Summer summer summer

There's a contest at Skeins her way. It's the annual "List your summer goals" contest! And because I like lists, I'm entering!

I'm not going to set too many goals because I've been in a knitting slump for most of the year and I don't know if I'll ever come out of it. Still, I have goals:

1. Knit 2-3 pairs of socks
2. Finish the Cardigan for Merry
3. Knit (or at least begin to knit) an Alan Dart toy

That's it!

In other news, I am terribly frustrated with the Cable Net socks. I've now knit the leg twice and it just doesn't work. My gauge changed and the sock is way too big. I thought I probably knit the wrong size by accident so I tried again with the smaller size and it was way too small. I'm so frustrated that I don't even want to look at the yarn anymore. I think Cable Net sock #1 won't ever have a mate.

I'm not sure if you like chocolate as much as knitting but if you do you should go to and fill out the survey.
I work for a word of mouth marketing company and we're looking for people to recieve free Dove chocolate and talk about it! So if you're intersted, fill out the survey or you can email me at,
