Sexy Socks!

So...I haven't posted in a bit (doing a whole lot of nothing tires me out). But here are some lovely pictues for you!

I finished my first Sidewinder! And in a moment of weakness, I told my mom about the secret Sidewinders and gave her the first one:

That's my foot modeling it, not hers.

Then I did some work on MS3. I'm not a slow knitter, but I still haven't finished Clue 1. I did start a week late, but I'm just being lazy about it and not doing it (plus I am one stitch off so I'm figuring out how to add it back in without ripping anything out. I think I'll just skip 1 decrease)

Me being all giggly and holding up my knitting

My progress so far (yeah, you can laugh at how crappy it looks in this lighting)

And finally, my multicolored Jaywalker!

You know how they say to do toe-up socks because then you can try it on? Well I keep trying this one on anyway and it's cuff-down. So haha toe-uppers (even though I think I'll do my next pair toe-up so I can try it on for real).

After knitting it through 6 movies (in Transformers every time it got really loud and scary I just concentrated on my knitting!), I finally took my Lelah off the needles to try it on (I don't remember if I got gauge or not and I followed the pattern for a large) and it fit! I still need to lose a few pounds though to make it look better. It will be cute anyway, so I'm excited.

Maybe by my next post I will have finished Clue 1 (I only have 1 row left) and my Jaywalker and possibly started the 2nd Sidewinder. Or I could have nothing done. Who knows!

Love, A.Co

Thanks nona! Marm, if you keep asking you may never get #2! I will keep it all to myself...just kidding!
