Cabled Socks, Chocolate, and NEIL!

I've been dying to make me some nice warm, wool cabled socks. Well, I finally did it. I used Cascade 220 and it took me just over 2/3 a hank to finish them. They worked up nicely on size 4 needles.

The pattern can be found here. I also learned how to cable without a cable needle. That saved me a lot of time working on these. I spent about 4 days on the socks.

There are a couple of things coming out today that I REALLY, REALLY want. Charlie and the Chocolate Factory comes out on DVD and Neil Diamond has a new CD (12 NEW SONGS!). It's taking all of my willpower not to load up the kids right now and head down to my local Wal-Mart. I think I'll just be patient and add them to my Christmas list. And, if I don't get them for Christmas I'll rush right out and buy them then. Do you really think I can wait? You're right. I'll probably be posting pictures of my latest acquisitions tomorrow. I'm weak, what can I say?


  1. love the footies!! Just in time for chilly weather! Hey, you have to make sure and DVR The View tomorrow (Wed. on ABC, it's on at 10am) because guess who's on????

    Then you'll be out to buy that CD for sure!!!
