ambivalence

Feeling ambivalent about a gift recipient really does put a drag on the gift knitting. I still love my sister, but I'm not feeling terribly motivated to knit this second sock. Partly because, I'm being lulled by how quickly the first sock progressed after I finished the calf increases. The rest of the sock took a week to knit! This cast-on has been sitting around nearly that long. I'd love to have this bad boy done before we go down the shore next Wednesday. Think I can do it?
See, if this is done by next Wednesday, I can plan on taking only "for me" knits to the Shore for our mini-vacation. I'd like to bring just Serrano, Josephine (if the yarn gets here in time), and one of the two pairs of socks I've started for myself over the last year. Granted, I never knit as much on vacation as I think I will, but this is what I want to have with me.
B continues to exhibit progress on the potty front. Only 1 accident at school and none at home. That's my big boy!
Funny story. I got an e-mail from a marketing firm saying that they love my blog and wanted me to review a product. Luvs diapers. I pointedly wrote back that if they were truly reading my blog, they'd know that we're in the midst of potty training and don't plan on buying any diapers. I got a nice response back, so it was a real person and not just spam.
On my trip next weekend, I wonder if Hubby will let me go here as a birthday gift.

Hee hee hee--that's pretty darn funny about the diaper thing... (And remember, when B is done, you won't have another diaper to change...I'll have to do the whole thing over again in another year...)

And I know what you mean...those socks I was making for that student last year--the kid I didn't like--those puppies took FOREVER...but most of that was only in my mind...

I must swear too much-I never get any offers. :)

I don't know how to knit socks. I'm thinking that's a good thing.
