Sock Madness is sucking up my soul

Or it's just taking up all my free time. I haven't read a book in over a week. That by itself is crazy (I usually read 4-7 a week, I read fast). What about Sock Madness has been keeping me so busy, you may ask? How about these:

It actually took me almost a week knitting non-stop to make these socks. They are the only Sock Madness socks that I have made for me (doing so has put me even further behind on my gift knitting but I don't care).. Imagine the seagulls from Finding Nemo. These socks are "Mine!" In other news, I am being a horrible giver of gifts to assorted friends and giver of time to other friends. I'm hoping that Kristi will kick my arse in the next round within 24 hours so that I can get on with my life. Did I mention that I'm in the Elite 8 of Sock Madness? That by itself is crazy. It's all because Momma is a rock star (I said that at work today and one of my eighth graders said, "Don't you mean a sock star?") She really is the best person and I am so fortunate to have met her. That's what was really neat about this round of Sock Madness. I really got to know people. I guess that makes all the craziness worth it.

Congratulations on making it through to the elite 8. I know what you mean about perhaps being relieved you get knocked out. I love your socks.

Good socks to keep! These are my favorite of the bunch. I've actually kept all of mine, selfish thing that I am. :)

Why do I have to be the bad guy?! ;)

And those are simply beautiful socks.

Good luck in the next round, LaLa! I too am half wishing that I could be knocked out and get back to a normal life, but I know that when that pattern hits my mailbox I'll be up and running... Was there ever a contest like this before?

WOW! I'm impressed with your reading abilities! These days I prefer to listen to a book on my Ipod and knit so I can kill two birds with one stone. I usually listen to 3-4 books a month.

Great socks! Love the color and the pattern! Sirius Black, eh?
