Panic

After a rash of starting and frogging new projects, I’ve started to Panic that I won’t be able to complete my 12 sweaters for NaKniSweMoDo this year! I’ve only completed 10 and do have 2 on the needles, but still … I’ve had to frog a few lately that I hoped would count in this KAL, but no such luck.

Meanwhile, I did complete something:

arm

Yes, it’s my friend ARM’s socks! You may remember that he has begrudgingly driven me to many yarn stores in the L.A. area and in Portland, and one day asked me to make him some socks. I completed those socks, but then gave them to my dad! ARM asked again about his socks, a couple of times, and seemed really upset when I told him about my dad, so I started another pair right before I saw him last time. But then I ran out of yarn on the second toe! You know I have over 750 balls of yarn, so I pulled out one ball of black yarn, one ball of gray variegated and did a little slip-stitch magic to complete a pretty darned good toe, if I do say so myself:
