First: The first pair of socks I made for myself (the 3rd pair I knitted), was involved in a battle with the evil washing machine monster, and didn't make it out alive.
I posted a pic of it on my BLOG
I used a superwash wool to make them (LL shepherd sport) and I washed them in the gentle cycle. I suppose I wore them out to the point where the under toe area was too thin to handle the machine.
Second: I want to sit down and knit. But I can't. I've tried 3 times so far this morning, and each time, I get a row done and then start falling asleep. I'm too tired to knit and it SUCKS.
