Sock thoughts

So I got my Sockapaloooza pal info the other day. NO I'm not going to tell you if it's you or not.... But you can still bug me about it if you like purples, greens and blues and browns and socks. I think I have the sock yarn already but tomorrow we're going to altoona and I'm stopping at the yarn store. so I may change my mind if I find anything pretty. I'm also trying to decide between patterns. I'm thinking of this sock pattern it's pretty. You know I say I don't like lace patterns but that's a like I do like a few. Or maybe one from my Knitting on the road book. There's one in there called New England with some really pretty diamonds on them. I think though that I would put the diamonds around the whole sock not just the front. Or I really like the Whitby pattern in the book too... Though I'd probably do more cables, I like cables. There's also a few from Fiber Trends that are pretty. Of course I like to knit my socks from the toe up. So I was thinking of going to the library and borrowing a book with different stitches in it and making up my own pattern. If you're looking for sock patterns this site has a TON of them linked from all over the web.
speaking of knitting have you seen these awesome knitted fortune cookies. I love them. I have to make them this weekend... Also on cool knitted food there's the sushi from magknits. It's all very fun I think!
well I'm watching Dark Water as I type and I'm getting pretty freaked out. She just went upstairs...Oh ok... Not scared... All that gross water EEWW and what was with the hair in the cup?? Gross.
anyways must go and thoroughly scare the crap out of myself! Have a great night!

I LOVE the diamond sock pattern. Since the move (and premove) I have left and forgot about my socks.....need to get back to it!

So many patterns to choose from eh! For my next pair (not counting the current ones I'm working on for my nephew) I think I am going to do the feathers and fans pattern over at Shazzas Knits. I also want to try that famous Jaywalkers pattern (though that one scares me from all the things I've read on various blogs). I've done two pairs of socks in the same pattern so far (both pairs for my nephew were also the same pattern but I doubt that he really cares lol), but I want a sock that feels a little more tighter. I think the pattern that I have done is to turn the cuffs down once to make them shorter, but I don't want them that way...I think that might be why the cuff part feels a little looser than I'd like...but still they are comfy and that's what counts.

Socks, socks, socks! There are soooo many patterns to choose from! Whatever you pick, I'm sure your pal will absolutely love them.

Oh, and the fortune cookies are so fun! Target just had Chinese-food style boxes in their $1 section. That would be too cute!

I need to start knitting socks, but I have to kick my fingerless glove habit first.

Lovin' the knitted food.
