I have managed to knit a little bit

Even though I have had my hands full this last few days trying to get Robert settled back in and getting things ready for our vacation next week I have managed to make a little progress on my second sock. I was kinda disappointed at first because there was NO WAY to make the stripe pattern on these two socks even look like they were pretending to match. I knew I wouldn't be able to make it match exactly, but I wanted them to match somewhat. The more I knit on this second one, the less it matters. I am falling in love with the little mismatched buggers.

I am not sure why it was so important to me that they match, I guess since it was my first pair I wanted them to look like I knew what I was doing. That in itself kinda cracks me up. It is the rare occassion that I look like I know what I am doing.

Now for the "tug at your heart/purse strings" portion of this post:

Dudette, I could just squeal for you and that vacation!
Your socks look great whether or not the stripes match up, they'll feel like a bit of heaven on your feet.
Yep, been there, done that :^) at Julie Noolie's...very good cause...

Have you checked out Ms.K's project? For the families of the miners and rescuers? Knit a blankie square?

Just be proud of your don't look alike socks! It is a proof of that you have knitted them yourselves! We are many more with different socks - those who buy socks are the one with the socks that matches. Wow what a great holidayplan! Have a really nice time and take care!
