Yep the sock is done, not perfect, but DONE. Now to do the mate. The heel ended up to be done in a kitchner stitch with a mistake or two. Not to fear it is done and will not be frogged again EVER !!!!
To be continued on the other foot.

Yipes !!!

To heel or not to heel

Froggin again and again, don't know if this purple sock will ever be complete. Perhaps it's time to begin a new pair...............and then the purple haze will just remain a haze---- to be a "work of art", a memory of fun at the lake. Perhaps this is all a dream from the hoze zone. Well another day knit one purl two.

p.s. SK2P is slip one, knit2, pass slip stitch over !!! yeeeeha....................

Sock it to me

Today is the day for froggin, took out the heel of me purple haze sock and will hopefully recreate it tomorrow. Working on preemie hats for S.F. Kaiser nursery. I love the "Tiny preemie short row hat" very portable and nothing to remember. Wish I could sit and knit all day long. Work is becoming stressful and I have decided to take a day each week to devote to what "I" need,, wether it's to do laundry, create or sleep. I've got to do that or I think I will go nuts.

jeepers perhaps I already am, nuts that

knitters block or am i stuck in a wad of yarn??

I have so much I want to do, but no time to do it. I need to have a notebook near for when ideas come to my mind. Wish the computer was with me all the time. Ideas for knitting and now I am starting to get new thoughts about how to design stitches. Never thought i'd look in that direction.

endless in purple haze

So now it's done the purple sock is complete. too big, but complete. Now to determine where to adjust and rip or live with it......................I will think on this some more. Perhaps I will keep it as the "lone sock" a work of art, a reflection, a strange coaster. Who knows.
To be continued....................

Where is it??

Seems like it's "overload" so much to little time. Perhaps I will take up knitting in my sleep. Need to organize everything. Hopefully I will learn more on "Ravelry" and get it together.
