two dogs one sock

Sock #1 from the Mountain Colors Family sock pattern is complete. I'm teaching a sock class in a few weeks and I wanted to at least get one sock done as a sample for the store.

The dogs were quite helpful with the last minute knitting this morning. They even wanted to be involved in the picture taking. Shortly after this picture was taken the sock went for a joy-ride around the yard. Aside from being a bit slobbered on it was no worse for wear.

I managed to steer away from my normal crafting ADD while working on this sock. My half finished beaded necklace has been calling my name and my new stamps and inks have been staring at me from across the room, but I have held firm. Thankfully my goal was just to get one sock done otherwise I don't think I could have lasted much longer.

I know some people that won't start a new project until the one they are working on is complete, I am definitely not one of those people. The more projects going on at once the better. At least I have proven that when push comes to shove I can set a deadline and stick to it. Now I get to reward myself with finishing my beaded necklace, or making cards, or starting that new felted bag project, or whatever else pops into my mind.......
