It was pretty disappointing to realize that I can't complete my Frost Flowers and Leaves shawl until I get more yarn. I'm not really expecting the yarn I ordered to be the same dye lot as the rest of the shawl and Jim pointed out that I can at least have all the edging knit from the same dye lot. I think this is a smart idea. It puts an element of design around a necessity. But it does mean that I may have to rip out what I've done on the edging so far.

I consoled myself this weekend by knitting a sock.

And playing with my flying dog.

That's two FOs for you: a finished object and a flying object! Ha ha! I'm SOOoooo funny. :p

    Hee hee hee. Works for me.

  2. FO's hahahahaha

    Sorry about the edging. I've been there before and it's not fun. Just start knitting it again as soon as you rip (if you do have to rip) so you don't lose interest.

    Your sock is gorgeous! I love those colors. What yarn did you use??

  3. That sock is very cute. What kind of yarn did you use?

  4. Knitting quick fix. Gotta love it. I knew there was another good reason for knitting socks other than covering your feet.

  5. you totally need a face shot of Dexter flying!

    That Jim guy is brilliant isn't he? I'm sure it will work out great, this is you we are talking about after all!

  6. Great picture of Dexter! I am imagining a VERY intense look on his face.

    I, too, would like to know what sock yarn you used. It's really pretty.
