Finally, an F.O.!!!

I have finally finished my sockapalooza 4 socks! I am amazed at how much of them I got done while being whisked around town on our camp bus. Here's the specs on these socks:

Pattern: Campfire Socks by Cider Moon

Yarn: Sunshine Yarns sock in "twilight"

Needles: Size 2 US

Started:June 1

Finished June 26

I really hope my sock pal loves them as much as I do. Part of me wants to keep them for myself, but I think that means they're perfect for my pal! What do ya think?

Maybe it's time to make a switch

I'm messing around with template, but it may be a moot point. I'm gonna go check out wordpress. Can anyone who's switched from Blogger to Wordpress tell me if it was a drastic improvement? If so, how?

I know I have this rotten tendency to disappear once in a while, but I can assure all of you that I have been busy working for a special day camp and knitting on the bus as we take our campers all over town. Want proof?
Ta Da! I have finished my first sockapalooza sock! I'm using the campfire socks pattern from Cider Moon with a few alterations, of course. I decided to continue the rib pattern down the heel, and I decreased a couple stitches more than what I picked up to make them fit better. I am extremely pleased at how this sock turned out, but I am a wee bit worried I won't have enough for the second sock. See?

I started the second sock last night so I wouldn't have to try to start it on the bus, but little further progress has been made because the bus that was supposed to take us on today's outing broke down. If I don't fall asleep right after dinner, I'm hopefully going to at least get the ribbing done. Wish me luck!
