It's about time!

Ever have one of those projects that just DRAGSSSSSSSSS on and on because you simply aren't "into" it? I know you have.........we ALL have those lovely projects. It's not really bad enough to frog all of your hard work but it's just blah and boring and puts you to sleep.

Well, I HAD one of those projects and I finally finished the darn thing today! This pair of socks is B-O-R-I-N-G! I had some extra denim type stuff that I thought would make for good "around the house socks" for someone. So I started them - about 5 friggin months ago! They have been "done" for like a week but it took me even that long to just do the stupid kitchener and weave in the ends.

By the way, I am LOVING the toe up sock method. That's part of the reason I wasn't into finishing these socks. I had started them cuff down and then when I discovered toe ups I didn't even want to finish the cuff downs I had already started! Plus, I hated the yarn. The yarn was ok in general but just not really good to make socks out of. I forgot to knit the cuffs with a smaller size needle on the first one, so I had to do the same on the second one. They are kind of small, they aren't stretchy enough and they just aren't soft, yummy sock yarn.

Enough about what I HATED about this project, let's talk about what I LIKE. What I LIKE about this project is that it's DONE!!!!!

See? Boring. OK - move along..........nothing to see here.

On another note it's my birthday month!! I have been reminding Mr. Man of that almost daily since January 1. So, I want to run a contest and give away 2 skeins of Artyarn Ultramerino for my birthday!! Though, I think my first contest needs to be what should the contest be! Haha!! No, I think I have a good idea of what it is going to be. It's just going to be a fun thing. I'll post it tomorrow so come back to look for it!

I love keeping you all in suspense..............

when is your birthday again? Mine is next Wednesday. I guess I had forgotten that you are a January girl too! Did you tell Mr. Man the idea about making shawl pins? They would be fairly easy for him to make and at one of the shops in Asheville they were selling them for $28.
