Its all true, the boogie girl is real, and you've found her. She knits, sews, spins, does pottery and writes it all down in this blog.

Week of WIP's part 2
aka - I love Husbeast
Husbeast socks was the first thing I cast on. Yes, I've felt guilty that those awful tan socks have taken forever and the poor beast is walking around on these:
Making socks for feet like these is not easy either. But I'm up to the challenge as long as I can do a sock pattern and color that won't SUCK the life out of me. Tan was sucking me dry of every creative cell. I'm thinking of frogging the one finished sock because I can't imagine ever gathering enough life force to finish them. Seriously, if I started in on them again husbeast might come home to find a pile of dust and a half finished tan sock sitting in my chair.
In order to save my life, I set tan aside. I picked the Black tweed yarn and this sock pattern to start a new pair of husbeast socks. Ahhh, much better. I feel so much better working on these. So much so that I got quite a bit done:
I've only been working on these here and there, they are my take along small project afterall. I just haven't been anywhere lately. I probably will work on them a bit more as they are cool and small in my lap as opposed to other hot wooly knits.
I wanted to thank you all for your kind thoughts and words about Kayla and my vacation to nausea land. Kayla is doing much better, she's actually healing up and I'm far less worried about her. Me, I'm trying not to whine but if it's hot I don't think I'll be feeling well. I'll survive and I'm just hoping for SNOW at this point. It could happen.
