First Poly emerges and first sock of the season!

Oh lookie here! The first of my poly's have emerged! Soon I will have two dozen polu moths flopping about! This one is smaller than I expected a male to be and he does not fly very well. Just kinda flops about. Weird.

And I got myself an inkling to do some socks so I started knitting the first of the three pair that I need for this winter in some yarn I have had stashed away since last fall. It is worsted weight, knit on size 6 circulars. I do the after-thought heel so that is why the gusset looks funky.

I have yet to get a response from the person I am supposed to send a fiber goodie package too. Why does this always happen? I sign up with good intentions and I am always welcomed with disappointment on the receiving end. I suppose if I do not hear from this person in a couple of weeks, all I will send is some fiber and nothing extra to fulfill MY obligation in the swap. I can't send anything extra to someone I cannot communicate with and to get to know their likes and dislikes. I hate to disappoint someone but there has not been any activity on this persons blog in months, and I have emailed twice. I await the fiber frenzy moderators comments about my inquiry of whether or not to send anything. I changed my mind, I have plenty of information from the initial email I got. It really sucks that I cannot seem to connect to the person getting my stuff. *pout* Why I continue to try these swaps...is beyond me!

Until next time...

  1. I love that pattern. I am trying to knit socks with regular sock yarn now but I started with worsted. Would you share the pattern? When my girls were little we hatched some Polyphemus moths in a gallon jar. They are so beautiful. My husband brought in a large green Hornworm the other day. It is a Wild Cherry Sphynx Moth Awesome. I have two Rufous Hummers today. Thanks, Bird Girl Goddess of the Plains

  2. Sure thing! I'll put it in the next post. :) Thanks for the positive feedback! It is very much appriciated.


Thanks for the feedback! Most comments will be published right away except for you pathetic spammers who's messages will never see the light of day. If you are offended by having to fill one a "prove you are not a robot" form, my goodness...chill out! It takes two seconds to do and saves me a ton spam to have to filter through and it takes two seconds, MAX. If you are that easily offended, maybe you should simply not comment, and seek some counseling.
