This weekend, I learned…

…there is something to be said about knitting socks on size 5 needles with worsted weight yarn – even if it is only, “Dang! This stuff knits up fast!” ;o)

I cast on for these socks on Wednesday and finished them Saturday:


Yesterday kicked off Socktoberfest – I’ve never participated in this knitalong before, last year at this time I wasn’t knitting socks yet…no wait, I was. Okay I have no idea why I didn’t sign up last year but I did this year. I picked two socks to be my Socktoberfest sockage, the first being Eunny’s Bayerische socks:

…and the second being Falling Leaves:

I cast on for Bayerische this morning and spent most of the day telling RR to quit talking to me, I didn’t care WHO was winning the race! (he actually lied to me at one point and told me Michael W. was in the lead, just to see if I’d look up. I did. Sneaky bastard.) These socks are just a tad complicated to start out, but they get easier after the 2nd repeat (at least, that’s what Eunny says on her site and I’m inclined to believe her because if I don’t I’m going to wind up curled in a ball on the floor surrounded by a tattered skein of periwinkle Lorna’s Laces threatening to stab my own eyes out with my size 0 circs. And whimpering, don’t forget the whimpering. Trust me, it won’t be pretty.)

I haven’t cast on for Falling Leaves yet…if I live through Bayerische those are up next ;o) I lied – Falling Leaves will be my Grey’s knitting – and there’s even a little bit of grey mixed in there with the autumnal colors, bonus!

Oh and the bronchitis is WAY better – I’m on my 2nd round of antibiotics but the cough is finally starting to leave the building. Thank God. Thanks again for all your well-wishes, they helped alot! :o)
