Don't blink, you might miss it

Yep. Knit a pair of socks this weekend. Did you catch it? Didn't think so, I'm not sure I did either...

Just kidding ;-) Of course I didn't miss it! It took me 30 hours, which did include a six hour sleep and several meals, not to mention lots of bathroom breaks, child interruptions, husband whinges etc etc. But seriously? That's the fastest I've ever knit a pair of socks!! Sock Madness indeed! And the first person to finish knit the pair in about 12 hours. Crazy...

I had a goal in mind, of trying to beat the person who keeps winning each round. Unfortunately, she scraped in before me. But I came third, which is pretty darn good if you ask me. Anyway, enough blabbering, here's a wee pic:



Pretty snazzy, huh? Dangerous Turns (Rav link), knit in Knitsch 'Peacock in the Parlour'. The colourway was one of the limited edition sock club skeins.

My hands aren't nearly as sore this time around as they were after round two (the Nornirs), but I don't feel like knitting any more today all the same. We'll just have to see how tomorrow goes...

The boys only have one more week of school before the Easter holidays - I must prepare myself. Perhaps knitting should take a break - gotta have some knitting saved for the holidays, to keep me sane while the boys tear the house apart!
