I had a grand ole time this week-end knitting and watching TV. In fact it my main home activity besided petting my felines.Huummm...
