This never happens. I am never in the mood to knit socks. Last week I kind of dove into trying to write my own pattern, and completed the first iteration. I will still work on the pattern, and I want to share it with you in a little while. I don't know why, but after I was done fiddling with my first prototype, I really wanted to knit some socks. So, I cast on these socks called Hugs 'n Kisses, the February 2008 pattern from the Tofutsies Sock Club in the corresponding yarn. You can't really tell by the picture, but the cables make little X's and O's. Get it? Charming!
I went away last weekend to the Baltimore area to attend Megan & Adam's wedding (congrats you guys!). One of the cool things we did was take a little trip to the Baltimore National Aquarium on Saturday before the festivities. It was really cool! Below are some pictures I took from the aquarium. A Moment of Zen, if you will.
