Finally Socks

It seemed to take forever for these socks. First of all, it was the first pair I ever did two at a time using two sets of dp's. I made the mistake of cutting the yarn every time I started work on the second sock instead of separating the yarn into two balls to start. So that was a mistake that created a lot of unnecessary loose ends to weave in at the end. Lesson learned. It was nice to have a pair of socks at the end of my knitting but I have to say that I may go back to one at a time. These were made using Tofutsie yarn available here:
Victoria's House of Needleart

I have misplaced my blue trellis and vine wrap. I spent about an hour looking for it the other day and I'm just sick that I mgiht have accidently left it somewhere. It's the perfect wrap for cool nights at the beach with a white shirt and jeans. So tonight I will go through some boxes of winter clothes (I can't believe I would have put it away) and tear apart a few closets in search of it.

I am STILL plugging away at the lace shawl. Every night I have to fight with myself to work on it and not start something new. I know for a fact that I won't finish it before I do start something new but the game now is to see how long I can last before I do it.

I've watched the last two edisodes of "Saving Grace" with Holly Hunter. There was so much hype about that show and I have to say that I'm sort of up in the air with it. I can't decide whether I like it or hate it. I really like Holly Hunter. But if push came to shove, I think I'd have to say ... two thumbs down. It's not that I don't like the whole fantasy angel thing. I just think the writing is below average.

I think it's time to get some work done. But I'd love to go home and knit.

note added later: I finally got Colin's chest measurement. It's looking bad for the pink lace shawl!

I hope you find it! I would be sick, also. :( Why didn't you knit from either end of the ball when you were working on your 2 at a time socks!? Just curious!!

Hope you find it! Sounds like the lace is taking a back seat!
