8

How about starting June, the Project Spectrum month of BLUE off with a quiz?

You Are Indigo

Of all the shades of blue, you are the most funky, unique, and independent.
Expressing yourself and taking a leap of faith has always been easy for you.

I do like Indigo but I’m not sure how accurate the description is.

Green EL Socks 2I finished my Green Embossed Leaves socks last night while I watched the Spelling Bee. Shut up! It was sooo not dorky. The spelling bee was actually pretty cool and I was happy that a girl won. Chick power! Even cooler – my daughters were totally into it.

I’d do the usual project wrap up but I’ve done the pattern before and used the yarn before. There was really nothing new here – I just like them. Speaking of liking them, the 8 in the title refers to the number of socks that I’ve made this year. Considering that I’d never made even one pair of socks before January, I think this is amazing. What surprises me is that I’m not over the sock thing yet. I’m actually pretty sure that I’m going to cast on for at least TWO (possibly THREE) pairs this weekend. My Trek socks will get started for sure but that’s a summer long project and I’ll work on them mostly when I’m traveling and … trekking. I’ve also been dying to try doing 2 socks at once with a Turkish cast on ever since I first saw
this but I’m not sure that this will make a great traveling companion. It sounds better for TV knitting. I’ll probably still need a third sock to stuff in my pocketbook for commuter knitting. I just can’t stop knitting socks!

With all of the sock knitting going on it’s a wonder that there’s time for anything else but there is. I’ll definitely start M.M.Cozy tonight and I started the front of the U-Neck Top during lunch today. I also want to try to create something to start as soon as Lindsey’s top is done for Stink and my niece. All my girls need cute summer tops.

I am so happy I found your site. It appears we have more in common than knitting! I'll let you know when I complete the "world renound" triple lindee patern. It will be soon!

That's a great shade of green!
Turns out I'm royal blue... probably because I said an ideal career was "queen"
