Fiber Arts Friday: First Socks, Still Going

I mentioned last time that Hubba gave me a deadline to finish his socks.  That deadline is tomorrow.  I am not going meet it.  :-(

Aside from Sunday, I didn't have much fiber-y time or energy this week.  I keep telling myself that once we finish our software testing, things will go back to normal.  Of course that's not true because I'll be into testing on my other project.  So I'm afraid I may only be sharing tiny bits of progress each week until next year.  :-/

That being said, I was able to knit during the marathon on Sunday morning, a little football time in the afternoon and since I confused the time I was supposed to leave the house with the time Hubba's plane landed, I had a whole lot of knitting time while waiting at the airport.

It does seem like airport waiting is my prime knitting time.  :-/  At least it makes the experience less painful.  ;-)

I did encourage myself to knit one round each night when all I wanted to do was go to sleep, so at least I am ready to start the heel on sock #2.  :-)


I'm certain everyone else will have interesting things to share over at Wisdom Begins in Wonder because it is Fiber Arts Friday. :-)

Life definitely can get in the way of knitting and other fiber activities. I just think of it as everything in moderation. Sometimes you can and sometimes you cannot. It is good to take a break too. Reestablishes your love of fiber...sort of like when you go on vacation and miss your house and cannot wait to come home!

I hope things do start to slow down after your testing finishes. At least the socks got some progress!

The socks are looking great, it can be hard to squeeze knitting time in, hope work is not stressing you out too much

Keep chuggin' along! Those bigger socks sometimes take forever, and its even harder when knitting time is pared down :( Good luck!

Very pretty colors on the socks ... like berries!

I'm sure once your turn the heel the rest of the sock will go very fast. Here is hope there will be extra knitting time this weekend!

Thanks everyone. I'm actually quite surprised I'm as far as I am. :-)

I'm certain he'll understand that you might not make the deadline. :)

Waiting for or riding on transportation is a great time to get some crafting done!

Tell him that you can't rush art. Argh! I just tore back my second sock of the second pair to the ribbing because I screwed up the heel. The socks are looking great!
