Too organized?

Is it possible to be too organized these days? I'll let you decide.

Last weekend, I went to Linens 'n Things and got one of these:

And one of these, for variety...:

...and ended up with this:

As I was installing this madness, Jake said, "You know, I wonder how much of your life revolves around socks." I thought that question was probably best left unanswered.

Very exciting news!

I've have some very exciting news to tell you. In just one week (on Saturday, February 16th to be exact), I will start a new job - at Haus of Yarn!!!! If you can't tell, I am extremely excited to have landed, well, my dream job.

My current co-workers think I'm nuts to be leaving the music industry for yarn, but they'll never understand. I'm looking forward to being about a thousand times happier. Last night at the sock knit-a-long, the announcement was made and blogless Jan noted that I had smile on my face the entire night - and she was right. So, I guess it's pretty obvious, but if I were to relate how I feel by using a picture, because afterall, a picture is worth a thousand words, this would be it:

Or, maybe this:

Hee, hee. ;)

Anyways...I hope to see you all there - come and visit often!!

Big smiles,

New socks! Pretty colors!

Here are the pictures of my Embossed Leaves Socks I promised you:

Yes, they are sitting atop a bush. I finally realized that my pictures turn out better if I take them outside. Anyways, here's a close-up:

I love these socks, and I plan to make many, many more. I only made one small modification...starting the ribbing with a knit through the back loop instead of the purl, so that the knit ridge lines up with the center of the first leaves. The fit of these is great, since they're somewhat ribbed, but the Jitterbug I used is also divine. I'm pretty sure I'll have to have every color it comes in. Oh, dear.

That's really all I can report for right now, except for this (this one's for Leah):

I'm really not anal retentive. I swear.
