top 10 things i could (should?) be doing at this moment as opposed to taking pictures of and blogging about my norwegian stockings:

1. knitting christmas presents
2. wrapping christmas presents
3. writing copy for my clients (oh yeah, that should probably be number one.)
4. cleaning the kitchen
5. doing laundry
6. calling my mother (oops, sorry mom, i meant THAT should be number one.)
7. clearing the piles of crap off my desk
8. paying bills
9. letting the dog out
10. getting myself another cup of coffee

of course, there is the number one thing i would rather be doing...and that is working on the damn things. i'm a little disappointed in my color choices now that the pattern is emerging. why didn't i pick something a little more girly? i guess i was thinking the charcoal gray would go with more stuff. like i am so gonna wear these with everything in my closet. the green and cream actually would have looked verrry cool with my new favorite color, peacock blue. think i'll go get myself that cup of coffee now.

The grey is really pretty. I am so envious of these socks that everyone is knitting.

they look great - i'm so impressed with everyone's intarsia (or is it fair isle?) skill out there. i'm too chickent to try it.

I think you need to move the dog walking to number one, or is it number 2?!

Though you cant work on them, they are at least nice to look at! I better get back to knitting, I mean cleaning!!

I think your colors are good. I picked sedate colors for my Norwegian knits, wishing I picked something girly, but it's one of those things where what you want is not what you need. Anyway, you can always make another pair!
