Funky socks

There is something about me that many of you won't know and it is that I am a secret sock fancier. I love funky and unusual socks and anew pair can do wonders to cheer me up. I have no idea why as they are just a thing to put on the feet, but they make me feel all cosy and secure.

With this in mind and the fact that there are loads of gorgeous sock wools around I decided to have a go, but me being me I didn't check the tension was correct. The first pair of stripy ones which I got from a secret stitcher although lovely would have proudly fitted the Jolly Green Giant and absolutely swamped my tiny feet. My mum is now the proud owner of them but as I haven't seen her wear them I think the word proud is a contradiction in terms. So after much advice I tried again and finished a pair that fitted me tonight and in it you get the double pleasure of seeing a glimpse of my leg-steady everyone out there as I know it is a new experience as they are firmly covered usually but hope you can all cope.

They are absolutely me don't you think and are so warm and toasty and I am pleased and proud that they fit.

Other than that life is hectic with study and more study and the most ill thought out question in the universe for my latest assignment has had me scratching my head for many a day. I thought the last one was bad which is when I posted last but this one was evil and even the tutor thought so too. I am hoping it will be better than the last as I got my worst ever mark and it really was overly waffly. This time I stuck to hard facts and managed to back them up. I know there are areas I could have improved on but that is the same everytime and this course is a massive learning curve and apart from the last assignment is going ok. However I am relieved it is done and are we ever rocketing through this course at a rate of knots-there are also too many slips of paper with the word exam on coming in the post lately-all rather scary.

One other thing to mention is that I so far haven't switched to Google blogger as every time I try it won't let me, which is why when I am replying to posts I have to show as anonymous and then state who I am.

Congrats on the sock finish!!! I LOVE knitting socks, too. They're also fanstastically portable projects.
