Not really – I walked about 3.5 miles this morning with my dad. We went to the Lafayette Reservoir, and then walked around Nut Creek in search of a cake pan and then down to the Target and the Farmer’s Market on Locust. My dad got me coffee at Peet’s and a bagel.
You guys know how much I like Starbucks, so it ALMOST pains me to admit that the coffee at Peet’s is superior… though Starbucks has better “junk” drinks, like the white chocolate mocha. Mmm. Anyway.
Now, though, I have been sitting around winding yarn and watching Court TV*. Yesterday I finished the Kaffe Socks:
They turned out really great and I’m wearing them right now. I am pretty impressed with myself – I whipped them out really fast.
Some of you have been asking about my Sock Project 2008. Er… I am totally going to frog the January socks because they just weren’t fitting right. But for February I drew Shibui/Monkey – and already finished a Monkey. Last night I cast on for the second one. I will totally admit that it is not with the Shibui I was supposed to be using, but hey.
Sock Project 2008: Where I just knit a lot of socks for myself with no particular rules? And occasionally follow my rules? Sounds good to me. I’m making this up as I go along!
And hey, the January sock yarn was Regia, and I just finished a pair of Regia socks, so I’m sort of half-following the rules.
Socks That Rock in (clockwise from top left): Pirate’s Booty, Oregon Red Clover Honey, Knitty Rocks, and Froggin.
I think I’m going to use the Froggin for the “earth” part of Project Spectrum. Right now it is “fire” and I have some Lorna’s Laces in, I believe, the “Flame” colorway, and I think that would be awesome, but I have to finish the Monkeys first. I think it would be cool to have themed socks for the elements in this version of Project Spectrum.
At Stitches next week I’m going to look for other yarns that will fit the water and air parts of the spectrum.
I feel like Mexican food.
*I don’t care if they call themselves Tru TV, it will always be Court TV to me.
