I have an FO...

But I'm not showing it to you today. Nah! I need dh home in daylight hours willing to model for me first. Soon, soon. It's not earth shattering. I think you can wait.

Instead... here's a couple of WIP's.


The Seahawks Socks... well friends, unfortunately, Green Bay got it's magic on Saturday... snow... and LOTS of it. It's like magic for those Packers. So they sent the Seahawks packing for home. And now... I have a nearly finished sock in progress. What to do? I am thinking I'll finish this sock off if only to retrieve my needle for other projects... but what about that second sock? So far this one was knit (with the exception of the heel) during games. But there are no more games to knit for this season. Hmm... I would like to say I'm going to put it away until next season, but I don't think it's in my person to leave a single sock laying around like that for that long. Ah... revealing more of the neurotic mind!

And... I think I finally came upon a solution to Moms Scarf Dilemma. It's not the most fabulous thing on the planet, but it matches her mitts within reason and the stitch count is good with the yarn. I did find one pattern that I really liked, alas... there was hideous pooling with the yarn. Figures eh? I took this this morning but I've worked it several turns more since then.


So that's all the knitting news I have for you. I've been busy with the kids lately, so progress has slowed.

A little funny... Miss E is rather loud lately. She doesn't have an inside voice. Nope. And especially not when shopping. Most of what comes out of her mouth is pure jibber jabber, but she has a few words. While in Costco this morning in an attempt to get her to quiet down a wee bit (I don't need every person in the store to stare at me!) I started singing 'Johnny Appleseed' quietly. So then... she just started yelling "AAAA-MEN!" over and over... there's just no sneaking around when you have toddlers!

Oh, geez - my Seahawks hat is still sitting on the upside-down-cannister-turned-hat-form. I'm in the same boat - I just don't have the heart to finish it up right now. If only I'd just finished the crown during the game instead of working on my Pomotamus! Sigh...

Of course, I can only tell from the pics, but I like the way Moms Scarf is knitting up. Is it pooling after you took the shots? If so, too bad - it's a pretty start!

Funny, a woman I work with has no inside voice, either. Unfortantely, as she's much older than a toddler, there's not good excuse!

I say finish the Seahawks socks, even though the season is over. At the very least, you could put them away and get them out to wear for the first time when the season starts again in the fall.
