Let's Go Pens!

I finally finished my Penguins socks. I started them when they won the Cup(2009) and finished one very quickly and then the dreaded second sock syndrome hit and I worked on the second one sporadically. I thought I could finish them while watching games last season but what I have learned is that I cannot knit a lot during a Pens game--I get too into the game. But they are done now, ready for pre-season which starts at the end of September!

I also started another pair of socks for my Grandmother. I'm trying to do them using the magic loop method. I'm not sure my gauge is the same this way but I am getting the hang of it.

In other news, I started a third round of P90X when my kiddos started school in August and I have finished the first month, starting the second this week. I just love P90X even though it is sometimes a pain to make the time to workout everyday--the results are more than worth it. Speaking of which, I need to go workout now.

Finished Skew(s)

Skew 6Aug2010

I finished these a few days ago. I shortened the foot a little on the second sock and I like the fit much better.

I think that this pattern is more about form than function; they will be nice socks this winter when I want something warm on my feet while I am padding around the house or ---God forbid---shoveling.
