And I'm out...

Well, I came close but I'm out of the competition now for Sock Madness2. As of the time the 12th place finisher in my division posted their photo I was not quite to here:
Missed it by that much!

(Please excuse the ugly toes - I usually wear socks well into May so don't need to worry about pedicures. Maybe I should get one... For sure before I do any more partial sock photos.)

The FoUI* and I have already had our post-mortem and have a better plan of attack for next year. In the mean time I now get to knit the rest of these socks, and the future patterns in a much more leisurely way. I've had a lot of fun competing but I think really, I'm at least as much relieved as disappointed if not more so. I know the FoUI is more disappointed than I am which is super sweet of him.

I'm off to chill out for a bit now. I'll be back with other knitting in a couple of days.

*The Fount of Useless Information aka my DH. Also known by the longer name "The FoUIaaP" (The Fount of Useless Information and also Puns) at times. He really does know all sort of random, generally useless, info. It comes in handy every now and again though. The puns, not so much...

Hm, in my relationship with DH, I think I would be the FoUI (not so much with the puns, though).

I love that yarn -- did you dye it?

Sorry about your being out -- that is, if you're sorry.

I'm also in no-pedicure land. For me it is a place of permanent residence. I just can't be bothered.

Doh! Great try - and nice socks : )

Well...I'm sorry you're out. But I can imaging that it will be nice to slow down the knitting pace a bit and make some leisurely sock progress.

Fount of useless information...love that!!! Everyone needs a Fount in their lives.

Oh, that's too bad - so close! At least you can slow down and enjoy the sock knitting now. I've just (last night!) finished a really big project that was hanging over my head, so maybe I'll get a chance to try some of these later socks.

A valiant effort to be sure!

I'm just wondering . . . . If DH's useless info is sometimes useful, does that mean he is a font of mostly useless info that is sometimes useful (FoUItisSU)?
