The good: My HSKS3 kit
I started the bag for my kit today. I'm really excited about it. I had the yarn for it already... Some of it was just scraps, so it took awhile for me to scrap a pattern together. I've ordered yarn and needles, and picked out a pattern for the socks. I've even gotten a couple of extra goodies. I just need to make some stitch markers and I'll have everything. I'd like to post some pictures, but the bag is barely started, and I don't want to ruin the element of surprise.
Both my downstream and upstream partner are excellent. (I even got a sneak peak!)
The bad and the unfinished: My Stupid Socks
In other knitting news: I will most likely frog and never finish my chesire cat socks. I hate striping. If I finish the sock I'm currently working on, I'll never make another. Basically I cannot see the point of finishing. Plus it's rarely very cold in Vegas. I have heavy socks for my coaching when I am outside the whole 2-5 weeks of really miserable weather that we have. And I already have slippers for the house. I rarely wear socks around the house to keep my feet warm, I wear my slippers... All of this babbling = me not ever finish the socks, and I will most likely be frogging them and starting a new pair that I can get really excited about.
