Not exactly what you call progress...

The bug's eye view of the knitting machine and sock under construction

The knitting front is going more slowly than I might like. I’m trying to build me a sock. Good luck with that, OddBall. Honestly, if I was hand knitting, I’d have the damn thing done by now.

I know, I need to give myself a break. This is the first crack at circular knitting and it's only the second time I've used the ribber.

Big ol' box of goodies...because they were lonely and they made me take them home.

The Yarn Guy was in town. I bought yarn. Yeah, like I needed more freaking yarn. But this was coned yarn and in the light weights I can’t buy around here. I’m sure the OddBall IT and Technical Support Division (toting and hauling department) will reserve commentary for later.

Short post today, I’m going to go back and see if I can’t win on the sock front. Talk at you’se all laters; thanks for reading.

The IT Division was there to watch over the Odd Balll. I was not going to let her go any where near the Yarn Guy with out Adult Supervision.

Unfortunately, there were no adults available and I had to settle for you and now I'm $150 poorer.

I was happy to limit just to 150. If I would not have been there it would have been 3 times that much knowing your addiction to wool.
