So I have this thing about starting projects and not finishing, especially if I have to knit a pair -- today in a mighty show of self-discipline, I, who really was inspired to make a gift for my cousin's 5 children (all under 7) by the post of knitted veges and food -- https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=308961.0 -- decided I needed to free up my #4 double points and instead of just ripping off the second sock (about 1/3 of the way done) and casting on a carrot, as I would have in my less-enlightened days ( Wink), I forced myself to finish the little pink acrylic sock.  Which was a pain in the you-know-what.  Especially since I was so impatient to get it off the needles that I messed up a couple times and had to frog Sad   So, not because these are perfect or cool or anything, but because they are evidence of my new leaf being turned, I present the socks (from this free pattern: http://www.valleycafe.com/knitting/sock-pattern.html) along with a little wizard finger puppet from a pattern out of Meg Leach's book that had been on the #2 double points forever that I finished up right after, so that I can really feel justified in casting on the carrot.

I am now going to cook supper for some hungry people and then begin carroting -- Thanks for listening to my ramble and  looking at my pics.

Yay for following through!!! I have so many half finished projects laying around. It's quite depressing at times. lol And it's a pain when all my needles are in use. Love the wizard!!! Uber cute Smiley My son is lowing Harry Potter right now. He'd love one. Once again congrats on finishing up some projects. I think I may be inspired Smiley

Thanks!  And, with a drum roll, I present the carrot!
