I'm on square 25 of 55... it's looking good. I haven't had much time to knit the last few days-- way more than the usual helping of work drama.

Sam came outside in his pajamas and his brand new way-too-big sandals to help with my photo shoot this morning. He thought he could help by lending perspective, to help the blog reader better understand the actual size of the blanket so far. Actually, he said "Mommy, out!" but I knew what he was thinking.

I got an e-mail from my secret sock pal today... I think she missed the "secret" part... but that's okay. Kathy in Minneapolis, I'm glad you're my not-so-secret sock pal... I do like green... and I can't wait to get my socks in September! They will stay a surprise until then because I don't think she has a blog.

I checked out the blog of the person who I'll be knitting socks for... she says she likes bright and wild colors, so I'm thinking of knitting with this:

I want to find an interesting pattern... there has to be more out there for self-striping sock yarn than just... stripes. The ones I did for jw were cool, but it's too soon to do the same exact ones again, I think. I have lots of cool sock patterns, but many are written with solid colors in mind, and I don't know how they'd translate with the stripes. I have a few ideas... I may attempt a Bethany original design. I'm not starting just yet though... I'm still interested in the 4 projects I'm working on now.
