~ 2 on 2 ~

Pretty snazzy title, huh?! Well, what it means is.....I'm knitting 2 socks on 2 needles ~ actually circs. I'm knitting baby socks with some lovely yarn I found. I'm using Debbie Bliss' Baby Knits for beginners book. They are called "two needle socks" that are seamed when done. I figured that it would be just as easy to knit both of them at the same time, especially since I'm using variegated yarn, and then I'll be done quicker. No one sock syndrome for me. LOL

I've been busy ~ not sure where the time has gone on the weekend, but am wondering why the week is creeping by. I should be grateful for the slow pace though ~ it will allow for more time to simply be and enjoy the pleasures of my life. I've managed to mail off several swap packages, work extra hours for my pt job ~ I'll be leaving soon for the other one (extra moola for my new addiction ;D), I'm planning and organizing for my trip and I've started 2 new projects. Both are really quick and small so that I can still finish off my footie. Speaking of my footie ~ I'm at the toe shaping. Yeah me! This is truly a new experience for me. I will actually finish something for myself. My 2 new WIPs are the above mentioned socks and a dishcloth for my....oops its a secret. ;D I will start a new dishcloth tonight using the lovely yellow yarn I received in the L2KD exchange. I'll post more on that later.

Oh I almost forgot ~ I finished my stitch markers. I even managed to make extras which I did send one w/my dishcloth swap. ;D Unfortunately, my camera is not being very friendly and they didn't come out well. I may still post them that way you will see the finished product though not very clearly. Our swap leader said that making them may be addictive, and I think she was right being that I set out to make about 5 markers and ended with about 15 of them. :D It worked out once I started making them according to what I wanted them to look like. Don't get me wrong, using a pattern or some one's idea is great but for me it wasn't working and the freeform method worked better. It was fun and I look forward to making them again in the future. I even made some for our coffee swap packages ~ but I won't post those until after the packages are in the mail.

Well, I'd better go and get ready for work. Have an awesome day!
