Another sock post

My goodness, tired of me posting about my new fetish yet? No!? Good.

So, now that I have both of the girls sporting a new pair of handmade socks, I thought that it was time to get to work on a pair for me. Last night I casted on for the Broadripple socks from Knitty and today began to work on them. The pattern is really easy and is actually becoming a quick knit for me. Yarn I'm using (which for future reference I will never use this yarn ever again for anything I decide to make, ok, I lie, maybe something summer-y for myself in Miami Beach) is Moda Dea Sassy Stripes in Crayon. While at first I wasn't to happy with the colorway, it's starting to grow on me.

Broadripple WIP

I spent probably about an hour total so far working on this. I can't just sit down and knit for hours because I have things like 2 kids, laundry, dishes, lunches/snacks/dinners to make, playtime, etc. Trust me, I wish that I could just sit down with my project and knit till my hearts content with no interruptions.

Thank you for stopping by! The yarn is ok, I'm just not to crazy about the colors, and yes, it is going by pretty quick.
