I have a pitiful start on my Nokniswemo, (Marseilles, if you are curious here it is on my Flickr). Why? I really don't know why I decided to cast on for another pair of socks.

I became involved with these:

Marigold sock #1
Marigold Socks by Pamela Wynne

This is a really fun pattern to knit, part of why it wasn't painful to rip back 3 times! First, I tried to reincarnate my Chevron Scarf, but switching colors every 8th row (the pattern repeat) didn't look right. Then, I tried repeating the colors every other row, but I didn't like this either. Then I tried with a more colorful Koigu (here), but it just looked a little crazy with all of those colors and the ridges of the purl rows in the pattern. So, I re-cast on with the current yarn (Koigu KPPM color P812) and finally I am happy (very happy - these are great socks, I highly recommend impulsively casting on like I did).

Have a nice weekend - I can't believe Thanksgiving is next week already! (It is a week early this year I guess)

will you knit me a carrying case for my otoscope/ophthalmoscope? the plastic case is too big to fit in my bag and so i'm using an orphan sock right now as a pseudo-storage container. i can give you suggestions for colors.
oh btw, i'd prefer it not to arrive in the form of a holiday gift--tatters
