Skip to My Lou Socks

August 2, 2013


The pattern is in Summer 2013 of Sockupied.  You will note that there is very little yarn left.   I had made a premmie cap.  There was only 75 grams left.  Out of curiosity, I weighed another skein of Tofutsies that was supposedly full.   It only weighed 95 grams.  A little food for thought. 

So. Can you see the mistake?  It’s on the leg of the left sock.  It comes from knitting late at night when I would normally be sleeping. 

I’ve already started another pair of socks.  I thought about going back to the anniversary shawl, but it seems I’m still in sock mode.  I found a nice pattern from Socks That Rock and the yarn is Sockcotta in shades of tan.  Yes.  Tan.  It happens.  


This is going to be my next purse.  And, of course, I had to make a matching change purse.  Is that too cute?  Sometimes I make myself sick.


Second Decent Day

July 26, 2013

Last night we slept with the windows open.  It’s so great to have the air conditioning off and real air flowing through the house.   Yesterday, it was raining in the morning, but today we were able to walk down to the pier over the river.  It’s been a while.  It’s hard to do anything outside when the air reminds me of warm dog breath.  You big dog owners what I mean.  I’ve also managed to do some weeding.  Yeah.  I really should buy some more flowers.


Another sock.  This time I used Tofutsies and a Sockupied pattern.  The skein wasn’t full, but I have three partial skeins that co-ordinate so I figured I could make one for each foot.  No . I don’t have three feet.  Thank you very much.  I have enough trouble with the two that I have.  Hmm.  Would they charge me more for a pedicure if I had three feet?  Anyway, one sock weighed 36 grams and I have 38 grams leftover.  Another Yeah.  A good digital scale is a godsend when you throw stuff together the way that I do.
