Watch 5 Episodes and Call Me in the Morning




I spent the weekend sick and I think I have found a new cure all for the common cold. Watch half of season one and start season two of JAG. I was a big fan of the show when it was on and I was very excited when they started coming out with the seasons on DVD. I don't think it really helped but it did keep me company while I sat in the recliner feeling miserable. If looking at David James Elliott in a Navy uniform doesn't help than you need to go to the hospital because you are REALLY sick.





If the JAG cure all didn't work finishing a pair of socks has to help right???? I finished my Seacoast Socks on Sunday. (I would have posted earlier but I was sick and then the Mouse thief was just too cute). The colorway was Sunrise and I used a basket weave pattern. I had quite a bit of yarn left over but I never make my socks very high. I prefer ankle socks for the most part. I really liked this yarn. It is very soft and I love the colors. I will admit it tends to split but the plusses outweigh the negatives to me for the this one.





And if the other two don't help new yarn can cure anything. This is what I recently got from the Simply Socks Yarn Company. I got Lorna's Laces in Hawaii and some Claudia Hand Painted in Red Wagon. The other Lorna's Laces is Daffodil from yarn4socks. I am still trying to figure out if I should use one of these for the Six Sox Knitalong or use something else. Guess I will figure that out pretty soon though.

Beautiful sock yarn. I just bought myself some Claudia's today and can't wait to knit with it. I am still fondling it though!

Sounds like we had a similar weekend - I am still killing a tree's worth of tissue.

I just finished one sock out of that Hawaii colorway - it knits up just beautifully.

My first thought upon seeing thesocks was 'bubblegum'. The colourway reminds me of that.
Your new yarn looks delicious and I look forward to seeing it knitup.
