ADD Knitting!

I finished the socks off for Kristen today. Remember, with the yarn I ran out of! They came out pretty nice and she loves them (first pair of socks I've made for her!).

Just in time too, cos I already cast on to knit the Almeara Gloves! And a couple of days before that I cast on to knit the Cleopatra Wrap. Yes there is some serious ADD knitting going on here. I might have put off knitting the gloves, but Charity said she'd knit along with me if I started them, so I couldn't resist :-) I'm hoping I can get the gloves knit pretty quick, if I don't I fear I may lose interest and want to put them aside - hopefully that won't happen now that I have a 'knitting partner'

The wrap will be put aside though until I get the gloves done. I'm still trying to get photos of me modeling Soleil! I was waiting for warmer weather, which we actually have this weekend (don't hate me, but it's 75 here today!) but I still have to crochet around one armhole, which I know I won't get to this weekend.

We're having a nice relaxing Saturday today, and I think I'll go pick up the gloves again ;-)

I didn't have any time yet today to work on the gloves, grrr, but I'm hoping I may yet have a half hour I can steal before I'm too tired to think. :o) How's it going?

Those socks look so comfy!

Those socks are so comfy looking. They turned out great! I've not knit my kiddos any socks, they are perpetually bad about wearing them outside to check the mail, or get something and I know they'd be ruined too quickly. Maybe I should knit them slippers?! anyways these are great!

Snuggly!!!! Glad you decided to bite the bullet and go for it with the gloves!

The socks look great and so comfy. I began my very first pair of socks today I was dying to know what the fascination was as practically every blog I view there are tons of socks getting knitted. I'm half way through the first one in what seems like no time at all, which is great. Can't wait to see the gloves.

Nothing wrong with a bit of ADD knitting, especially not when it results in such cute socks as these!
