knitting? what knitting?

It is too hot to knit, please send cold beer.

Seriously, I have hardly knit a stitch. I did manage to completely finish (ok ok I did not block it yet) the silk corset top. but of course, the camera batteries are dead. The Razor Cami is coming along slowly. I am trying to make the top a little more bra friendly, but my first attempt was not quite to my liking so I frogged back about 4 inches to try again. I am also dealing with the fact that I am quickly running out of the color I started it in and may not have enough to finish. Fuckety fuck fuck.
I am feeling the urge to start something new...I think it just may be socks for The Gaming One. After much thought, I have decided I am not going to knit him a cardigan although he says he wants one. Why not? 1. He never wears sweaters- not even in winter. 2. He wants a plain stockinette stitch cardigan (boring) 3. He is 6'7 so it would take me months to finish it.
I broke the news to him gently, and offered to make him socks instead. I should be able to finish them in about the same time it would take me to knit a top for myself. He has the biggest feet I have ever seen...10.5" around the ball of foot, 11.5" from heel to toe. And ladies what you hear about big feet is true! *wink* they need the big socks! tee hee!
Only 3 days until our 5 day family reunion in the mountains! I cannot wait! I hope to have lots of time for knitting, much red wine and lots of togetherness!
