Cheerful Socks

It's funny how many knitting blogs have entries that say, "I've been a bad blogger lately." That's just what people need; to feel guilty about not doing something that they're only doing for fun anyway. So, I refuse to lament missing Booking Through Thursday or Eye Candy Friday this week again. I have this credo about work: it's that I'd rather be a pretty good teacher and a really good mom than the other way around. I guess I feel that way about a lot of things. If you're really good at something it stands to reason that something else is probably being overlooked regularly. Blogging seems like one of those things that should get overlooked pretty quickly when life gets too busy. Now, knitting itself, that's another story. It's so relaxing to knit that I need to do it. My favorite time to knit is when I get back from running at 6:00 A.M. and I have almost an hour before I have to start getting ready for work. I also love knitting when everyone else has gone to bed although I should be in bed too considering how early I have to get up. During those little snippets of knitting time this week, I finished knitting my fixation socks. It's still so hot that even cotton socks are too warm to consider wearing, but I do like them and think they are very cheerful just to have lying around.

The socks are great! They make me think of cotton candy, peppermint and all the fun things of childhood.

I can almost feel the ahhhhhh relaxing from the day at the beach photos. Lovely yarn too!

I also hate being between projects and the deciding phase, but I still procrastinate and have multiple projects on the needles.

The cat bed is lovely too!

I love your socks. They're so bright and cheery. I hope it cools off enough soon so you can wear them. :-)

You are very right. We shouldn't get stresses about knitting or blogging. After all, we do them for fun!

I love the socks by the way.
