Knitter Down!!!

I actually have a bruise on my right index finger from the speed knitting I did this weekend.

BUT I also don't have anymore knitting to do on this:

Thank you. Thank you. Oh, you're so kind. Really, I didn't expect all this applause. How sweet. Thank you. Oh, thank you.


While my finger heals from its trauma, this is what I've been doing lately.

I played with this all last winter, too, and isn't it nice to know that my mental level is low enough to be entertained by something so simple not one but two years in a row?

Go on. You know you want to.

Meanwhile, my brother should be opening a package sometime soon that contains these:
One sock (with previously-unknown-to-me heel that I sorta made up as I went along)
Half a birthday card
Half an envelope

Because when I go halfway I really go halfway.

The other sock will get started when I get a confirmation of fit for this sock. Because I was making up the heel, I didn't know how much room it would add to the sock, and what I got looked like the world's longest sock to me, though I'm pretty sure there were some rifts in the yarn-space-continuem there because it actually measured what I think it should have. So we'll see.

No, really. Your karma is so enhanced by the evil sock.
I hope your brother appreciates you. I suspect he does.

Hehe. I also found that last year. My son has been playing with it off and on since. Check out the gallery. There are some great flakes people have made. Some have managed to get words in it and everything. Pretty spiffy.

Okay, okay. I'll check the mail already....

Hey! A birthday present from Amie! It's a SOCK! And it FITS! COOL!

Thanks, sis.

I LOVE the snowflakes! They're almost as much fun as handmade ones, and easier on the hands. And such a wonderful procrastination measure...Ah, well.
I wish your poor finger a speedy recovery :)
