New socks

I am starting to feel very strange, I am knitting socks during my free time. I should be working on my freeform top and hubby's cardigan, but nooooh, socks it is, and many of them started.

Belle Eloque socks that I mentioned in my previous post, are frogged and started again with a "normal" cuff. I didn't like my picot edging, I wasn't careful in turning the cuff, and it was crooked at some parts. I could have tried again, but was too busy to start the new pair. So far it looks great.

Here is a new sock, "Seaweed Socks" by Wendy Johnson. I went to get the link, and noticed that Wendy has started new socks. This is going to kill me, this sock phase.

I guess socks really are addicting! I can't wait- I got a sock book being shipped to me in the mail. They will be my first pair. I am kind of excited because I really want to discover what everyone is talking about! p.s. I am the moderator of the new Ravelry group!

Hey, I'm back again, LOL! Thanks for your kind words! I wanted to tell you about the avatar you were talking about. I did the background here: http://www.jacksonpollock.org/ It's fun, you click your mouse and then start moving it around, click the mouse to change colors! When I finished I clicked the "PrtScn" (print screen) button on the top of my keyboard and open Photoshop Elements (you can also use the "Paint" program that is under the "Accessories" tab on a Windows computer and then I click Edit and Paste and the Splat screen design appears - I then cropped the image to remove the computer stuff that was on the screen and changed the size of the picture to avatar size. Oh, the one I have "KNIT" on I used a filter or 2 from Elements, but it can be done easily with the Paint program, too. That page is quite addicting, LOL! I'm easily pleased, LOL!
