Sixth time is the charm . . .

After starting and ripping apart the lacy, wavy cuff five times, I have finally made some progress on these Cowboy Slipper Socks made from Bison Wool. I am knitting these for my mother for Christmas. The Bison Wool is super warm and soft, and I wouldn't mind keeping them for myself . . . but that is not the proper holiday spirit.

Oh, and that box on the floor in the first photo, is the box of work I brought home this weekend that I am avoiding like the plague, but that I must get to this afternoon.

You and LA should open your own knitting business. Teaching classes, taking orders, selling supplies, the like. Knitting is very hot right now.

joe - it is really warm and soft

flix - the double pointed needles look impressive, but aren't really

mishy - la is a much better knitter than I am - I was close to walking the streets of her town calling her name, desperate for help . . .

I'm here to tell you that socks are a royal P.I.T.A., exponentially so due to the lace. And don't let Diane fool you, she's equal to me in knitting, and totally surpasses me in output.

Diane - They fit you, I think you should treat yourself to a pair. I got some flannel yarn on vacation a couple years ago that totally needs to become slippers.
