The Sock Queue

I always have this mental queue (as well as my supersized Rav queue) of what is up next. Normally there is a sock queue, a bigger project (sweater or that sort of thing) and a lace queue.

I have nearly finished the second of these. In fact I think tomorrow morning will see me weaving in some ends.


I thought you might be interested in seeing what is "up next" in my sock queue. I haven't picked a pattern yet, because I will need something that you can knit with a busy yarn. The first time I knit a blank, I didn't like it because the yarn is wormy from being dyed while knit and unwound, but luckily, once washed the yarn is normal, so I'm going to do the old "leap of faith" thing and knit up this bad boy.


This weekend we are having family visiting, but NEXT WEEK!!! There will be no kids here Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday!! Don't get me wrong, I love these guys, but I am looking forward to a break from having hooligans hanging from the rafters next week. I'm already making a list of stuff I'll do. Recaulking our bathroom shower is number one.

Oh yes, I am a party animal.


  1. I can not wait to see how the socks turn out the blank came out great nice colors too.

  2. How about Harrie Tweed? It's a simple pattern that shouldn't fight with the yarn. I'm another one looking forward to seeing how it knits up.

    Yay for no kids!


  3. I am loving the sock blank. When you mentioned that on the cast a few weeks ago, I wonder what it looked like, and now I know! :)


I can't figure out how to respond to comments because blogger is funkay. Thanks for leaving one anyway!
