Seduce: to win over; attract

Yarn seduces me with her siren call. "Pick me! Pick me!" I am hopelessly enchanted by yarn and am delighted by the endless choices.

Missed it...

...missed the WIP Wednesday. I was so busy knitting (well between all the visiting, meetings, cooking, and cleaning) I missed posting my wip.

First let me direct your attention to a "Mini Sock Refresher" I participated in on Monday at SuKnitWitty's.
Su had FSS (First Sock Syndrome). She managed to not catch SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) by casting on for the second sock before the first one was finished. But alas, FSS hit! And then, family stuff came up, quilting stuff came up, some work came up, so the poor socks were put in time out.

On Monday, Su's good friend came to visit. Her friend asked if I could come over too. (Her ulterior motive was to have me help her with her sock. Her second sock). When Su saw her friend's sock, she was once again excited inspired about knitting socks. But since her socks had been in time out, she couldn't remember what to do next. So she agreed it would be wonderful if I could come over and then they both could pick my brain about knitting socks.

So I took one of the 5 socks (yes, I back up to 5 again)  on over to SuKnitWitty's house and we had a Mini Sock Refresher. I helped her friend with the heel, heel turn, and gusset. And I helped Su figure out where she was (in her house of course!! oh, she meant with her knitting). So we all had an enjoyable afternoon working on socks.

I did finish my first sock, "A-Maze-ing" yesterday morning (instead of blogging).

 IF I manage to get the second one finished before next Wednesday, I'll submit them for the Summer of Color Sock Contest at Simply Sock Yarn Company.

But not to be left out...

...I did work on the foot of the Welcome to Hogwarts sock last night (yes, instead of blogging).

p.s. To SuKnitWitty, What sock yarn?! (hehehehahahaheheheh)
Oh, you mean the sock yarn you brought over to my house for me to store with my sock yarn. I'm sure we can work it out. :-)

That Hogwarts sock is so fancy. The needles are TINY! I'm glad Sue shared the story, too. You guys are funny.

I guess you are talkin' about the Mini Sock Refresher Lesson. Now let me get this straight we're not talkin bout mini-socks, but mini-lessons...cause I guarantee my sock is no mini! It's mighty cool since I'm now ready for toe finish on #1 sock and heel turn on #2! Yay!
PS..Yep, that yarn! Thanks for the no charge storage unit!
