Bad day? Just knit a sock. . . .

It's true. Today was a bad day of work. No, I did not spill raw sewage on myself. No chemicals in the eye either. Just your run of the mill, craptastic day. I plan to counteract the bad day with this: A new sock! I am still working on Coupling (well, more looking at the Coupling sock) but I wanted to start a new sock. This sock is a slight modification of my lacy socks I made awhile back. I want to write up the pattern to share but I wanted to knit them once more to see how I feel about them. I still love them! Oh, and the yarn is my very own Knitting Like Crazy yarn. :) Dyed just for me, by me. I love it too! Anyway, I made a deal with myself that if I finished Soleil, I could start a new sock. So, I know what you are thinking, where are the FO pictures of Soleil? Well, I have to block her tonight and then you can see. Hopefully Thursday. Besides, I don't want to wear Soleil right now, I just want to wear this:
I saw this t-shirt on Cafe Press a couple months ago and begged and pleaded with Alex until he finally broke down and bought it for me (nothing like forcing boys to buy you cool presents). I am sure you all want one too, the link is here. I wore it out yesterday. I think some people may have been looking at me funny, but I don't care. :)

Hmm, what else? I reorganized the Knitting Like Crazy yarn this weekend:

And then I made some new labels for my yarn:
And then I put some more yarn on etsy:
This one is called Midnight Garden. I think it is more purple than blue and I just love it. A very nice yarn. Good stuff. Yes, yes, I am trying to tempt you with my yarns.* Is it working? ;)

Tonight the plan is to block Soleil, knit a sock, and perhaps drink one Miller Lite. Sounds like good plan when trying to turn a bad day around.

Happy Knitting!

*I am shipping to Canada now, so, you know, if you are in Canada and want some yarn, I can give you the sweet hook up. :) Just check out my etsy site for details.


  1. Oh you shame me .... I have GOT to get sewing!!

    Sorry about your day. I am nearing the end of one myself. School started today - med school - and I coordinate and do all the computer and on line stuff for our immersion gross anatomy course. Plus which there is construction going on so we have to herd the students all over the campus. I am EXHAUSTED!! ONE Miller Lite?? You've got more willpower than I.

  2. Knitting makes any day great!

    I love that shirt, there have been a few that I love! There is one that says "Knitting is my therepy" that I really want in a hoodie.

    I am still waiting on the birthday front. My mom said that she is thinking of getting me something else to go with the jewlery she sent me, so I am still holding off on just buying from you what I want. I wish she would hurry so I know what I am going to have to just order....

  3. Mmmm... Sock yarn! All those pictures are making it hard to stick to my sock yarn diet. But once I finish up at least one of the gifts I have in my queue, I'll be back for some! I really love that midnight garden. :)

  4. What a great t-shirt! Sorry you had a bad day. You sure have a beautiful sock started.. hope that makes you smile.

  5. Hi, I just stopped by your blog from the Sock Knitters Anonymous forum on Ravelry, and I have to say, I love the color of the second to last yarn in your pictures! The green is so bright and cheery!

  6. Socks are always the answer, but that shirt is exactly how I'm feeling right now.

  7. That t-shirt is awesome! And thanks for all the yarn porn; I needed a fix.
