Finally - knitting content

I'm done with the third second sock! I am so happy with how the stripes lined up, it's just about perfect.

(ignore the cankles)

I am way to incompetent lazy to kitchner the toes, so I did a three needle bind-off, but other than that I tried to follow the directions faithfully. As usual, Kathy's pattern is spot on. I can't wait to find just the right yarn for her Odessa cap. (Sorry - I am too tired to find the link right now, it's on magknits.com)

Great socks Kris! You must have some serious knitting mojo going on--I can't believe how well those stripes match. ;-)

Nice Socks! Now that compliment was genuine, but some how feels tarnished due to commercials for khaki pants? Strange world/mind.

What I don't get is how you can start and stop - or in your words knit three socks - and work with different balls, but still end up with great looking socks with nicely matched pattern. Blows my mind. But then again, as a non-knitter much seems foreign to me.

What does that make me if I don't knit but look at a knitting blog? Can knitters have groupies or fan clubs? Should I refer to you as a knitter or would Needle Idol or Knit Star be better? hmm...

Also what is a "cankle"? I am assuming that was some form of self criticism for your ankles? If I am correct, I would respond with - knock it off! We are who we are and all is well.

I think getting comments to a blog is much like getting a personal note or a letter in the mail. There is a little ego stroking involved, but more so it is just feeling part of something and connected to someone else. I jump for joy when I get something in the mail from someone else. So enjoy the comments, leave many yourself, and don't think twice about craving the smile they can bring.

Cheers,
