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!

Love,
Annie

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