Sock News!

I'm super excited. I just turned my first heel!! This sock isn't as bad as I thought it would be. I'm so excited! I know its annoying when people post pictures of every little step of a project and I apologize I'm just so excited. Check it out!

We're not going to talk about how much was lost in Atlantic City. Luckily it was only play money from the boyfriend's boss and not ours. However, this weekend has shown me that he is never allowed to gamble without me or he loses a lot more. Silly boys and their poker. I'm not going to say it was my favorite thing however, I did have fun but I think this whole casino thing just isn't for me. Except there was a poor guy passed out at the slot machines at 12am so I have to admit there was some great people watching to be had.

Hopefully I can finish up the sock this week and show you all a finish project. I'm hoping I don't fall victim to the second sock syndrome. I wonder what the longest time between socks is? Let me know the longest its taken you to finish a pair. I've heard this can be quite a syndrome I wonder just how bad it can be...
Getting ready for the 100th episode of Family Guy!! I'm so excited!

Congratulations on the sock! As for the longest time between socks...I have a sock I made like 2 years ago that I've never made the mate for. A couple of other single socks are hanging around too...ooops.

Girl, don't apologize for being excited!! We love seeing pictures anyway! :) Watching all those decreasing and shaping stitches come to life and form an actual sock truly is exciting. Congratulations on feeling thrill! Hoot hoot ! :D

Here are some possible cow patterns (one is felted and the other sewn; both cute IMO)

Turning the heel soooo wasn't as scary as I thought it would be. Actually my least favorite part was picking up the stitchs for the gusset. yah that I didn't like but I think that's because my heel flap was a little messed up. I can't wait to see it finished!
