Extra! Extra! Read all about it!

My goal right now- barring a certain level of craziness- is to post twice a week. I managed that last week; so consider this your extra for the week.
Next week, there will be a little extra as well- I'll be going on a tour from my chair. A Blog Tour. I'll be starting the Tour on Wednesday at Knit-A-While. So if you want a little extra, that's where you'll find it. I'll try to post here when and where the next stop on the tour will be. There'll be some pattern giveaways along with my babble, so head over for a visit. Wednesday, at Knit-A-While.

And if you'd like to participate in by hosting a stop on the tour, contact Ida at . Or if you are a designer or indie dyer, and would like to do a blog tour, you can also contact Ida at the address above.

Back page story:
I did fix the 2nd sock. I can now get it on my foot and I am pleased with it. I am now in the process of frogging the leg of the 1st sock to fix it.

I must confess, I was unable to stick to my original design. I'd already knit it 1.5 times, and like I said, I was done with it. So I adjusted it just a bit, and the recipient will be getting an original, b/c this design adjustment will not be written down for repetition. It's not that different. But it's enough for me to notice and feel like I'm not knitting this pattern endlessly. ;)
My problem right now is forcing myself to put this sock back on the needles before I cast on something else on those needles.

I only have one pair of most needle sizes. US 0's included. There's a good reason for that. No, 2 good reasons for that. 1)I don't have extra money to get more than one pair of the nice needles that I want. 2) it forces me to complete projects and not have WIP's all over the house when I get startitis. Well, at least not WIP's on the same size needles!! ;)
So at the moment, I need the 0's to finish this sock I'm frogging- but there is a new design I need/want to get going on that requires the 0's. The yarn is sitting on my shelves next to my knitting chair begging me to cast it on before I finish this fix. I'm trying to be strong......but I may have to do a swatch really quick. Just a swatch....

I'm afraid I have too many needles. And too many WIPs lol.
