Second Sock Syndrome

So a couple of months ago I got on a knitting socks kick, proclaiming that socks were going to be the only thing I knit from now on. About three weeks ago I decided to knit a pair of socks for me (all mine), then ... the second sock syndrome hit. On Wedenesday I finally start the second sock, lets hope they don't look entirely different.

It's been long enough (over a month) since the whole knitting olympics tragedy, so I've started knitting my linen shirt again. I spent a very long time looking for the perfect lace pattern, but couldn't find it, so I made one up (or rather, reinvented, since most every stitch has probably been done before).

Here's the finished sock. I kinda got socked out, so I have to do another project before I can make it's mate. You can't really see the pattern on the leg, but it has large diamonds. I'm pleased with it.

I've decided to restart that linen shirt I had begun for the knitting olympics. I'm still experiementing with crap yarn, but I think I've decided to go with the ostrich stitch for the bottom half, still not sure what I'll be doing for the top half.

Noah made his first hat the other day. For some reason I'm the only one it looks half-way decent on, and lots of hats don't look very good on me. It also has a matching scarf.

I was seriously considering titling this post "Sock it to me," in an attempt to try and fit into the blog community by using a snappy title. But I just couldn't bring myself to write it. Fortunately, I quickly realized there's a great big embarrassing line between wit and "Sock it to me." Granted the title "Socks" is underwhelming ...

ok, enough ranting.
I finished the sockotta sock, I had made this sock one and a half-other times. I'll probably rip it out again since it's just for a store sample. I'm also making myself some socks from Argyle. It's actually looking rather tweedy, which is surprising.
