Needles of a Different Sort

Tonight was knitting group night and I was so crabby I almost didn't go.  It's been a true full moon week with tons of crazy things going on and I'm not sure if that's what has my shorts in a wad or if it's just the usual February cabin fever.  Either way, I am so glad I went to knitting as laughing with the ladies was just what I needed. 

This is the project I bought and of course in full moon tradition, I left the pattern at home which I didn't realize until it was time to start decreasing for the toe.  I decided to trust my familiarity with the pattern and began my decreases.  Much to my delight, I had remembered the pattern correctly and I can continue on to finish this sock and hopefully complete the other before the birthday they are intended for arrives.  The yarn is OnLine which I've never used before.  The true colors are blues, greys and purples but I couldn't get the photo editor to really show them as they are.  I'm off to try and finish up the first sock tonight.  TGIF tomorrow!!!

Maybe I need to join a knitting group. ;) I've had some 'full moon moments' lately, too. So has Niek. Maybe we both need a group - separate ones! LOL!!

Your socks are lovely even if the color isn't showing up true. And congrats on remembering the pattern correctly!

YAY! I'm glad I didn't lead you astray, and you figured it out! Last night was a BLAST, and I'm so glad you turned up. :)
