too many socks - as if!

I am a bit late with my post this week, but it has been crazy at work. I had huge writing deadlines, the stock market is horrendous, people are calling me every day wanting me to tell them all will be well with the world - I had a man tell me I should work for free because our company's stock is down so much! As if - if I worked for free I certainly would not be listening to him yell and curse at me. I just come home and go to my knitting. Knitting is so undemanding - it's a happy place! It seemed for a while that knitting was at a stand-still, however, lately it is happening with the knitting scene around here.

I finished a pair of socks that I found mentioned on Sarah's blog. I used a Koigu yarn I had in my stash. It is not their painters merino - it is something else and I did not enjoy knitting with it. I had problems with the first sock but the second one was a breeze. In the end I have to say that they are classy looking socks and I am happy with them. The Babe quipped that pretty soon I will need to open a shop selling my socks because he thinks I can't possibly wear all the socks I knit. Snort! Can you imagine what I would have to charge for a pair of socks to make money on them? Obviously he has no idea!

As you can see by the photo, I was too lazy to get out of bed to photograph these socks. But who can blame me; I got the new Toast catalogue in the mail and I love the photography. Toast is a significant source of inspiration for me photographically.

Happy weekend everyone!
