Gambling and Deadline Knitting

Sock roulette was just the most fun gamble ever - especially if the knitter knitting for you finished on time and you have your sock already - ta da! Isn't it fabulous? Look at that cute pixie pointy toe. Beautiful yarn I've never knit with (Socks that Rock) and I've never done a star toe before. Perfect! I hoped that I would get something different to try from this exchange so the gamble definitely paid off for me. Thanks again Pam. The sock I knit finally went in the post today, bad player that I am, photos of that when it has been received. Sorry again Sarah!

So after missing that deadline I've now realised that I have three more deadline knits all for the same weekend in March - the wedding gift cushions, shrug (part of my wedding outfit) and the Poms which have been adopted as a Mother's Day gift. "Why do I do this to myself?" she shrieks and runs off to get knitting.

The socks are very cute. I hope you get all your knitting done. I've got loads of deadline knitting to do too, I feel a bit panicky about it though, which is making me even slower!

Good luck with the deadlines. I'm knitting with STR at the moment too - my favourite sock wool.

[Thank you for the lovely comment about "pause for breath".]

Thanks for your comments, the green is the new black is by Tamsin Blanchard. Although I have just finished the Thrifty book by India knight, another good read.

The sock looks lovely! But I feel for you on the deadline knitting front - deadlines always make me want to anything other than knit!
