"c" is for

...crazy! it's been over a month since my last post. i don't know what i am doing! income taxes (yes, i waited to the last minute. why are you asking?) and 3 sock patterns to be knitted and written up.

i did finish knitting a mismatched pair of "bling" ("just a little" and a "bada" version) for the 50 socks/50 states book cd. yep! mismatched socks are my lifestyle. NOT! i really do have a problem wearing mismatched socks. remember! i am the person who knit 4 mitts to finally get a pair of matching jasmine fingerless mitts. yes, that would be me. so i plan on knitting another pair of "just a little bada bling". i am going to try it with a beaded cuff, beaded centers, and beaded back sides so the beads go down the heel flap but not the front insteps; so this would be inbetween the two versions.

then i have to finish up theknitter.com's april luxury sock kit. loved the yarn and really had fun with the pattern. the kits should be in the mail soon so i will be able to show you the socks in the next week or so. i also designed theknitter.com's may sotm club socks. loved this yarn too. i am actually knitting the mate to this one and may have a real PAIR to show you when i can.

other than that, i was just sent a new batch of mini-mochi which has been spun a little tighter than the original batches. seems like the yarn will be less splitty but it is not as fluffy. i am wondering if the yarn will fluff back up after washing? i kind of like the fluffy mm. well, off to check out the stitch pattern books; i am thinking scarf!

i've signed up for so many mystery sock/shawl kals for the months of april and may that i can't keep track of the clue releases and of course, have not started any of them. oh yeah, i am still working on my "i am not a lemming leyburn" socks too. that kal officially ended march 31st. oops!

LOL! You're lucky to have new mini mochi to work with :-) In The Netherlands it is completely sold out and we're waiting until the next shipment arrives. I like the socks you created for the book though!

Beautiful pair of socks. Looking forward to the future patterns. New mini mochi? We still don't have any OLD mini mochi here in the land of roos. :( Enjoy all that bounty!
