1 Month to Go!

Only 1 month until I have to get these lovely sockapal2za's out in the mail. As you can see I've cast on for the 2nd sock and I hope to have it knit up a tad quicker than the 1st. Oh ya, remember all the panicking about the yarn? Well, no need for all that. I had a little Barbie sized ball of Koigu leftover. Maybe I'll knit myself a pair of Alison's ankle socks with the 3rd skein!
These socks may look extra long and that's because they are! My sock pal has 10" feet from toe to heel!

Last night I rented the movie Word Wars, I liked it. It was a bit of nerd overload but who doesn't love a nerd now and then? Splatgirl says the book Word Freak is better though. I have this book in my library so I'll get to it one of these months. Speaking of Scrabble, I have a few Scrabble tile stitch markers that I bought off ebay.

Here they are pictured with the leftover Koigu.
Love them. Anyone up for a game?

What a beautiful sock - those colors are really very different but very lovely together. And I love those stitch markers! That Word Freak book was very good. I don't even play scrabble, but I really enjoyed it.

I've been a crazed Scrabble player all my life, but nothing like the people in that movie. I have a link to an online Scrabble site on my blog... if anyone wants to start a game.

My email is slickknitchick AT yahoo DOT com

Gee- I wonder if I'm the only big-foot sockapal2zer out there? could they be for me? They look great- the yarn is scumptious- I love koigu. I can dream on I suppose...

I wish I could tell you who these socks were going to but it's a secret!
