The question of each of my days....will ever get time to knit?? Today the answer was no. Same as yesterday. Friday night I did manage a few rows on my socks. But Saturday and Sunday were crazy busy, as usual. First we helped out a friend with yard work, then went shopping for new frames for my daughter's glasses. Found a good sale at Mervyn's, so bought her some tops there. Came home, did laundry, cooked dinner, figured out the grocery list for Sunday's weekly grocery shopping trip, and fell into bed! Today (Sunday) was church, more shopping (!) and then the grocery shopping on top of that. Found my daughter some swim suits for summer and pants & tops for me. Yeah! Not that shopping isn't fun, but I really wish I felt like I had some time to sit down and enjoy my knitting. The socks I currently have going are Lorna's Laces Socknitter's Rainbow. I am using a pattern from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. It is the "Baby Cable Rib" pattern. I'm not sure I like the pattern with the color patterning of the socks, but I'm sticking with it. I have had this yarn for a long time, and I have a lot of other sock yarns I want to try and I'm not about to rip it out now! My daughter likes them, maybe I will just let her wear them! There is too much yellow/orange in the yarn for my taste.

I already know the next pair of socks I want to make. They will be the Opal "Ladybug" colorway. I will probably just do a plain knit in order to have the pattern of the yarn show up the best. But first I have to finish the ones I am working on. I am about 3/4 done with the first sock.

And now, time to sleep so I can work tomorrow!
