A little Dr. Seuss...

And with that said....this is my completed FIRST SOCK...ta-da!!!!! there's a little furry stuffed fox in it....just wanted to make you smile when you saw it, cause I certainly did...even without the fox.
Now there are alot of little boo-boos in it and that toe is certainly not the tightest...but I got the idea of how to make a sock and I've already started on the one a little different in style and colors for the swap which by the way is going very nicely and much easier. I really don't know if I'll make a match to this one since it isn't the most perfect one, but I may make another pair like it for myself. It is a warm sock but I can't seem to quite use the fingering yarn yet. I'd like to try a sport weight next and gradually go to thinner. I can't do 5 dpn yet...this one was only 4 dpn. I've never attempted a round needle yet...but I'll learn...hey, I taught myself to knit and this is really a big accomplishment for me.
So with that ....I'm gonna chill a bit. Most of my work is done with the Kitchen tho I can't show you the pics yet...but I will, not to worry. Oh, and thanks for all the knitting/crocheting tips on how to get more done. You guys are great!
Okay, till tomorrow and my last weekend without my sweetie man as he will be returning next weekend....and I hate to tell you this but....I may have to skip a few days of blogging next weekend.....and ya all know what I'm talkin' about!!!
Okay, till tomorrow...and sleeping in!!!
