Squares on Sunday IV and V of April, plus I of May

Whew, I haven't posted a SoS since the 18th! Since then, I've completely finished my Inga's bag, but it needs a lining. On the 18th I did a square for my little Microspun project and took the 19th off. I wanted to start socks, and I wanted to start hexagons with my wool, but I wanted to focus on the socks. I still had some days left so I said the hell with it and started the hexagons:


I only did three squares because I refound my acrylic stash and really wanted to start busting it. So using the same pattern I've been doing two colored hexagons and joining them as I go with white. Here it is a few days ago lookin' like an amoeba:


And a semi good picture after today's 4 hex binge:

With a cactus in the background for good measure!

So that's what's been up for SoS. I've been working on the afghan. I'm not too thrilled with the socks anymore. I've gotten 4 inches into the 1x1 ribbing which is a snoozefest. It's supposed to be 8. O_O No way. I want to start the heel, but the book recommends sitting somewhere silent to really understand it, and I usually knit while I watch TV. Ah, I should just go on ahead and dive in. If I make a mistake I can always frog, right? Plus this afghan is taking up all my time. I made 4 hexes (ha) today and I've been joining them as I go. You should see the back, it's a nightmare. DO NOT WANT to weave in those ends!

I also need to get crafty things organized, because I just found a cross-stitch kit I forgot I had. I never have to buy any craft materials ever again. I always forget what I have. That and we're getting new carpet so everything has to be moved out of my room and the craft room. Ug.

Yes indeed! It started out as my mom's computer room, but after my television migrated in there, so did a lot of my other stuff. I have a whole side with a table for my sewing machines and a closet dedicated to crafts. That said, there's still yarn and still all over the house. :3

Thanks!
