Friday, April 7

proving myself wrong

i will finish a pair of socks in a week. not a month, or two months, but a week. of course, to make sure i make my goal, i picked a fairly easy pattern in which i don't have to read a chart every row.

the dublin bay socks from mossy cottage knits (look for the free patterns link about half way down on the left). the yarn is



vesper sock yarn in the strange little mama colorway. i started on wednesday night at 6 p.m. can i finish the first sock in 48 hours? stay tuned.

p.s. no grey's until april 30th? and then only 4 eps left? what is a girl to do?

I just casted on a pair of Dublin Bays yesterday, in some pretty pink Lorna's Laces - I'm pretty sure mine won't be done in a week, though!

I can not believe that anyone in the whole world can knit anything that fast, but if anyone can do it, it's you!

Yours looks great.

Drooling...where did you manage to find that Vesper? I am a sock knitting virgin but have been wanting to get my hands on some Vesper in a pink colorway for a while! Blast!

Have you tried Sunshine Yarns on Etsy? Dani makes the most amazing colorways...I just bought denim and Taos. Check her store out!

Ooooh, I'm loving my own colorway! Ha! Well, you will most certainly finish your SLM socks before I do, since I have to ditch mine temporarily for Sockapalooza.

Hey, Amy!

There might not be any new Grey's until April 30, but maybe this will help hold you over...

My husband is at Fisher Plaza (KOMO) fairly often for work, and on Saturday evening, he found himself riding the elevator with Sandra Oh. She was busy talking with two handler-types, but he reports that she's just as teeny-tiny as she looks on TV.

Sadly, no Mer or Der sightings to report to you, but he did also see Isaiah Washington (yum-yum-YUM!!) from the window. I've asked him to explain in precise detail just how beautiful that man is, but words seem to fail... ;o)
