I have a love hate relationship with socks now

I will start by saying I have no pictures to show so if thats why youve come (not that my photography is any good!) then you dont get a show today. :( Sorry! Im to lazy to find my camera and take a picture of the sock I am working on and to add to that its the evenining and we know what that means in the winter, no sun light!
So anyways the last I left this was I working on a second try of the first sock.. well that didnt work! So I then ripped it out and tried a third sock when I finished knitting that one I gave it again to Mark to try on and it was to big! I was so fed up with socks that I couldnt stand it but I ripped it out anyways and started over on the fourth sock! Thankfully this time when I gave it to Mark to try on he could pull it on properly! WOO HOO I had a sock but I just had to finish knitting it and make the second one. Well have managed to finish the first sock and am currently just past the cuff of the second one, all I have to say is right now I feel no love for these socks. When I told my loving mother about these socks she laughed and said if I were to pay myself for knitting these would be the most expensive socks in the world to which I laughed and said no I would have fired myself a long time ago!! and its true I would have. Once I finish this second sock I want to find a dress pattern I like and sew me a pretty red dress out of the material my Mom sent me for xmas and then I want to knit the Feb Lady Sweater out of the silver yarn I got from her as well all in time for xmas day.
Hope the americans had a lovely Thanksgiving day and didnt eat to much that it made em sick! I made a lovely honey mustard ham, sweet tater mash, boiled veg, and some stuffing for our dinner. It was only the two of us but it was really lovely and we were full to the brim!
Pretty much finished on all the gifts as well like I said above just one more sock to knit and then need to figure out 3 more gifts and that should be easy enough really two will be some kids toys and I love shopping for toys! Hey you have to test them out to make sure they are fun dont you? Well I do and I LOVE it!
Alright have a great weekend Ill be knitting on a sock and trying not to cry because they have taken so long.. heheh...

sometimes I have to put stuff down and work on something else then go back to it later. I don't know why that happens... but believe me there are just some days. Turkey day was wonderful, and Fred Claus was a hoot... must see that one. ;)

I know what you mean about the socks. I have a pair that's set aside because I was getting frustrated with it. I might frog the heel and do a short-row one instead.
