I am happy to report that my socks are done!
Sorry for the crappy pic. I also finished some wine with those lovelies, so I wasn’t too concerned at the time about how the picture looked. I am very happy with how they turned out – especially after I had to rip back the first sock several times due to problems with gauge and fit. The colors pooled a bit after I turned the heel, but I actually kind of like it like that. During my first go round there was no striping at all on the cuffs and it looked kind of neat. But I’ve grown to love the stripes and the socks are very warm and comfy. I used Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock yarn which I really enjoyed working with. Next up I’ll be trying out some Blue Moon Fiber Arts’ Socks That Rock yarn, and I am very excited! But, before I can cast on any of that I have about umpteen other projects to work on.
In other news, I went to Target yesterday with my mother and sister and the baby and we spent some time just looking around. While passing through the cat supplies we spied something, something unbelievable. Ties for cats. And not only that, a giraffe head hat for cats. Well now, who on earth would buy such a thing?
Milo in his tie. Milo would like to destroy me for humiliating him this way, but he is too hungry.
Sushi doesn’t seem to mind.
Hey don’t look at me that way. At least I didn’t buy them the giraffe hat. (I couldn’t – my mother did).
