mondays aren't so bad...

when you have to wake up at 4:30 am to be at the airport...which then causes you to be in the office by 5:53 am, you get to leave at 4 pm. which means you just beat the beginning of the height of rush hour traffic. the sun's still out, the birds are still chirping, and the scent of jasmine and roses is in the air. if you are lucky enough, you get to enjoy a bit of knitting outside after a long day of sitting in an office. unfortunately i was too exhausted to knit...but i was able to sit and just relax a bit and took the time to actually SMELL the roses...



i was able to finish socks #1 last friday, i only got to take photos today since this weekend was G and my doubles tennis tournament. we lost, but it was our first tournament ever AND our first time playing doubles as partners so it was a lot of fun. we made it through 4 rounds of tennis in two days, and we were able to figure out what our weaknesses are and will be working on them for the next tournament. it's always easy to know what you are doing wrong, but hard to fix them especially when in the middle of a match.

i digress...



and yes, there really IS two of them.



YAY! i haven't succumbed to second sock syndrome. can i say that i am already addicted to knitting socks? i already have the yarn for 5 more pair. yeah. i say that now, but so far i've only just finished my first pair using worsted weight, and started my second...in worsted weight. i am putting off using REAL sock yarn for the next pair, when i am a bit more confident in my sock making skills, perhaps then size 1 needles won't seem so daunting.

Yay! Another sock knitter! Once you use the regular sock yarn, you'll never go back. It makes a much more comfortable sock than worsted. Try it out!

Everybody told me that when you knit a first pair of sock ..the zize of sock will be too big or too small..For your socks, it is perfect size for your foots!!
