Here's a quick shot of the first sock of 2009 (notice I didn't say the first PAIR of socks). I've already cast on for the second sock, and hope to finish it sometime this week, or maybe this weekend. (Garger Rib Stitch in STR Lettuce Knit colorway, medium weight - for all you fiber folks). I love the foot of the sock. The striping is really pretty nice there.
We've been busy as a family, having strep throat (youngest), hosting birthday parties (for the youngest, work done by the elders), working overtime (again the eldest - hint, that's me), taking mid-terms (eldest child), playing volleyball (the eldest - we started our league on Saturday night), and just generally being tired (all of us). I'm pretty sure I'm one of those fair-weather people who favor warmer weather. Although, winter is just great for knitting, and showing off all of one's hand-made items!
Today's bright spot was sponsored by my hubby. He brought home a surprise today - Wii Fit! I'll let you know how we like it. So far, it's a little slow, but then again, I'm a little hyper. The yoga will do well by me, I'm sure. By a little slow, please don't think that I'm in great shape. I'm just used to more contact sports and fast paced things when I exercise. The Wii Fit will be good for muscle toning, which I so desperately need!
Well, knit on my friends! I've been enjoying your posts, sleepily gazing at your gorgeous projects (I usually read blogs early in the morning or late at night). You all inspire me to keep on going, even when my head hits the pillow! Lettuce knit onward and upward! :)
