Not an Ark. This time.

Seriously, I am starting to develop trenchfoot from standing in the mud at football practices. Imagine how Puck must feel. Especially last night, after two hours of icy rainy football, he has to tie on the skates for a two hour hockey practice. Did I bring him hot chocolate to warm up before hockey? Yes. Did I let him leave hockey practice early, before he collapsed? You bet I did.

A very bright and shiny FO. Pattern: Feather Pluckin' by Erin Vaughan. (Her store is currently closed - but she has a cute, free sock pattern here. Yarn: Yarntini's Mint Mojito Variegated. Needles: 2.5 mm Brittany dpn's. Started: October 2, 2007 Completed: October 15, 2007.
The second Elegance sock is moving along.

See the prettiness I am going to cast on next? This is Fleece Artist Curlylocks and Kid Aran. It is going to become a Lady of the Lake. I blame the Yarn Harlot. See her September 12 blog entry.
It is a deeper red than can possibly be shown on a computer screen with my limited ablities.

The males in my house (that means everybody else but me), are heading out to South Dakota on Thursday for a Pheasant Hunting Expedition, so I will be curled up with movies and knitting this weekend (sigh). But right now, I have to go purchase winter UnderArmour for the pigskin warrior, Puck. Brrrrr.

That red sweater is going to be beautiful. I have to admit that that Yarn Harlot post caught my eye as well, but I didn't do anything about it.

I think you and Puck have a pretty good reason for being tired of all this rain. Wool socks will help, right?
 
Well, you know there are other EP knitters who would happily meet you for coffee and knitting while you're all alone...
 
Oooh, a weekend all to yourself, have a grand time!

And these socks you finished are fabulous! : )
 
Hey, wanna come over and knit with me?! I think we'd have fun!!

I've HAD trenchfoot (thank you for the many life expanding experiences you provided, National Guards). UGH.

Between you and Limedragon, I'm suddenly TWITCHING to knit Elegance socks...
 
Hi there! I left you a Halloween Treat! Go to my blog where you can read about it!!
LOVE your projects!
 
Well, a weekend for yourself is lovely. Great green sock and the red sweater will be wonderful.
 
Poor Puck! Those double practices are murder.

LOVE the red yarns. I can't wait to see the end product, even if the color won't cooperate on the computer.
