NaBloPoMo--Every. Single. Day. Oh my.
I might be smacking myself upside the head in a few weeks, but I'm giving it a shot--blogging every day for a month. The theme for August is "Green," as in the color, being ecologically responsible, envious. Maybe not envious, but I added it because envy is so easy to blog about. Hehe.
For my first August post, I offer up my finished Laurel Socks, from Wendy Johnson's Toe-up Socks for Every Body. The color way is Bermuda Teal, from Dream in Color Smooshy. Good thing this yarn isn't readily available in my area because my yarn budget would be blown. Yarn budget--I crack me up!
The pattern looks intense but if you pay attention, it's not so bad. I got a little discombobulated after the heel flap so there's a bit of weirdness going on a few rows up, but it's not noticeable unless I show you exactly where it is. In my defense, Baby Watch was going on at the same time, so I was a bit distracted. I decided not to frog because they will remind me of Tilly whenever I wear them. Sometimes, distractions are a good thing.
August is also back-to-school month for most of us. Try not to do the happy dance in front of your kids.
