An evening of knitting and LOST

I finished up the last disc of Season 3 of LOST (while knitting, of course!) and was happy to see that all the Season 4 episodes are still up on abc - so I'm working on those now too. It's a partial snow day so it's the perfect time to knit socks and watch LOST.

Java loves to help me by plunking herself down on my desk on top of everything:

She just climbed up on the desk and got all comfy on top of a knitted shawl, two sock bags, three skeins of sock yarn, a pattern, and a skein of handspun. And since she was displaying the BFF sock progress so perfectly I decided to take a picture.

All that LOST watching means another pair of socks:

Pattern: Yankee Knitter #29 (these were knit for my class)
Yarn: Regia Design Line by Kaffe Fassett in "Landscape Storm"
Started: 1/20/08
Finished: 2/22/08

I just had to look up the color name, and how appropriate!

I'm glad to be adding another pair of plain stockinette socks in a tough yarn to my collection - as much as I love knitting fancy patterns I keep coming back to my 75/25 wool/nylon stockinette socks when it comes time to decide what to wear.

And tomorrow it's off to SPA!

Listening to: Every You Every Me ~ Placebo, Wish ~ Nine Inch Nails

I have that same Regia! And I've been watching Season 4 of Lost today online. How funny. Have fun at SPA. I was thinking about going, but decided to avoid temptation. :-)

I still haven't gotten time to get into LOST- someday, though!

You are seriously a sock knitting machine. They look great!

Lovely socks!

And of course Java will plunk down on top of your desk mess. It's mostly made of yarn, which means it's the perfect nest.

See... I can't quite watch Lost & knit (although you can probably knit socks in your sleep by now) because the story lines are a bit complicated and I don't want to miss anything.

BTW - I've succumb to pressure, I've started a pair of socks myself!
