Yay, I can post again! The computer was giving me fits, so I finally broke down and brought it in for service. Now it is working great and I can blog, keep up with my bloglines, chat with my friends etc. I have been missing all of them so much!!!! I hope not everyone gave up on me. I actually got a little knitting done too. Haha, don't get excited or anything, I just made some progress on the pink Trekking socks.

I thought working on a simple project might help get me in the right mood again. I was right. I am ready to go!

I think I am going to start a vest (probably one from that book) this weekend, finish up the socks, and I might start a new pair of socks from one of the slip stitch patterns in Sensational Knitted Socks. I have never tried that technique before, so we will see how it goes. I have the perfect yarn for them though. I received this yarn from a secret holiday swap partner (thanks Sharon!!!!!), and I can't wait to use it!

She gave me a skein of each of these colors, and I think they will make a beautiful pair of socks! Wish me luck!

I have been shopping, organizing and packing. Tomorrow I will tell you why. (squeal!)

I adore the color of those Trekking socks! Please tell what color number they are?

Glad that a simple project got your mojo back. =)

Pretty socks! That's a new to me Trekking color.

Glad to hear your computer is fixed and your funk is over. :)

I love those socks! I am more of a purple loving person, but those pinks are so pretty! I haven't used that kind of yarn...I've heard good things about it though.

You should join my sock knitters ring...anyone can join and there is nothing to do (it's not a KAL or anything like that, just a ring to unite sock knitters/crocheters). The link is on my sidebar, and there is even a couple of buttons.

I love those pink Trekking socks and I'm not much of a pink person. Glad to see you back in blogland!
