NOw this totally sucks

My brand new knitpicks circular needle just came apart!!! what the ????? I was really getting into the knitting. have glued it but it won't stay. will try again but I just sent an email to knitpicks. Let's see what they say. Guess I'll start all over and do one sock at a time on 1 circular needle . dang it.

A Frogging I Did Go

Oh yeah, that is my diamond and heart sock alll frogged out. I didn't feel one tinge of regretd so I know I did the right thing. And the next photo I got all excited about because I figured out how to start both socks at the same time on the 2 circular needles. I have already made a vow to finish these socks. ONly thing that will keep me from it is my death.!! and I don't plan on dying any time soon so these will get done and worn by the end of next month for sure!!
What are you all doing???
I'm busy making a pretty project bag for when a certain friend comes to visit me next month! Hi Joy! Can't wait. Always gotta have welcome gifts when a friend comes visiting. weeeeee
My girl Tina and Mia Bella are coming to visit me today! Yea!!! They're here....whooohoooo

What Would YOU Do?

I have almost finished one of the heart and diamond socks after making a false start in the toe decrease I frogged about 12 rounds. Here is my dilema. I don't like how the sock fits on my foot. Mainly the heel. It is super narrow and my feet are short and fat. So do I frog the whole sock and use the yarn to make the mojo socks or do I finish this sock and make the other one?

What would YOU Do.

I will go by your comments. Yes finish No don't. which ever one has the most comments I will do.

Here are a few (the 3 on the right) of my clay dots I just made. and 2 sheepy head pins and one sheepy figure. I was just playing around cuz I do love the yarn dots. think these are the only ones I can make.

One pair of my Crocs

This photo is for Darcy. She said I should post a pic of my Crocs. Tomorrow I will take a photo of all of them but for now these will have to do. I wear these allllll the time. They keep me steady on my feet. No twisting of the ankle at all in these.
See the blue hearts and the pooky bear on the one in the back and the white sheep on the front one??? Love my dots. See Darcy I really do need some yarn and knit related ones big time. lol

Yarn Dots give away contest

Yarn Dots are all the rage. You know those cute buttons everyone is putting in their Crocs? Yea I have a few of them too! WEll these buttons are called Yarn Dots and are all about yarn and knit and crochet. Here is a photo of some of them:

Over at Darcy's Knotty Knitter blog she is having a contest and the prize is a bag of these dots. I so want some.
If any of you would like to give me a present just because you like me, one of these dots would do the trick. All I wear for the last year are my crocs. I have purple ones and blue ones and white ones and black ones, crocs that is.
I have a sheep dot and blue heart dot and pookey bear dot and a giraffe dot but no knit dots.
The only bad thing about them is, while they weigh next to nothing when I wanted to order 8 of them they wanted to charge me 7 bucks to ship them. I know it won't cost 7 bucks to ship those so I canceled my order.
don't know why that pissed me off but it did. So maybe I'll win me some. anyway go over to Darcy's blog and check out the contest. Tell her Patt sent you.
