I should be done with a pair of socks...

But instead am still working on that second sock. If I were a true sock warrior, I would have stayed up all night on Friday and knit the socks and mailed them on Saturday. I am not a true warrior. Even the best assassins can't help it when their backs give them trouble and they don't feel like knitting. No knitting while playing Magic. I did however knit in the car on the way up at least.

Sunday though, the urge to be a competitor kicked in again. I stayed up until 11, frantically turning the heel of the second sock and decreasing the gusset. At 11, I decided that I should go to bed because I had to go into work this morning. If I d0n't make money, I can't buy Magic cards and yarn, and no Magic and no yarn make Knitting Magic Girl a dull girl...

I should have knit during church. I might have been done by this morning if I had. I should have knit during Snakes on a Plane. I really wouldn't have missed much. I should have sent the girl asking me to buy stuff to help her school chorus to leave so that I could finish the sock. Instead I bought cookie dough. Coulda Woulda Shoulda. I may still get the sock mailed out today assuming I can find an hour to finish it. I have 30 minutes worth of breaks that I can use, but my lunch is taken up by the class. I might be able to squeeze some more time in there, you never know.

I just want to get this pair of socks out before I get a pair of socks in the mail. I want to knock out just one person before I get knocked out. I must knit like the wind and forsake all human interaction until the second sock is finished. Oh, you want to see what they look like? Here they are:

Knit on...

Knitting during a movie, good. Knitting during church, bad (though I've been tempted more than once, for sure).
