Work-in-progress Wednesday

from the tweets of Steve Martin:

Can't decide if the word "awesome" even needs an exclamation point. Answer: Yes! It becomes even more awesome!!!!!

@brad9778: I think you were looking for awesomer.


I can't exactly explain why I find this so hilarious, but reading through Steve Martin's collection of tweets and the back-and-forth with his twitter followers had me laughing so hard I cried. It's a short collection and it starts off slowly but there's comedic gold in there.

This work-in-progress Wednesday finds me at the gusset of my second New England sock. When I get to this point in a sock I always feel like it's just a short sprint to the finish. Today's schedule includes lots of transit time for knitting so maybe I can finish it up by end of day? That's my goal - one more February finish. Awesome(r)!!

Happy Leap Day one and all! Check out the links at Tami's Amis to see all the great work being done.

Socks look beautiful! I pulled out some similar coloured yarn on the weekend to design with - but it all go ripped out - it knit up lovely though. Like yours - just paler

I love Steve Martin but didn't know if his book of tweets would be good. Now I'm adding it to my list! :-)

Steve Martin is awesome, have heard of his book. Sound like your enjoying it. The sock is also awesome. Or is that awesomer?
