YOP: I'm still here!

I'm doing knitting and I'm still alive. I really should learn my lesson though. I don't like deadlines. I have never liked deadlines it doesn't matter who imposes these rules or how good these rules are for me. I just don't like them. Why then did I decide to do this again?

It also seems with these YOP posts I have three modes:
1. I blog a lot and knit very little
2. I knit a lot and blog very little
3. I do neither and feel ashamed.

I've currently hit mode three after being in mode two for a little while. With this post maybe I will move into mode one which at the very least is better than mode two.

Changes since you've last seen my socks.

Potpourri socks

Look! a sock! I have a whole completed sock that has been a whole completed sock for about a two/three weeks (wow has it really been that long since I've made a YOP post ooops) and I have just started the heel on sock 2. It has a honeycomb heel which I think are adorable and girly completely appropriate for this sock. but I sort of find them a pain in the patootie... But still I like them better than the other option which is short row socks.

I wore my rainbow collision socks (my first finished pair) this weekend. They were delightfully warm and perfect for the retreat in cabins that I was attending. also they left a really cook rainbow stain in my chucks.

Spot Check socks.

look! since the last time I showed you them you may notice that I have a different color on them. I went with the grey instead of the red because the red was just too close to the red in the multi color. While I loved the way it looked most of the time, their was just this one point where it would run in and just be a strip of red. I'm still not sold on the grey but I really don't have another option so I'm just going to push forward with it (I think...) is YOP really getting close to half over already? yikes!

Don't feel ashamed :(. I think everyone is handling YOP overload in different ways, so a break is probably helpful!
