I Can't Knit Socks

Fairly new to knitting, the ever popular knitted sock continues to frustrate and confuse me.

Unfortunate Pooling

I was in a lecture yesterday and the woman speaking had on this beutiful knit sweater coat thingy. It came down to her knees. It was lovely except for one part (and I found myself distracted by it and wishing I had my cell phone to sneak a picture). It was done in a blue and brown variagted yarn and basicly made blue and brown striped throughout the garment . . . but, on the butt, it pooled in such a way that it looked like huge brown and blue verticle stripes. It was just on the butt. What was the maker thinking? It kind of look liked this: Not my best drawing, but you get the idea.

Snowy days

I have several pics of knitting that I want to share, but for some reason, my computer is not recognizing my memory card. I am not at all computer savy, so it will probably be awhile before I can get someone over here to help me.

We have finally gotten enough snow here to have fun in. School has been closed for 3 days in a row and we have enjoyed sledding and building snow forts. I am keeping my fingers crossed for one more day off (I teach, so I get the days off too). I just wish we had more food in the house. The kids have been snacking like crazy. :)
