I said I would do it! / Falling in love part 5

So, I was so intrigued by the Falling in Love experience that I set out to do it two more times. I bough MORE Colinette Jitterbug yarn. The red colourway is called Fire (#71) and the cream/pink/green colourway is called called Marble (#88). The Marble one is going to match the Twinkle sweater that I am making, because if the pink flecks. But, I promise that I will start the sweater at home, and make the sock on my travels (consecutively), so hopefully, they will be done around the same time.

Here is the progress of my Falling in Love sock. I was so happy to be able to get through the gusset increases and the heel flap.

So, after I finished the heel and joined the round again, I realized that I forgot to cross a cable on the left side. It so happens that this cable should have been crossed before the heel flap was done. Shoot.... Why didn't I check it before??? Well.... I was kinda half asleep. So, it is back to frogging and doing it all over again. Aaarrrghhhh!!!!

I went to Nancy's house yesterday for a BBQ, and felt so out of place because I forgot my knitting at home. There were some members there from the Noble Knitters meeting having a blast, and my hands were itching because I wasn't knitting something. Do you get the feeling that I don't like being left out of the group? Maybe it is an only child thing. I don't want to be lonely anymore. That is the reason that I was half knitting/half sleeping. I was trying to overcompensate for missing out. I had a lot of fun. Nancy, we must do it again!!!! And, I will keep a project in my car just in case we ever have another impromptu knitting moment.

Thanks for coming! There were just a few cupcakes left this morning so I brought them to work with me where they have been enjoyed!

I love that yarn. I think I may break my diet and head down to seaport very, very soon...

Mmmm...Jitterbug - nice choices!
I had to chuckle at your post about missing out on the impromptu knitting...sometimes I forget the essential things at home because I'm so caught up in making sure I have knitting things to bring along! :)

The socks are coming along beautifully!
