"It's the Most Wonderful Time of the Year!"

Ah, back to school. The season triggers memories of nervously getting off the school bus. New lunch boxes. (I remember having an Emergency 51 lunch box once. Also Adam 12. And either the Partridge Family or the Monkees, I'm not sure)

Now my kids are nervous and I am considering what LYS to visit first!

But on to other things. And projects: the sweater is blocked, the fingerless mitts - one set completed, the other awaiting a compassionate knitting pal's assistance, the socks, all 2 inches of them, are about to be stuffed into an envelope and mailed somewhere. Anywhere. The box is felted. I did start a "South Seas Table Runner" while on vacation and that's maybe 1/3 done. It's a lacy type pattern that makes big holes! So my UFO list is still pretty much unchanged. I wish it was easier to finish something than to cast on something else.

Wow! That is an impressive amount of knitting completed. Take pictures of the South Seas Table Runner!

Now, about the socks, give them a chance. It seems like they haven't had long enough to work their magic on you. If given enough time they just might become a favorite knitting project!

I agree. I knitted for 30 years before attempting socks. I am addicted. They are easy, fast and very portable. Are you knitting circular needles or double pointed? Toe up or cuff down?
