yeehaw!

you will all be glad to know:
I DID IT!
i finished my first ever complete pair of socks!!
woohoo! and, if i do say so myself - they look good!










the yarn pooled in one and seemed totally random on the other - i dunno.... i completely frogged the first sock i had pictured. i just couldn't see beyond that narrow spot. i used a totally different pattern and liked it much more, anyhow. it was toe-up.

so - they are currently on their way to their new home. my partner doesn't have a blog... i hope they fit.

the moving is still in progress - thank goodness there's no deadline! sadly, i totally avoided working on the other house this weekend. well, friday i did get the texturing done in the living room... i will be taping it off and such over the week during the day when it is just the little one and i.

guess what my goofy self went a did! i entered the "gwape wool" yarn in the fair!
it got 3rd place.... not bad - i had high hopes, but hey, really, considering i've only been spinning for a year (remember, Hilary was my birthday gift last year)--- and my birthday approaches again... just 8 days away - 30-here i come. seems weird. i'd say i don't feel thirty.. but what is it supposed to feel like?

alrighty, i must get - now that the sock is done, i have a wedding gift to make for this saturday.
i've tripled up on a tobacco colored chenille with an N hook working a throw in the diagonal box-stitch pattern.

The socks look great. I sent yours out on Thursday and you should be getting them soon, if not already. Let me know when you get them. I hope you like them.

Congratulations on your FIRST pair of socks! I haven't done that yet, so you're ahead of me! They look great!

And hey, listen...30 doesn't feel any different than your last day as 29! REALLY! ha ha! You probably still feel you're some younger age anyway. I'm a 20-something year old trapped in a 37 year old body! (I haven't decided what age in the 20's I feel like. But I definitely don't feel like I'll be 40 (ACK!) in 3 years!)
