Knitting for Sanity

Some people knit for charity. Over the weekend I knitted for sanity. And my STR sock got completed because of it.

We won't go completely into why I was going insane but I will say that it had to with a doo doo deposit of the canine variety that took place for about the 19th time in my spare bedroom. And let me tell you, when I get mad, I take it out on everyone. So, in an effort to save Father's Day from the wrath of Mom, I put Beethovan on and settled in the chair with the sock and began the cool down process. The colors in this photo are not true but you get the idea. It's definitely a cool sock that will be very toasty on the foot when the weather chills down... which is NOT today.

I started the other koigu baby sock when I completed this one. There is no rhyme or reason for my knitting. I was going to start Colin's sweater but I couldn't find my # 3 needles. So it's off to the LYS today at lunch time.

If anyone decides to make that little Baby Pea Pod sweater shown in the newest Interweave Knits, let me know. I still can't get the pattern in the ribbing. I've decided to do a Sirdar pattern for Colin until I can get that one figured out. Then I'm going to do something for him from here:
Mission Falls - Wee Knits Pattern Book Really cute stuff.

Ok.. I have to go work for a living. Ugh. I just want to knit.
