It's here!

It's here!!!!!!! I so loved the first book Sensational Knitted Socks I just couldn't go without this one too! The author is from my home state. I wish she would have a book signing or something so I could meet her. That would be way cool! I've only done a quick glance through, but all ready see several that I want to give a whirl. Hopefully this will get me over my knitting slump. Now to decide.......which one to do!

I'm out of the a cheerleader

Well, I didn't make it past the first round. The pattern was released on a Saturday morning and unfortunately I had a busy weekend and wasn't able to get started knitting. By the time I got a chance to start, my group had filled it's 16 spots of the first to finish. While I like the pattern for this sock, I've not like the way it has knitted up for me. It has a striping pattern to it and my round to round join looks awful in my opinion. I also wanted to carry the unused yarn up the few rows so I wouldn't have lots of ends to weave in and I'm not happy with how that looks either. This sock also has a short row heel and while I think it may have come out okay, I think what is going to happen is a major frogging expedition and I'll save the yarn for some other socks.
