Lacy socks

I finally got one of the Ariel Socks done. It seems like it took forever, and it's very "pattern-rific" 30 different rows (not a nice 4 row repeat or anything...)

I just have no enthusiasm to do the second sock. And the yarn, Soxx Appeal, is odd. It's got a nice twist when you knit it up, but it untwists easily, so I'm not thrilled with it. Not that I'm not saying the sock isn't pretty or anything, it's just a pain in the yang.

I think I will put off doing the second one and do a different sock first. I know this is going to be a bad idea that will bite me in the arse, but I really don't think I can bring myself to work on the second one right now. And I need SOMETHING on my needles. I mean, as you can see, I could clean my house, but it just gets messy again, so what really is the point of that? hehehe

I am absolutely THRILLED that Knitting Daily had the Cable Down Raglan as one of their Reader's Choice Winners. I've wanted to knit this sweater for a while. So maybe I'll get started on that. I also promised Anna a sweater, and I think I am going to get familiar with my Ultimate Sweater Machine and see if I can whip it up on that.

The sock is really beautiful. I hope you will want to make the second one soon :-).
I have been knitting a sweater which bores me a lot. I only knit it when I have someone to chat with.
Have a nice Sunday.
