I did it. I'm in. I am committed (or should be committed maybe?) I am officially in Sock Madness. This crazy Knit-along will start on the 10th of March and will match me up against other knitters in a sock knitting tournament, a nutty knitting alternative to March Madness I guess. They supply the patterns and the first one to complete their sock in a given bracket moves on - or something like that. We are supposed to be matched up according to ability, which is good cause I haven't made that many pairs of socks yet. I must confess that I signed up in a moment of weakness, encouraged by Jo and sent the e-mail as I gazed at the very full bag of sock yarn on my shelf. "Would be good to get some of those knitted up!" And there you go. I was in.
Insanity. I have so many other projects I want to start, and with the Spanish Christening blanket (I can no longer call it a shawl) almost done I am eyeing new projects like a squirrel darting back and forth on the fence trying to decide between the apricot tree, the peach tree or the plums. (dang squirrels get ours every year). What's a knitter to do? So, in the meantime;
- I am finishing said blanket,
- I need to write up the pattern for the Pine Forest Scarf,
- I want to work up the pattern for the as yet un-named narrower version
- And I need to decide on something to knit.
