Old Miss

Remember how I said I lost the month of October. This is one of those activities it was lost to. This is me knitting away at an Old Miss Football game. Had I known how much the tickets were, I might have been more appreciative (that's why I love my EB).

I wore the socks today to school. They did not pass the test. Felting beyond anything that I have ever seen before in my life with a huge amount of fuzziness. If I hadn't known better, I would have thought they were angora by the end of the day. As much as I love that yarn, I'm going to have to let it go. Maybe I'll try the sock weight next and see if it makes any difference, although the all knowing mom says its how it was spun...hmmm...

I started a pair of jaywalker socks from magknits today and I'm waiting extremely impatiently for my sweet sheep sock yarn. I'm hoping it'll arrive tomorrow. Reality of the mail in Mississippi says more like Monday. Meanwhile I'll watch season 4 of Scrubs and knit.

Dear Yankee girl,
It is "Ole Miss", not "Old Miss". If you are gonna participate in the ritual you can't try to nice it up by making it grammatically correct.
