You know you're in Wisconsin when....
I have bent to the masses (ha!) and finished the Hubby sock! In my opinion, he seemed to be underwhelmed....sigh...oh well. I do like thses socks though, if I do say so myself....here are the best shots I could get.
Yarn: Lorna's Laces
Pattern: Gentleman's Shooting Sock
Mods: You know I did Short row toes and heels!
Update on Knitbloggers for Blood:
-The lovely lady of Chewy Spaghetti has donated a prize for the drawing! So get donating, so you can win! Go to her Blog and link to her esty shop....I'll post a link soon.
-Kristen made a new button for the blog! Go steal it from the sidebar now...
Some of my lovely readers have requested an updated pic, showing my weight loss progress, so on our way out to a wedding this weekend, my hub snapped this.
....and HOW did it get here?!!!
Isn't the Traveling Knitter a sock knitter? Isn't that all we've seen here, on this blog? Where did this lace come from? What REALLY blows my mind is that this is over 1000 stitches already and it looks like NOTHING! Well, maybe there will be more progress on this lace THING, since I'm going on VACATION!!!!! I may have limited access to the internet but I'll try to post to show you where I am.
Last but not least.....hey Jes If I threw all the socks from my last post together, would that count as a "Sock Mountain"? Would Jordan enjoy that or would the pointy sticks be too much for her? :)

Some of these things are not like the others....
Can you tell which thing(s) are not like the others
By the time I finish my song?
Yes the words are a bit different:), but here are SOME of my WIPs. ONLY SOME, PEOPLE!
From Right to left: Cotton Blend sock in Dancing from Knitpicks, Giant Man sock for my Uncle, Socks That Rock sock for me (that may turn into mom's since she's displayed interest in it...how can I say no!?), Thick Ski sock for a Cousin, Giant Man sock for the hubby (he has desperately been wanting to have, FINALLY!), and on the other end, cablely sock that will eventually be dad's (if it fits him...it's a bit on the small side)
Now can you see which ones from the top don't belong? These are ALL second socks except for the ones on the end. Thank you for playing our game. So, for your amusement and mine I'm going to have a blog poll to see which pair of socks I should complete first. Vote now!

Blogger vs. Bloglines.
Practicing New Stitches.
Pessimistic question of the day:
Why are we supposed to be happy that "every cloud has a silver lining"? Doesn't a silver lining mean you are about to get rained on? Just sayin!
Interesting blood fact of the day:
Since a pint of blood is a pound, you lose a pound every time you donate blood.
Duuuuuude....Where is my nearest blood bank!
Speaking of weight loss....I bet you guys think that since I stopped talking about it that have given up that New Years resolution....NOT SO! Since January, I've lost 50 LBS! Unfortunately, I can't budge that number in the last few weeks, but I feel great!
That's it from the news desk....Keep those Blood donations coming.
