I'm addicted to socks.

I can't stop myself. I want to knit other things but I can't help myself! I have such lovely sock yarn that I have to knit it up. I know I could use the same yarn for something else but I find knitting socks so satisfying. I love the process. Thing is you would think after making so many pairs in a row that I would not have to spend time ripping and tinking back. I just loose myself. Here is the start of my Graffiti socks
The Rocky Roads as a pair.
Zorro Update

After getting me all worked up yesterday morning and staying hidden all morning, he came out for dinner last night and this morning. Last night he got on the back of the couch to get close to Sissy. She licked him a few times and then he settled down. He spent the night with us watching TV.

Last year I had a problem with Stanley and his leg. He had a gash but let me doctor him and his is OK. Since Zorro is not hiding out and eating and drinking and wanting love I am going to give him a better exam this evening. Now get this. I have kept Stanley in all weekend and after dinner tonight, he limps away! I'll check him out too.
As I sit here and write Zorro just stopped by. I was able to touch his feet but when I got to his elbow he meowed. Swelling has gone down since yesterday. I'll keep a watch and feel the situation out.

This is the way I feel about what the boys are doing. Using up their lives!

SO sorry about your cat. I hope he is better soon. We are sending lots of doggy drool and purrs your way.

I love the graffiti sock yarn. Amanda is such a talented dyer.

I swear cat ownership takes its toll on OUR lives as well. But I wouldn't have it any other way!!

BTW I LOVE that Graffiti yarn!! Great colors! Can't wait to see them done!

Your socks are gorgeous! I love that new yarn you are using. I really want to start a new pair of socks but I refuse to do so until I get caught up on everything else I have to get done!! :(

I sure hope Zorro is doing better!

Sending healing thoughts to your kitties...

I love the colors of the yarns you've been using! I've knit a couple of socks eons ago, I just could never get where the sock and heel join up to look nice, and without gaps or holes so I gave up. Your's look awesome!

Poor Zorro, I hope he's on the mend now... love that cartoon, so true! We used to have two cats, and they each survived Brown Snake bites (about second most deadly snake in Australia) - they definitely used up one or two lives on those occasions!

Your socks are looking great, no wonder you're addicted :)
