Am I Just Lazy?

As you all know, I'm a sock knitter. I can knit lace, but as far as sock knitting has gone for the past few months, I just can't bring myself to actually knit a lace sock. I keep casting on, and everything is going well, but then I just don't feel like doing it anymore so I frog it.

I don't know why I keep doing this. I feel like I've advanced past the rib and stockinette sock, but I don't feel like knitting anything but that. Maybe I should remember that I knit because I enjoy it, and not to do fancy things that I don't want to do.

That's it! I'm going to go cast on for a plain toe-up sock that's nothing fancy with my Lorna's Laces Bittersweet.

Oh, and I've been crocheting too. I've been using some lovely Fleece Artist mohair and boucle to make a stole/scarf/lap blanket. Can you tell I'm not sure how wide it's going to end up? I'm just going to keep going til I'm out of yarn.

Do you want to hear something unfair? I found out today that you can get a radio tuner for iPods, and I was ecstatic. Unfortunately, it's only for the Nano (which I don't have), and the iPod video (the newest generation). I just got my iPod last spring, and already it's out of date. At least I'm getting a lot of use out of it now that I'm working. Since most people at work don't treat the admin department like they're people, we are allowed to listen to our iPods at work. I probably use mine for about 6 hours every weekday.

Work is still really bothering me, but I've decided that I'm going to keep the job for now, and just complain about it more.

The math is still going well, although I'm not as far along as I had planned to be by the end of this week. Oh well, there's always next week!

Happy Mother's Day!!

I know what you mean about the iPods. I have a mini, and when I got it last year, it was the tiniest one out there. Now the Nano makes my mini look like a giant!

I agree with you on the socks - knit what ever you feel like knitting, not what you "think" you are supposed to knit!! Ribbed socks are just as great as the lacy ones. Sorry to hear about the job - thank goodness for the IPOD for distraction!!
