Finally, Some Knitting

I finished the baby socks for my co-worker, I think they turned out cute.
I used some left overs from my sock stash, my own made up pattern on size 2 addi's.

I also managed to start the Argosy scarf. I think I made pretty good progress on it for just a few hours of knitting. Here's the beginnings of it hanging in my Russian Sage.

This is my whopping one day weekend so it's back to work tomorrow. I am attempting to get some laundry done and do a little cooking so that I don't have to during the week. The tat is healing well but it's going in to the itchy stage and like chicken pox, NO scratching.

Here I am starting the Argosy scarf, wearing my sweet tie dye ensemble.

Looks like Sonya tagged me for the 7 random things thingy

1. I am a compulsive rule breaker, just the little things but I hate to move with the herd.

2. I didn't start college until I was 35 (see above).

3. My older sister Gus taught me to knit when I was 8 years old.

4. I hate purling, English or Continental.

5. I went through a level 5 hurricane (Hugo) on the Island of St. Croix in 89'.

6. I now have a total of 3 tattoos with more planned.

7. Both myself and Mr. Larj are left handed.

In reference to #1 I am going to break the rules and not tag anyone. Everyone have a great week!!

Awww, these little sockies are ever so cute - and your Argosy is coming along beautifully too, great colors!
What a cool video of you knitting, I'd love to be there with you now sitting in the shade and knitting along - perfect indeed! And your 7 things were highly interesting to read through - I'm *so* with you on #1, and I hate purling too ;)))

Love the socks - lucky baby! Your Tat looks great - really pretty colors. Will they stay as bright?
I had also begun Argosy but abandoned it for an unknown reason. Maybe I'll get going again on it. I hope you had a good day off -
