"I hate waiting."

As you might guess, I'm a bit impatient. I had hoped that picking up a pair of knitting needles would help me learn about the virtue of patience... but it seems I just want my projects to go along as quickly as possible.

where toe up takes a whole different meaning

The job I used to have... as a youth treatment counselor... updated my slang
so that I'm only about 5 yrs uncool instead of a whole 10. Being toe up is not usually a compliment, but in the knitterly slang version

I'll be TOE UP anytime! Last Saturday, Stacey, her sister Whitney, and I took part I of II of the toe up/magic loop sock class. I see socks in an entirely new way.

I have not been able to hold onto my RULE OF FOUR. In guilt knitting, I started the teddy bear all in one that a friend wanted for her soon to be second son. You see above the start of a leg.

In the time that I have not been spending blogging, I've been busy doing schoolwork, internship, and hosting my good friend's annual visit back to Denver. Lots of blog ideas in my head, but when i actually had time to sit down to write, they all disappeared.

Coming soon to this blog: all my purchases at the String sale, and how I used my gift certificate at A Knitted Peace, (and what I bought this year at the WEBS annual sale).

Hee hee - that teddy bear outfit is going to be CUTE.

I love toe-up socks! Do you like knitting socks that way after the class?

I have a little notebook in my bag that I try to remember to jot down blog ideas in, because I have that same problem.

I noticed the WEBS sale kicked off, how tempting! I believe the sale goes until May 31st so we all have a little time to organize our lists.
