Living life to the fullest
Roughing it up a bit..

Shorty Blues

Blueshorty_1I had to do it. It was driving me crazy. I went 3 weeks without picking up my needles, but Monday afternoon, I broke down. I needed a bit of a break from loom knitting. Although the looming deadline is upon me, I just couldn't keep going without getting some "me-knitting-time" in there. I found my escape in a pair of quick shorty socks, inspired by all the cute little shorty socks from KnitPastis.

Margene Shortybluesexpressed my sentiments on her latest post about socks...they are my escape to paradise!  I find that whenever I need to escape or to get a sense of fulfillment, I pick up my little needles and some gorgeous handyed yarn and a sense of relief quickly feels my knitting heart. 

The yarn called my name from the drawer...it said, "knit me, knit me, I can bring you a sense of peace and fulfillment". As I knitted each tiny little stitch, I felt like a vase being filled with happiness. Happiness that now I can disperse around little by little.

Now, I can go back to my daily schedule loom knitting...looming deadline No. 1 is around the corner!

Oh my Gosh!You are too funny! Go over to the KAL and post these fabulous socks you knitted!! Go ahead... you knitted the same style and were inspired!! This is my favorite blue right now! You should have told me silly that you were aching to make them. I would have mailed you a ball of Cascade Fixations in a New York Minute! LOVE YA!

I know I've had socks on the brain, so I'm not surprised that they've cured your looming blues! ;)
