I am a sock zombie.
On this dawn of the knitting dead I am recovering from a Sock Madness weekend.
It is truly amazing what one can accomplish on 4 hours sleep a night if there is handpainted sock yarn on the line.
Round 1 – Zombie Socks by Sheryl Giles
Needles: 2.25mm DPNs and Circulars (Leg and Cuff and Heel – DPNs, Foot – circs)
Yarn: Shelridge Farms Soft Touch Ultra Handpaints (SU0107S-098) 2 skeins
As you can plainly see, I changed my mind about the yarn when I received the pattern. This SF Handpaint totally moaned “Zombie” at me and is truly the creepiest sock yarn I have ever purchased (last summer when I was irritated at DH, if you’re interested.)
Started at 1:20pm on Thursday and completed at 9:50pm on Saturday. I actually lost Friday due to work and family (grrrr) or else I would have been done Friday night.
As soon as the date of the next round is released, I’m re-booking everything so I can sleep the entire day before and then go into seclusion and knit like a madwoman.
Yesterday, I worked and then had dinner with my mom and sister (she loved her birthday purse btw) in Toronto. I forgot my *bleeping* camera at home (damned sleep deprivation) or else I would have some great snaps for ya.
I have to catch up on a few things today, like wading through laundry and trying to find the counter in the kitchen.
Wish me luck (now, where did I put that machete…?)
