Get this!!!

Okay, remember that cute little sock that I showed you a picture of yesterday....the one that I spent 3 days doing 8 rows, or whatever,....that sock I was going to use for a swap....the sock that I was so proud of cause I got so far???? IT'S GONE!!!!! ZIP!!! ZILCH.....GONE!!!! And you know why it is gone? Because I thought I didn't have to give 100% to paying attention to every stitch I was doing....I said to myself, "gosh, I'm getting the hang of this...I can let my mind wonder a bit!" WRONG!!!! Next thing I knew I had TWO EMPTY NEEDLES IN MY HAND...NOT ONE...TWO!!! I can't tell you what came out of my mouth...okay....I said, "OH, CRAP!" I convinced myself that it just wasn't meant to be cause thanks to Sydney's comment on yesterday's blog, I think I may have been using the wrong size needles for the weight of my yarn. But never fear....I happened to have some nice gray wool yarn that I think will work on these # 3 needles...and I've already started on the new pair! So, hopefully I'll show you my progress in an upcoming blog.
On a happier note.....I just had to show you a picture of the cutest little cookie....that's what I said COOKIE!

Don't you just want to eat them up!!!! And I did....they taste the same as the real size without the calories. Check them out if you are a weight watcher like me (yep, I watch my weight go UP....and I watch my weight go DOWN....unfortunately the UP is ahead of the DOWN....but I'm trying!)
Okay, enough for tonight....I'll talk to yunz all tomorrow....tootle-lu!

I'm glad I was able to help with the socks. Next time you end up with two spare needles, see if you just had knit around through the other needle. I do that from time to time. If so, you should have one needle with twice as many stitches. Then just take half those stitches and put them on one of your spare needles.

You sure know how to have fun learning, Lucy! Good luck on your upcoming pair of socks :)

Hi Lucy,
Sorry about the sock. I know the frustration of that all too well. I am a amateur, self-taught knitter and at times I get so stressed with fear that I will drop, twist, etc. stitches.
I would be honored it you would add me to your bloglines and I will add you to mine. And, please stop by anytime.

Oh Lucy, I'm sorry about the sock... Same happened to me many times... You'll try again!
Such a cute cookie!

Ok now you are making me rethink trying my hand at knitting socks. Not very good a knitting in general, but now I am scared. Sorry about your sock. You will get it this time. Watch your mail!

Oh dear Lucy! Not being a sock knitter I can't imagine what you did but it doesn't sound good! Better luck next time. :)

I've done that before, but you'll get the hang of it.
