I began the summer with the best intentions to get caught up on my kits, especially when the latest one arrived on my first morning of summer break. Once I had corrected the mistake made earlier in the knitting, I put the Dahlia down in order to work on some other projects. By last night, I'd only gotten to five repeats of the rounds 3-8 pattern. :/ I know exactly where to lay the blame and it's squarely on myself. I can't seem to stop myself from starting yet another project, so the starting and the finishing of things seem never to balance.

My favorite sockss

Hi everybody,

This is Rhonda the Stitchingnut joining you.

I finished my Bird of Paradise socks back in March but have now just got put on the KAL so I can post.

This yarn not only looks great, but feels great. I love, love, love it! I'm convinced I need to knit more but first, I think I'll wear this pair often.

Stop by and visit any time ... now I need to finish my next pair, but first I've got to get them started, LOL.

So much knitting to do ...

several inches forward, most of those inches back...

I was knitting along on Dahlia last night when it occurred to me that my sock wasn't looking much like Kristy's or the sock in the photo on the pattern. I had made my working photocopy right when the kit arrived and clipped the pages together. I forgot to review the pattern before I began knitting the sock recently, a mistake that caused me to keep repeating rounds 1-7 when page 3 of the pattern clearly states "Rounds 3-8 form the pattern". I plead temporary insanity and overly zealous clipping together of patterns and have ripped back to my first round7. And now, to knit that elusive round 8. :)
