Happy Freaking Holidays

I need more time. One more day, maybe two. If only I didn't have to work, all would be fine and good. I leave tomorrow for a midwest extravaganza - Cleveland, Ohio for 3 days, Chicago for 3 days, then back home in time for Christmas. Rogue has been shelved until after the holidays, and I am plugging away on my Bane Socks, so called because they are the bane of my existence. Seriously, WHO IN THE HELL HAS SIZE 14 FEET????? And what stupid idiot would actually think it a good idea to knit socks for these monstrous things!?!? I sit there, knitting away, watching TV or drinking hot chocolate, or listening to music, and I catch a glimpse of the feet, the big behemoths out of the corner of my eye, flopping all around the house, in their big ole shoes, stomp, stomp, stomp, and I shudder. I say, over and over and over to myself, I hate you, you big ole feet. Why, oh why did I have to pick you for the gift exchange?!?!?! Damnit.

They are pretty tight, though. Socks that Rock in Moss Agate. Toe-up. A cool and interesting K2P2 row, P row ribbing that is soft, and puffy, and stripy in the best possible-non-pooling way. I really love them. But I hate them, too (mostly because I just simply want to be DONE with them, already - I have Jaywalkers to make!) But I love them.

We had a photo shoot today at work, so Jen will most likely post some model shots of yarn and socks sometime this weekend.

And, just because I have kind of figured out this photo-posting thing, some shots of Kiri, the single most rewarding thing I have knit for myself, ever! Well, that will have to wait, because I can't make the photo posting work anymore.

Happy holidays, everyone
