More Madness, Round 3

Well, I didn't make it through Round 2 of Sock Madness 2, but I'm still trying to "knit along at home", but I seem to be falling further and further behind.  LOL.  Everyone else has knit up these beautiful socks, all soft and yarnilicious, and I'm constantly amazed at the speed with which folks whip them up.

I’m not-so-much loving my socks, however.  By itself, the yarn’s ok (Dream In Color Baby Lace Weight in “Blue Lagoon” and “Ruby River”).  Doubled, not so much ok.  And the pattern and my yarn just are NOT playing nice together.  While I’ve got gauge (on my size 2 Addi Turbos), the fabric is stiff - not as soft & squooshy as I’d hoped. Not to mention that I’ve never been very fond of working with two strands together. I’m still only this far on sock #1:

So, I guess I’m “Slippin’ Away”…

I was thinking of something with apologies to Paul Simon, but then I thought better of it…LOL… Now, I’m thinking more of just how slippery a frog can be…::sigh::….

Oh, and I'd like to thank all who voted for me during the Round 2 Creativity Awards.  It seems I've won!  Woo Hoo!  Thank you all!  (Pics of the prize when it arrives!)
