Don't feel sorry for me

That's right... it is my last day of vacation, but you don't have to feel sorry for me. Eight more weeks and then I am on summer vacation. So I can't really complain too much. With housesitting this week with a few extra dogs, I don't really feel like there was much vacation. Although I got some small knitting done and I got four books read! So it can't be all bad!

I finished a fourth pair of wool socks for CIC and they will be sent in the next few days.

Then I have been working on my hubby b-day socks. They are working up so well! I am already on the gusset and will have some time tonight to work on them. Plus last night I even started my lastest 6soxKAL socks in black and cream colors. I am just about to start the multi-colored words part.

I have to graph that out soon so I can pick those up again! I did go to my LYS and pick up another skein of black and the cream to work on these. I also grabbed another color that will be perfect for the broadripple pattern at knitty. I have been meaning to get those worked on and this yarn will be perfect! I swear though at the store they had more sock yarn than I remember! I tried to get the fiber trends felted clog pattern there, but they were out. I went to pick up more wool at ACMoore with a 50% off coupon and saw that there was the child's version there. Now I ask you... the largest child size is 9 inches and well that is my foot length... could I just use the child version to make myself a pair or should I get the adult pattern? Thanks for the input. Now I am off to do laundry and knit of course!

All the socks look great! How do you like the Knitpicks yarn? I have been tempted to try it but with the stash I currently have it will be a while before I can justify buying sock yarn on the internet.
