Knitting, homework and then more knitting

I’ve been knitting and doing homework and then more knitting.  I have been working on my STR Monsoon socks.  I finished the 1st one and cast off and found the bind off to be too tight for me and have been trying to get the right size crochet hook to achieve the effect I desire.  I hate it so much that I don’t have any fellow knitter’s here in my hometown that I can get to.  I did cast on the second sock and have turned the heel and am meandering my way up my leg.  So I look forward to having a finished pair of socks by Tuesday.  I finally finished my Ms. Lady V tote and got it in the mail so check out my Flickr roll to see the finished pics. 

I get so busy with school that I forget some of my commitments to my crafting.  I have spent the better part of this afternoon going through my bookmarked blogs and finding out what everyone’s been up to.  I love all of the wonderful socks and lace shawls that are posted everywhere.  There are also some wonderful summer tanks some conservative and others just downright sexy.   

My youngest daughter and I have been looking for patterns to sew and knit to enhance our wardrobes and I really need to get on the ball as I have so much fabric and patterns and haven’t even cut anything out yet.  I remembered that I’ve been knitting from my stash   since taking on the challenge of not buying any yarn except sock yarn and since I had signed up to the Petals Collection and BMFA’s STR Clubs I’ve stayed true to my commitment.  The next thing I want to do is began my Christmas knitting for the family. 

Well I have a sock that’s calling my name and a bit more homework so that I continue to feel productive.

    Hi Phyllis: thanks for commenting on my Solstice Slip adaptation.

    Your Monsoons look really good the way you have done them. I followed the pattern for the Inside Outs and liked them once I finished, but a few choice words flew around as I was working on them. See my my blog
