Stage 2 completed!

I finally completed my stage two socks for the Tour De Sock race. I was late. I knew I couldn't make the deadline a couple of days before, so relaxed and didn't worry about it.  The stage three sock pattern is very cool! But very complicated reading so I am not knitting it right now.  I am too confused this week with just my life so adding a pattern like that to my brain isn't going to be a happy thing. I will knit this pattern, just not right now.  The next stage drops on the 1st. I am not near a printer so will not be able to start until the 5th. I may or may not try to knit like crazy to finish that on time. Depends on the pattern (it involves beads).

Close finish

Stage 2
Although I was able to complete the stage one socks for Tour De Sock with days to spare, my stage two socks are still not finished and the deadline was Monday night.  It's ok.  I am not in it to win the race, just to make a donation to Dr.'s without Borders and have fun.  Stage three is beyond my mental comfort zone this week, so I will pass. Gives me plenty of time to finish Two and work on my shawl while waiting for stage four.

This week I am reading Emily and Einstein.  It is okay.

Back in the Groove

It has been a while since I blogged on my knitting blog. I have been participating in the Tour De Sock again. Fun, friendly competition while raising funds for charity. Stage one was released on June 1st. I was able to finish my pair before the deadline.

As for reading this week, I got a wonderful book in the mail, "Inspired by the National Parks" By Donna Marcinkowski DeSoto.  Shameless plug: I have an art quilt featured in this wonderful book! You can read about my piece here.
