I am crazy about these socks. They are soooo comfortable. The pattern is beautiful, the yarn is amazing (so soft!). Everything about them makes me happy. Especially the fact that they are DONE!
So... project done... what now?
Well, so many options. I STILL need to cast on for the second potomoose sock. I don't know why I haven't gotten around to doing that yet.
I want to re-cast on for Calla.
I want to finish my stuffed chicken. (that sounds like dinner, doesn't it?) And I want to make something from my World of Knitting Toys book.
I want to make more socks.
Earlier today, I had frogged an attempt at toe-up Jaywalkers. (The one's I worked on on the mall in DC...) I decided to rip them because they seemed HUGE. (I must say... owning a ball winder makes the decision to rip sooo much easier.) At work tonight, I cast on for them again.
I had to work at the Baltimore theatre tonight. While I was waiting for the show to start, I cast on for the jaywalkers. I was knitting away when I heard "jeez... are you knitting again??" Surprise! It was my doctor! His daughter was in the show tonight. (She's an understudy.) I got to thank him profusely for the wonder drugs from last week. And, I showed off the new yellow socks. I had been working on them when I was in his office last week, so he saw them in progress.
It's kind of strange running the show there because the lighting "booth" is in the audience. It's this strange little platform that is completely open to everything. So, I've got people talking to me constantly. The most popular question is "Where's the bathroom?" At intermission, I had "the chatty guy" bugging me. Asking a zillion questions that I didn't know the answer to. Hell, it was only the second performance I had ever worked there! Meanwhile, I've got a headset covering one ear. I hear my stage manager call "places" so I tell the guy I have to start the show. And he kept right on talking. Then I hear the SM call for the lights to go down... he's still talking. I finally said "Do you see that the lights are going down? Yeah... um.. I'm the one doing that... I'm kind of working here.." Apparently I was more entertaining than the show.
I'm off to bed. Two kid shows in the a.m. and then back to Baltimore and then WEEKEND!
