Time Is Not On My Side

I am time obsessed.  I don’t know why.  I wish I wasn’t.  My insomnia has returned somewhat so last night I turned my clock competely around.  It really helps me.  Even when I do wake up, I am more able to go back to sleep if I don’t know what time it is.  I’m not doing the mental calculations about how long I have left to sleep in my head.  Darling Husband Carl has his alarm set, and he’s not going to let me oversleep, so I don’t really know why I even need a clock at night.  Lots of times I play the game, “What Is The Worst Thing That Would Happen?”.  Like if I WAS ever late for work, what is the worst thing that would happen?  I might get in trouble, but I’m usually at least 20 minutes early for work, so I don’t think they would fire me.  Even if I did get fired, life would go on.  I’m working on having a more relaxed relationship with time.  Altho, I am freaking that the iPhone goes on sale at 6 p.m. on Friday night.  What is up with that?!?  So you know I’m going after work to get into line.

Okay, on to the knitting portion of the program.  I finished the first Perambulate sock:
Completed Perambulate #1“>
It is very difficult to take a photo of your own feet without making them look huge by the way. I found as I was knitting the toe on sock #1 that I made a fairly significant error in the foot. I was 5 stitches short. So I had to do some creative knitting so my sock wasn’t permanently like Madonna circa 1985 (you know I was totally into that look Troy!). Now here is my question, do I knit sock #2 to match or do I knit it correctly to the pattern? Thoughts????

I have some new yarn to share with you. The company is called Dream In Color. It is called Smooshy Sock Yarn and the colorway is Giant Peach. Cara and D helped me choose the color, thanks guys. I am seriously crazy about this yarn. I haven’t knit a stitch with it yet and I already want to order more. Wanna see?

I tried to shoot a close up so you could see the beautiful color and softness of this yarn. These maybe the Monkey socks! Also, coming tomorrow because his fans have been clamoring for it, a picture of Oscar.

I love the yarn in person. I like the socks better with your toes out as in previous post. I say make the sock correctly as per pattern.

I love the color of that yarn! It’s beautiful. Your socks are great – I am going to knit my first pair of socks as soon as I finish Delphine’s tank top.

Hey Bigfoot (just kidding), I’m confused. Why is Dave’s comment using your icon?

Because he always comments on my computer and forgets to log me out.
