mildly gratified...

last night i was supposed to go to a gathering but i had worked so hard on the pensky all day i was exhausted and brain dead by about 4pm, so i stayed home instead and finished this:

and was in bed by 9! hopeless.

i am pretty happy with my first patonyle ankle sock, i would probably go another half centimetre in the foot and more than 10 rounds between rib and heel, but it did only take 4 days (about 2 hours a day i guess), and it looks good with my fancy footwear, n'est pas?

sorry, no rosered glamourpuss shoes here :) i was going to cast on the second one straight away but decided to delay that gratification until i am finished what i need to do on pensky. i will try and finish trents contrast patonyle first instead.

apart from some slight flooding issues i have been glad of the rain as it provided the perfect environment to work hard, and if i do the same today there is a chance i could be finished my revisions today. if im lucky i will get to the formatting of the bibliography as well, but im using endnote and its a pain so....

meanwhile, this is what princess possum does when its raining:

there is something that i think they call the sun out at the moment so i am going to take them both for a walk and then come back and get stuck into it.

fingers crossed.

The anklets are adorable, and obviously the perfect accessory for pink crocs!

I hear you on the exhaustion. It's no wonder! Good luck with the rest of it today!

Oh my eyes, my eyes, all that pink too much! (heh!). Gee you must knit fast - there's no way I could do socks, even smallish socks like these, in 8 hours!!

Sun? What is this 'sun' you speak of? Hsven't seen it for days! Love the anklets - but do beware - Crocs eat 100% wool socks - I imagine Patonyle will be OK, but be careful - I've had to darn some of the socks I made of beautiful Happy Spider wool because my Crocs massacred them!

Lufferly sock!!

Rainy days are cosy working-inside days, aren't they? Something very nice about them. I like Possum's answer, though, best of all...

pretty!!! Glad to see the pensky file isn't affecting your overall productivity!

The sock looks great! I too have wondered about the inclusion of the baby poo colour in that particualar patonyle. I think it must be an attempt to tone down the pinkness!

Love the sock! I hope the sun comes out for you... and for me, too since it's been raining here for a few days as well. Not my favorite kind of weather, but at least we have knitting to cheer us up!
