I’ve finished February’s socks! Twinkle Toes by Cookie A in STR heavyweight… the yarn that wears like cast iron. These are the BEST house socks. I want to make a couple pairs of these in different colors, they’re perfect for warm feet on a cool evening.
Now? I just gotta finish January’s. Ahem. I’m about 40% into the second sock of that pair. I’m such a slow knitter. But I think I’ll get them done by the end of February and still be caught up. It occurs to me that maybe I want to knit more medium and heavyweight socks if I’m angling for a pair a month. “Knit like the wind!” is not an axiom that applies to me.
Today at Chez Couch Potato, in the name of getting knitting done, we’ve watched 3 eps of Dr. Who, caught 2 eps of Torchwood, watched Hitch and then watched all 3 Sarah Plain and Tall movies on the Hallmark channel. This truly was a day of doing fuck all.
Blink is quite possibly one of the scariest, most nail biting eps of Dr. Who I have *ever* seen. Sweet creepin zombie jesus. At once point I jumped, screamed and almost impaled the cat with a knitting needle. I am going to be SO very sad when David Tennant’s turn is up and we get a regenerated Doctor. I really like what he’s done with the role. I loved, absolutely ADORED Christopher Eccleston in the first season, but Tennant? He has totally become my Doctor.
Picture of socky goodness tomorrow when I a. have decent light for my camera and b. find my memory card. Also “C” is for…
