Where I ramble on and on and on....

So I know you WANT to see the socks, and I wont dissapoint you!

Just another pair of Father and Son socks from Interweave Knits I think it was Winter 2006.

Did you notice as well?? I am knitting them with PURPLE knitting needles!!! Okay I really did hope you wouldnt notice they are DPNs me who swore them away. You know what though since using these I really like em! Now I dont think I would pick them to do sleeves with, but I do think I am knitting quicker with the dpns over the one or even two circular needles...

I got the purple knitting needles from http://www.knitncaboodle.co.uk/ Check em out. Great service and good prices! I cant believe I didnt mention these needles when I ordered them. Thats a lie I didnt mention them because I broke my own "I hate DPNs!!" rule so it was more if they sucked and I couldnt stand knitting with them no one would have known!! HAHAHA

Yesterday I had to run into town and pick some stuff up for my wonderful sweetie. Yes I do love him, and yes I do run into town whenever he needs me too.. But I always get myself something as well, Im not stupid! So anyways yesterday I picked myself up a copy of Friday Night Knitting Club after hearing all you other readers out there talk about it. And I couldnt resist its a book that has to do with a Knitting Club!! And I heard its going to eventually become a movie and I prefer to read the books BEFORE seeing the movie. I dont know WHEN Ill get time to read it but I WILL read it! :)

I also bought myself some BOOTS!!!! LOOK!!!!

They go up to about and inch or two below my knee. I love em! I feel a bit kinky in them as well!HAHAHA I never had boots this tall. Before you women out there shout at me, I know they arent heeled boots but I have a good reason! I DONT WEAR HEELS! Well I would LOVE to wear them but I find them uncomfortable and I find the ones you find today are stupid little things and Im sorry but I need a fat chunky heel. Because after talking to my mom I realised I walk more on my heels then the balls of my feet and to wear those stupid heels Id have to change the way I walk and Im not doing that! I have a strong walk! Okay I more have a determined get the heck out of my way I am coming through sort of walk, and that doesnt allow room for oh shoot Ive broken my ankle!!

Okay thats all for today I am off to knit on my sock and Im nearly to the heel today my plans are to finish down and past the heel and instep if I can! :) So that tomorrow I can concentrate on knitting the foot of the sock.

Love those groovy purple DPNs, Jenn! You're so good with your Xmas knitting. You're getting on like a house on fire! The boots look great, too. I agree about the heels needing to be a bit chunkier than the skinny stiletto type. I'm the same - I'd break my neck wearing them!
