But what about your Ravelympics?

I never expected to be the Michael Phelps of the Ravelympics, but I didn’t think I’d be the kid who parties a little too hard after the opening parade and slept through the first elimination round. I’ve made a ton of knitting progress this weekend, but do you think I’ve touch that project? No. No, I have not. Even my husband, who couldn’t care less the Ravelympics has started asking me what the deal is. (I dropped two stitches by carrying it around in my purse, I can’t get them to pick up properly, and I’m sulking about it. That’s what’s really going on here.)

Saturday, I put the heel in my toe up socks. I’m not sure about this short row heel business. All that wrapping stitches and moving them around felt way too fiddly and by the time I was done, I was calling them nasty names. I haven’t decided yet whether it was tedious because I didn’t know what I was doing, or if it really is just way too freaking involved for my tastes. Either way, I have to admit that it was nice to finish the heel and know that all I had to do was the leg. There’s no going through decreasing back down from the gusset, so that makes the process feel a little faster.

The good news is that the heel is finished and they fit my feet. The bad news is that they fit my feet. I totally didn’t intend for them to be for me. I’m wondering whether they’ll stretch, or whether I can block them out a little bigger, but if those aren’t options, keeping them for myself wouldn’t be the worst thing in the world. They are awfully pretty…..

To celebrate, the sock, Jason and I went shopping, and came home with this:

    Riiigghht. Sock-celebrating was what lead us to a new car purchase. …Actually that almost makes more sense considering how fast we made the purchase!! *stares at you suspiciously*
