Ooooh, I know, fingerless monkeys!

Wow things are busy here! I know I said I was going to answer the question "What can you do with two picture frames, some fabric, and an i-cord" but... well, I haven't done it yet, so that will have to wait. Today, I have good news!

Yup, they're finished. I cast off last night... or early early early this morning. It took FOREVER and I may never do a pair of socks on size 1s again. Ever. I love the result though. So very comfy.

Pattern specs: Generic Toe up socks using Wendy Johnson's generic toe up pattern. I used Socks that Rock medium weight, color Rocktober. I discovered some things about myself while making these socks. First, I can never ever make a pair of stockinette stitch socks with a deadline. They will NEVER get done. And in order to get them done I have to work on them and only them. Also, I will probably never do a short row toe again, because I don't like the way it feels. Next I'm going to do the easy "figure 8" cast on. (Scroll down to where it says "Easy toe").

I LOVE them. Unfortunately, they're my mom's Christmas present, so I have to give them to her today... :( Oh well. :) I'm going to use the leftovers to make something special.

You'll have to wait to see what it is. Now I NEED to work on Loksins. I need to work on loksins for like, a hour a day, and then work on something else. At least an hour. Because otherwise I'll never have my size 2's for my second monkey! Now I'm going to fill out this survey thing, because I think it'll be a great way to get to know some of my friends in blogland. Feel free to feel tagged and fill it out!

Tag You're it

Here's how you play: Once you've been tagged you have to write a blog with 10 Weird, random, facts, habits or goals about yourself, at the end choose someone to be tagged so you can read their answers! (I just tagged you all!)

Let's see.....

1.) I listen to really hard rock music when no one is around.

2.) I check my blogs and forums obsessively.

3.) I love taking pictures.

4.) I want a baby more than anything else in the world.

5.) I'm not nearly as social around new people as I seem on Ravelry.

6.) I'm add, and get bored very very easily.

7.) I have a bad ankle and am really really really glad I don't have to have surgery on it.

8.) I love to be organized... but hate organizing things.

9.) I'm a phone-a-holic. I'm on the phone ALL THE TIME.

10.) I like weird shows, like Buffy and Angel, and Moonlight, that have a vampire theme, and I'm not really sure why. I always have.

So, consider yourself tagged, and have a great day!

I love the socks! The color is great, very nice.

I thought I was the only one obsessively checking ravelry forums and blogs, lmao, glad I'm not alone!

I'll do a 10 weird things on my blog when I come up with them.

Kewl socks! Interesting facts. should I do the 10 weird random things so that it will distract from the fact that there are no sock photos on there? Yes, I think I shall!
