Deadlines Looming

Deadlines are looming on the horizon, so this evening I got down to business.  With one Sockapal-2-za sock completed -- remember all that knitting I did on Labor Day -- and the second sock half way finished, nona cranked into high gear in a valiant attempt to finish the sock by tomorrow's deadline.  Did I mention that bookclub is next week and we're reading Devil In the White City, which I'm just starting?  Deadlines -- quite inspiring.

  1. First sock in the pair, finished and waiting for her mate.
  2. iPod playing the audio book of The Devil in the White City -- I decided to listen to this month's book so I could keep knitting.  By the way, doesn't my 1st generation iPod look big and hunky compared to the slick new iPod-nano?

  3. Second sock, half way complete.  You can just feel my concentration level as I churn this one out -- I've got the lace pattern down cold!

  4. The Elfine sock pattern designed by the talented and fashionable Anna -- I highly recommend this pattern!

Go Nona, go! Those I-Pod Nanos are just asking to be shuffled into my Sunday paper and accidentally thrown away. Or stepped on. Or sat on. I hope you get that second sock done- I'm terrible at second-sock-itis.

OOh that ipod looks great! I am still waiting to buy one I am hoping someone might take pity on me and get me one for my birthday ( shame he doesn't read my blog)

Go, go, go. I just finished my last stitch of my Sockapaltwoza socks last night at 10:30. No time to block them. E-books and podcasts are the perfect combination with knitting. I'm so glad now that my husband got my an i-pod. I didn't even know I wanted one. Good luck on the socks.

I want a Nano! Do love the sock and I like the book, too.

My goodness, I didn't know about the free laser engraving for the iPod nano. I guess I really DO need to throw out my mini right away! (Actually--and I'm not usually like this--I want a nano. I really want a nano.)

I love listening to the audiobooks while knitting, though I have actually developed a sore butt from sitting too long.

Love that sock pattern. The Devil in the White City is my favorite listened to this year.

Nona...that book haunted me for a long time! read it awhile ago. Corolla wedding was beautful! Taught 3 people how to knit hats...hurricane Ophelia was blowing through and we were running to Walmart for knitting needles & yarn! (only place open!). Nona-mom babysat Penny. They loved her.
