to me!!!!! Yep I am a whole year older today (yes I know technically it is only a day older but my number changed today) The big 32!!! =)
I have been doing what I want today and making what I wanted today for dinner! Hubby made me my favorite devils food chocolate cake and even went as far as to only frost half of it. I really do not like icing and eat around it.
Well that is the big thing for today now for some knitting content. Oh on a somewhat unrelated topic I went thru my list of FO's, pictures on my computer, pictures in flickr and what I blogged about and all I have to say is wow I am really un-organized this year!! I have things from January that I didn't blog about, yarn I spun and have already knitted up that I didn't blog about. Yarn I bought and didn't blog about. Yep me miss I am going cold sheep bought yarn. Granted most was my belated christmas gift for the Hubby but there was 2 I guess you could call them illegal skeins of yarn purchased. 2 very nice skeins mind you. =) So considering that the last time I purchased yarn for the sake of purchasing yarn was back in November I think I am still doing pretty good. Of course I went and updated my totals and even though I have knitted through over 3900 yards of yarn I am still on the plus side of the yarn stash at least I am using it (sounds good right)
Anyway back to knitting content. My March socks for SAM.
My Monkeys are done!! A few post ago I ended with the yarn cakes and now I have socks! I did them toe up and used almost every bit of yarn. I only had about a foot and a half left over in all from both socks.
Yarn is Claudia Handpaints Short Sport in Purple Earth. I really like this yarn, Nicely twisted and glides nicely when knitting.
Short row heel to maximize yardage
Micro Monkey chart. Basically it is the monkey chart with a few stitches taken off each side and since I used size 3 needles the micro monkey chart fitted my sock number perfectly.
Off to do more of what I want to do!!!
