Where did the month go? I realized I had better hurry and post the last of my pictures for Project Spectrum.
But before I share some orange and yellow things… I’m taking down this yellow skin/theme. I enjoyed using it for April, and particularly liked the three-column layout. But it just isn’t **me.** I’ve restored [...]
(Sigh… I had over half of this post typed out, then my mouse went bonkers and I lost the post!)
Quick Sockettes update: I have just half of a cuff to go… I aim to finish tonight and post pictures tomorrow.
Yarnover 2006: Mom and I went through all the colorful, fiber goodness this morning. I know [...]

2005 wasn’t a sock year for me at all. I made a pair of Grumperina’s Jaywalker socks with 100% acrylic worsted weight. We shall never speak of it again. I also bought two skeins of Cascade Fixation; I originally wanted Margarita 9904, but they were sold out, so I got Pansy 9464 instead. I was deeply [...]
Madder Ribbed Update: I’m experiencing that sneaking feeling that I will be frogging these. I’m keeping them in their travel bag for a couple more days until I take a good look and make my decision.
A few days ago I said I was going to take a break from socks… at the time I typed [...]

Thanks again for the nice comments on my Sixth Sense Socks! : ) They were fun to knit! (And in full disclosure, I’m wearing them for the second day in a row.)
Celia asked about the sock blockers I used (you can see them in the first picture in yesterday’s post): “Question, are the sock blockers [...]
As I posted earlier, I finished this pair early yesterday morning. I’m wearing them now as I type!
Six Sox KAL update: I finished the Sixth Sense socks this morning! I tried a couple of quick snapshots but they were terrible. I haven’t been having much luck with pictures lately… I’ll try again later today.
I’m not going to start a new pair of socks just yet. I do have the orange Madder Ribbed [...]
kat knits is holding this fun contest/meme: Name 5 places (other than home and LYS) where you’ve knitted.
It’s been fun reading all the various answers. Here’s mine!
At Mall of America, while mall-walking. Walking around the Highland Park neighborhood. While traveling (Wellesley in my old dorm!!, [...]
One good thing from the ’80s decade: Q*bert. If you played video console games or home video games (Atari, Colecovision, etc), you most likely played this game. I absolutely loved Q*bert, and it always pops into my mind whenever I see tumbling blocks, slanted squares, or cube-type patterns. It was also a colorful, maybe even [...]

So… I have been meaning to blog about this, but haven’t had a chance yet. I signed up for not one but two secret pal exchanges.
I’ve always enjoyed reading about the various Secret Pal going-ons and generosity over the past two years. But because I’m such a perfectionist, I never could open my blog to [...]
