Toasty Socks!

Wow, my time spent online has been sparse other than the necessary things such as checking accounts and email, etc. but overall, it seems that when I have time to spare on the net I wind up at Ravelry which is undoubtedly addictive. There are so many groups and one can make lots of friends and discover answers to knit or crochet questions, patterns, yarns, and just about anything else you can think's a cornucopia of fiberly plenty and I love it. That being said, I must say I've still been doing my fair share of knitting such as these 2 completed pair of socks for my tootsies.

I'm also finishing up another pair of Sockotta socks one at a time on dpns this time. I'm rounding the toe area on my first one so when it's finished I'll post a pic here as well. I have so darned much sock yarn that it's just as well that I love knitting socks, right? I think my next ones may be knit using some Lorna's Laces that I just got in a trade at: where else, but Ravelry in lovely shades, of off white, light purple, dark purple, and black.

On another note, DH and I are going a little bit crazy because we've decided to put our house up for sale and move to a smaller place and you know what that means. People coming through on a moment's notice, ergo, living in a 'fish bowl' so to speak, to say nothing of taking a look around at all the 'stuff' we've accumulated over the course of time and figuring out what to do with it, I admit, I've parted with some of my yarn stash, but I can only get rid of so much....a girl's gotta' keep what a girl's gotta' keep and all of you fiber fans out there know of whence I speak.

I share with you here , yet another picture of the Bunny Boy who never tires of having his picture taken......I think in this one he's saying something like, "hey, is it safe to come out yet, or is Mommy going to snuggle me some more"?

P.S. Check out the weight loss ticker at the bottom of my blog......I'm teetering on 30 pounds lost so far. Ohh, it's been so long in coming and here's to the next 30!

Your socks look great. Whats all the details about the move?? I don't envy you having to keep your house "showable". LOL! No one would EVER buy mine!! LOL

Isn't Ravelry a big black hole...but what a fun way to spend hours and hours of time!

Love the Kitty photos....

I hope your move goes smoothly and you enjoy your new home as much.
