So here, finally, is the picture of the socks I knit for Becky and finished a few weeks ago. Becky is the proud model. :) These socks were knit on size 2 needles using slightly more than one skein of Lion Brand sock yarn. Yup, slightly more than one. Sigh. If I'd realized when I started how much yarn would be needed, I would have made the legs longer -- since I started top down it wasn't an option to change that unless I really wanted to pick up from both cast on edges.
I just finished watching Fight Club. Disturbing movie - and the clipped in porn scenes were...um...over the top. I'm actually paying better attention to the basketball games tonight in an attempt to fix my frame of mind. I totally need to find something odd in my DVD collection to get my boss back with for making me finish watching this movie. At the very least, he owes me a recording of the World Figure Skating Championships.
...and just to change the subject again, JenLa
asked some interesting questions. The rules are here
1. A blog which you think people have not discovered.
Probably this one
. Perhaps if enough of us visit, we'll convince Timothy to post more often. :) purls of wisdom indeed - and geek code to boot.
2. A blog whose author lives close to you physically. Just get as close as you can, it’s all relative.
Well, there are a few
who live in the same town as me...some good friends in that list, too. To pick one at random, Becky the Twentysomething
keeps me laughing quite a bit when she posts.
3. An unusual or weird animal picture.
posts of stuff on Chuck
4. An entry that made you laugh and got you strange looks from family or co-workers.Mighty Girl
has a few good examples.
5. An idea you wish you’d thought of.
6. Something you’d like to knit.
I really want to knit these lace stockings
from White Lies Designs. Her patterns kick tail.
7. A picture of something you consider beautiful.
How about the sunset on the Gulf of Mexico? This is one of a series I snapped while on a cruise last fall.
It's unbelieveable how long a sunset lasts and yet how quickly it passes.
8. A blog whose author you’d like to one day meet in person
I think it would be cool to meet most of the bloggers I read regularly, but Franklin
is definitely somewhere at the top of the list.
9. A blog of someone you have already met in person.
She of the Small Hands
, who shall soon be local.
Wow -- that all took much longer than I thought. Of course, getting continually dragged back into the NCAA tourney might have something to do with it. I know I picked Duke to win, but go LSU -- because I think Texas has better chance of beating you. :D
