Ahh! 19 hours left!

And again, I've not been signed up for the Knitting Olympics, but I still want to finish some socks. I've still got a whole bunch to do. One sock for Kristy (very long feet) is done and the other just got back on the needles because they were being used for the first Broadripple. There are about 6 repeats out of twelve. Then I have to make the heel flap, turn the heel, and work the foot until there are 15 repeats. Fifteen, man. I can do it. And if I do, then I will also cast on for the second Broadripple. I hope all of your knitting goes very well.
Until next time.

Hello. My name's Elizabeth and I suffer from SSS.

I suffer from Second Sock Syndrome. Pretty much means I don't knit the second sock in a pair for quite a while. See below.

Today I've been working on and off on the first sock from the Broadripple pattern from Knitty. The link is over in the sidebar. I've almost got the gusset finished. But I didn't knit seven inches from the cast on as recommended. I only knit about four.

And even though I'm not participating in the Knitting Olympics I'm trying to finish two pairs of socks before they end. One of which has been half finished since before Christmas and the pair was supposed to be a gift for one of my very best friends, Kristy. I got bored with that pattern because her feet are about a literal foot long. She's 6'1". Yeah, I know. The pattern is Holly's Socks over in the sidebar.

I think my mom ordered the family camera this afternoon, so look foreward to pictures. I'm only worried that my sister will break it. Or lose it. Or let a friend borrow it. I hope that she is only allowed to use it under the supervision of my or my mom. My dad wouldn't stop her from doing any thing. He's such a softie.
Any way, I'm off to finish my sock. I wonder if Grey's Anatomy is on tonight. I hope so.

To Whom It Concerns : The Beginning

Hello, my fellow bloggers.
I've toyed around with blogs and websites in the past but I never really became too consistant. Partially because I couldn't ever post pictures due to the lack of digital camera. It turns out that my family is getting a digital camera from a Rewards point system that my dad belongs to with his work. He's a Wrecker Service/Auto shop. I'm very happy to finally be getting a camera.
Well, since I didn't get around to signing up for the sockpaloooza at The Blue Blog (links to come when I have time) I'm going to knit or attempt to knit the Tech Guy socks. My first real attempt at short rows...I'm a bit nervous.
And today I also bought the Yarn Harlot's At Knit's End book. I'm already half way through it. I think it's really cute and a nice book to have.

Happy Knitting, and pictures to come!
