Slap to the wrist

I can officially declare myself a terrible blogger. I'm sorry that I've managed to go 2 weeks without any new posts. I know, it's my blog and I don't have to post, but I feel obligated to because people actually read this thing.

I've finished my scarf and I'm almost done with the first sock of the Labyrinth socks. I've started some socks for a coworker hospitalized in ICU (he's why I've been somewhat absent lately), and I've padded my stash a bit.

I hate to leave  you photo-less, but I don't have much on my work computer. Thankfully, I uploaded some stash pics to Ravelry last night before DH hogged the computer until bedtime.

This is the Lacy Grrl I ordered from Tempted. The yarn is so freaking soft, it was really just what I needed to help take my mind off of my coworker's struggles. It's a much deeper purple than what I could photograph, but I could not get the lighting conditions just right. It is destined to become a beautiful Geodesic Cardigan. Gnome and I are going to do it together as a KAL. Let me tell you, finding a copy of Winter/Spring 2010 Knitscene was hard! Interweave is sold out of backissues, and no one seemed to have it in stock. Thankfully, I was able to snag 2 copies at L&B yarn in Norman.

Oh, and I get to do sekret knitting! The recipient reads my blog, so I'll be a mean tease and post a yarn pic. I'm not going to post any project pictures until it has arrived at it's destination. Meet Shibui Sock Finch:

I'm expecting the consolation prize lite sock club shipment to come from The Loopy Ewe today, but I don't know if I should post it this weekend or not. I don't want to ruin anyone's surprise. It's titled "Don't be blue," and I really hope it's blue. Ya'll know that's my favorite color. I love blue.

I don't think you're a terrible blogger :)

Yay for finishing your scarf! I can't wait to see pictures. I'm looking forward to seeing the Cardigans you and Gnome make once they're all done too! (I'm looking forward to progress pictures too :D)

I laughed when I saw your secret project LOL! I'm guessing since you asked about the yarn on Monday that you're referring to me. DH agrees with me that it is a very nice yellow color, so no worries :) And yes, that is a tease lol. He said, "Oooh, it's sock yarn!"

I hope the "Don't be Blue" yarn is blue too :) I can't wait to see pictures.

Oh, and I wanted to say that purple for your cardigan is gorgeous! It looks really soft in the picture.
