Socks for my pal
After being excited about the yarn I found for my sockapaloolza pal, I messed the yarn up. Ruined it. Yeah. let's not talk about it. So, I searched some more for the right yarn and was just not finding anything. Then on Sunday, as I was searching through my stash, I realized I had some NatureSpun that would work. Sitting right under my nose the whole time. Then I realized this yarn would also work great for the Friday Harbor socks (knitting on the road knit-along). I wanted to do this sock toe-up and re-figured the numbers some. Here is the result:
Ignore the little blue string by the toe. That's my life-line. Having those makes it so much easier to frog and re-do or change the patterns.
Is this sock-pal worthy? I can't tell my thoughts on choosing this, because my sock-pal may figure it out. I do want her to love her socks though.
I thought I would also include a silly pic of my son. This was at the wedding (back in June). He was the ring-bearer and I admit I was worried he would not sit still during the ceremony. Silly me. This is my creative kid. Upon finding himself bored, he simply took off his shiny shoes and had fun looking at himself.
Thankfully this was one of the favorite parts of the wedding for my brother and his new wife. And it has become one of my favorite pictures of my little boy who is growing up way too fast. Sigh. I promised I wouldn't cry this year when he starts 2nd grade. But as soon as that bus pulls away, I think there will be tears.
