Hiya! Sorry about all the unreturned emails. I will be getting on that tomorrow morning... the life it eat the head when it's not the most optimal time for it. Eh, we go on.
So today's prize is a set of needles and stitch markers. It's a set of Clover Takumi DPN's. Size US 0 / 2.0 mm. Never used from my stash of needles. I bought these back when I was a new knitter and all these snobby knitters told me that you are only a good knitter if you knit on a size zero. So wanting to become a better knitter I got the zero's. Turns out when you knit as tight as I do size zero really doesn't do much for you. Not on socks at any rate. So they have pretty much no use for me.
*edited to remove rant about stupid butt monkeys*
It's hot and I'm cranky. :P
I'm also including five stitch markers from my little box of stitch markers. I can't remember where they came from, but as I have some super special stitch markers from my best friend, KnitWit Momma and Good to be a girl I figured I'd give away some of those that don't seem to find their way into the rotation of use. They are pink hearts. ;)
It's been hot here today. When I went outside to take the photo sweet little TKK went with me so she could have a roll in the old catnip. She took a step outside and decided it was not for her and went back inside. This a cat who has been locked inside the house away from the nasty smoke. o.0 She's been harassing me to get outside for days and she didn't even want to hang out and play. So yeah the A/C is going and it's lovely inside. But just knowing it's hot outside irritates me. *L*
Here's the current sock I'm working on for SoS. It's the same pattern as the last socks I knit for Cookie. They are my Dizzy Otter Socks. I'm using Cookie Cutter Short Rows for the heels and toes and doing them Toe up. The ones I knit for Cookie were cuff down and flappity.
Okay I'm going to get back to my knitting. I have three pairs of socks going right now. They are all in various shades of blue yarn. Two of them are blue with brown yarn. o.0 I told you the life it eat mah head. That or the cat, she was licking my face again last night. I has a flavor!
What day is it anyway? This week seems like it's been going on for ages and ages. o.0
