I'm too socksy

I'm missing my Baby Bird's wedding. Nateasa and Kris are in Iowa all married, and I'm stuck here broke as hell. It's very frustrating, but I will be lucky enough to see the newlyweds when they head to MI in the coming weeks. The pictures on Facebook look awesome; N & K look fantasticly in love and very well dressed to boot. I wish them all the best, and can't wait to see the tons of pictures taken at the reception tonight.

I've decided that I would venture into sock knitting this weekend. Here's the progress so far:
the first 8 rows after cast-on
progress... those needles are so damn tiny
I know I'm immature, but the way that the self-striping yarn worked out, the heel looks like a nipple on a boob. Also, in case you're curious, most socks are knit from the top down to the toe; some patterns are toe-up patterns. This particular pattern I am working is heel-out. I've never seen anything like it, but when I saw it on Knitty, it amazed me.

Well, that's it for now. Maybe TODAY is the day I begin pic-a-day/craft-a-day, now that my internet is more reliable (no thanks to Charter, and MUCH thanks to my dad).
