Exactly Where Did the Weekend Go?

The finished Snowdrop Socks in the unfortunate Noro Kureyon Sock. The photo is shot in a mirror, (a rather old mirror), that's why the shot looks a little foggy.

Pattern: Snowdrop Socks (that is a Ravelry link) by Sara Morris Yarn: Noro Kureyon Sock Needles: Knitpick's US 1½ / 2.5 mm. Started: April 16, 2008 Completed: April 30, 2008. Note: See my previous posts for my opinion of the Noro. The finished sock does not hold it's shape, nor is is nearly as soft and shiny as some of my other pairs of socks.

Pattern: Waterfall (also a Ravelry link) by Babs Ausherman Yarn: Fiber Denn Sock Yarn in the Alexandrite colorway Needles: Knitpick's US 3 / 3.25 mm. Started: April 9, 2008 Completed: May 1, 2008. Note: It actually only took one day to finish a sock, it just sat on the sidelines while I was messing with that darn Noro.

This sweater is Dancing with the Devil and a perfect, thoughtless migraine day knit. I'm using the Cascade 200 tweed and it is making a perfect fabric.

I also cast on the Hippy Ripply Retro socks from Sock Madness (Is it round 4 or 5? I'm not sure), in some Vesper self-striping, the Tainted Love Colorway. I think this was a present from Amy and I can't say how much I love this yarn. Seems the pictures have gone missing. You can see the yarn on my Ravelry page here. Otherwise - I'll post some progress pictures later.

We had two Lacrosse games on Saturday morning and the Teen's team won the first by a hair and the second quite handily. (5/4 and 13/1). The Varsity team did not fare so well on Saturday afternoon, but they are just going to have to prove themselves in the playoffs. Gma and I went to see Ironman on Saturday night. Love, love, LOVE! Robert Downey Jr. Very happy to see him come out on this side of the drugs. The flick was what it was, but they did it all very cleverly and we enjoyed the film immensely.

Time to hit the rack.

I'm glad you've finished with the Noro socks, now you never have to knit with it ever again! Good thing out of the way. The socks do look pretty though! Sorry you hated working with the yarn so much : )
But they're pretty - the Noro socks!
I hope this is a migraine-free day??

The Noro socks ARE pretty. But after your experience with the stuff, I'm SO glad I haven't bought any.
The Noro socks are quite pretty, but I'm taking your advice and keeping myself from adding to my own personal sock madness by planning Noro socks ;)
I can't believe you got your Noro socks to match! Amazing! So pretty...pity about everything else.
Both socks are pretty. I still like the Noro yarn. It's a bit more rustic than most people care for, but oh, the colors are like no other.
Your Snowdrops are gorgeous!
Last time I was in a yarn store I saw someone knitting socks with Noro. They were so pretty and I just had to touch them. Hum, not so nice. Maybe they will soften after a wash?

How are the puppies?

I love the Rowing Home you posted on Friday. I'll bet that is soft.
