I just realized I forgot to post a follow-up to the last poll:
Hermione’s Everyday Socks won by a landslide. When you first started voting, it was almost neck and neck. I had happily started the first sock before Halloween. However *sighs*…the cinquain tells it all:
Where’s the past excitement?
What happened to the desire?
Recently when doing my daily reading of blogs, there was a post mentioning Christmas and how much time was left until then. I felt the fog was lifted from my eyes. This haiku represents that wake up call:
Six weeks, five days more,
Third out of six stares at me.
Where’d time go? Quick, knit!
While the 24th seems to loom ahead like a flashing, neon sign, I must kick the holiday knitting into high gear. Her Inner Steel is almost done. I had added five more rounds, started the ribbing, and was on the picot edging when I realized I had too many stitches on my circ. So there was some frogging to go back and redo that decreasing round to get my numbers right.
I have a bit more ribbing to go, the picot edge, and then bind off! Finishing this gift will put me halfway through holiday gifts. I do have to say while I have had setbacks due to my own dumb mistakes, I love working with this Malabrigo Chunky.
Enough blogging. Time to get my knit on.
TGIF. Have a good weekend.
