Fool's Gold

Well I finished the first Socks That Rock 24 Karat sock. I have mixed reviews, I don't hate it but I don't love it either. Considering it is $ock$ that rock yarn, I should like them A LOT at least, ya know?!?! Anyway I cast on some self striping Trekking XXL socks in plain stockinette to keep up my pace. I am still loving the Lemongrass Moc Croc socks. I will definitely knit a couple of pairs of them, great pattern. I will probably go ahead and cast on my Monkey socks too. I have some beautiful blue Regia Silk that my Secret Pal 9 sent me. My Sockret Pal also sent me some green Regia Silk, that would also make some pretty Monkey socks. I still don't have any specific plans for my Tofutsies. I love the blues, so I want to use it for a really good pattern, not plain stockinette. There are so many yards of Tofutsies that I want make knee highs if I can find the right pattern.

I finally got caught up on my podcasts. Really good episodes out there so far in June. I just downloaded Knit Picks Episode 7, and will listen to it after I post this. I have been having a hard time keeping up with all of my KAL posts and Ebony Elite e-mails and posts though. Everyone is really active right now and there is lots to read. I like to leave comments, so folks know someone is out there reading their thoughts and ideas, but that takes time. I no longer have very much of that. I have not even been able to blog for almost a week. It's a wierd feeling, to log in to blogger and see something I wrote way back at the beginning of the week. It's like no life for days. I know stuff happened and I am sure I blogged in my mind, but none of it ever made it to the computer.

I know what you mean about being too busy to blog or even read blogs right now. I miss it.

I'm thinking about casting on for the Monkey socks too. Everybody seems to be making them so I figure why not?
