I realized that there have been an abundance of posts about knitting, and socks in particular – so this is not a post about knitting. I will not tell you that this morning I discovered that wee yarn ball #3 had been bitten into four very uneven pieces by little Destructo-Cat and so the Swamp Socks are going to have even more ends to weave in than I anticipated. I will also not tell you that since I am so ahead of my plan to knit one pair of socks each month in 2012, I’ve upped the ante and am now seeing if I can knock out eighteen pairs this year. Seeing as how I’m on number 7, it seems perhaps I may have gotten a bit optimistic, but since I’m not discussing knitting today, we’ll just leave it at that after a quick link to the Ravelry thread wherein I publicized this crazy intent in case you want to join in the fun.
Oh, look – the peas and beans have sprouted!
(a mix of peas and beans; I didn’t keep track of what I was planting where… It will just be a surprise as the pods grow!)
P.S. I’m down five pounds since the first of April. Yeah me! Slow and steady at just under a pound a week, I’m finally starting to “feel” the difference which is super motivating, though it isn’t quite enough to make a difference in how my clothes fit. Yet. 🙂
