Good Morning ...

Okay ... so I'm not doing so good in the blogging area again. I've been feeling a little down and confused ... that's nothing new ... but I think about blogging ... I just don't usually do it.
I've been trying to knit on the first-round socks for Sock Madness 5. I'm hoping to get them finished in time, but I'm not sure I will. They are a little more snug than I had hoped, but they should fit someone! My son's been wanting another pair of socks for quite a while; they will probably go to him.
I'm also still knitting on a pair of socks for my friend pollywoggg (*note to self to remember to link her later!). I'm knitting them in Knit Picks Stroll Duchess Heather and using the Khotan pattern. I can't remember right off if I'd blogged about them before or not, so this might be repeat info. I'm working on the heel flap, though they've taken a back seat right now to the SM5 socks. Sorry!! :(
I also started a pair of Embossed Leaves in Malabrigo Persia for my mom. This is the first time I've used this yarn ... and I have to agree with everyone! It's such a nice yarn to work with! I hope they won't wear through to soon, as this yarn doesn't have nylon. I think they will be just fine for mom, though.
I've decided to try something to lose weight. I won't comment more about it here now, but if all goes well, I will say more in a couple of weeks ...
If anyone reads this, please keep me in your prayers!:)
