Know that you'll be my downfall

I've been stalking the mailbox again. Lurking around the corner, just waiting for that package to arrive . . .

Okay, so I do have more of a life than literally standing at the mailbox, waiting. But I have been just DYING for this package to come. Well all I can say is, it was worth it! My Rockin' Sock Club kit finally arrived. I hate to spoil the fun for anyone wanting to be surprised, so if you want to see the kit, just click here. I know, I know, I'm making you work for it today.

Let me just tell you that I am totally in love with Socks that Rock yarn and it is so hard not to go online and order some more right this second with my new 10% off coupon (thank goodness for silly bank errors). It's also so hard to continue with all of the other projects that I have on the needles. I just want to rip into my new skein of sock yarn and get going (no worries, I will rip gently into it). I really swore that I was going to finish at least one project before starting this new one, but I can't stop myself. Socks that Rock is clearly my downfall.

Oh yeah, and thanks for all of the sweet words about Harvard. It still hasn't really sunk in yet, but it's getting there. I'm planning to move to Harvard Square over the summer, and I'm just beginning to think about that change, so clearly I'm not yet quite able to wrap my head around being a student again and doing it at this school in particular.

Squee - I got my Sock Club kit today, too! Right now I'm just going to pet it, and use the key ring. Then read over the pattern to see if I want to knit that one.

That is fantastic about Harvard! I'm sure you'll get back into student life pretty quickly. My daughter will be at Northeastern in the fall, so maybe we can meet up sometime when we're visiting.

My kit FINALLY arrived to day, with my very first STR, and I am so, so excited! It is gorgeous and so delightfully squishy! I think I am going to use my coupon soon -- I'm making my fiance buy me STR for my birthday!

Oh, harvard square. Sigh. Love the yarn - I was desperate to sign up for the club but couldn't afford it this year... sucks. So I'll live vicariously through you, if you don't mind! :)h

Congrats on Harvard. It is a bit surreal, isn't it? :) Had a friend go there for undergrad and he felt that way.

As for STR, I did the heel with the 1's and am now using 0's for the foot and will then go Back to 1's for the heel and finally to 2's for the sock leg. That's what Kaci had to say on the RSC site here.
I'm not positive I'll use a 2 for the leg, I'll see how that starts knitting up.

Good luck!
