I knew it would eventually happen. One of my wool socks got caught in the laundry. Washed and DRIED. So these socks that used to fit me
now fit #1 son.....
You'd think this would be ok since it still fits somebody in the family. Well as soon as he put the wool sock on he started to complain it was itchy. He doesnt like them. So I will wash and DRY the second sock, hope they match in size and put them in my CIC pile. They will keep SOMEBODY's foot warm!
Of course they were one of my favorite socks, they fit GREAT. However this has me rethinking my sock stash. I'm REALLY worried abt my Koigu and some of my hand dyed sock yarns. Do I use them and hope it doesnt happen again (I already take care to make sure they don't get in the regular laundry but as we can see, mistakes happen) or do I find other good homes for them?? I'll have to think abt this one.....
Meanwhile I've been doing some charity knitting. I finished another hat.
There is a reason I mostly knit socks.....
I used the pattern from Debbie Bliss's book for a hat that is supposed to fit a 3-6 MONTH baby. Blech. I'm not happy with it, but I think it will be fine for a 2 y/o with the ribbing folded up. I used up my Lambs Pride wool, ran out and used some Germaintown brown wool. I had fun making the hat but I'm disappointed that it didn't come out as well as I'd hoped. I knit it flat and seamed it up. The next hat I make will be in the round using the twisted rib watch cap pattern I have. Its the only hat pattern I really like.
I have one more charity sweater on the needles and so far I like it, but who knows what the finished product will be when I'm done.
The rugrats have gotten in on the crafting act as well. Here was the only quiet moment I had all wknd.
I got some t-shirts on sale at JoAnns along with an iron on picture that can be painted. Here is baby Girl's. I would have included #1 Son but he ended up spilling spaghettios on the white shirt. ~sigh~
Only 4 more Monday's until school's over. Then everything stops. No more school, no more ballet, no more work. Yep that's right, I will become a lady of leisure. Peg Bundy sitting on the couch eating bonbons. Ok maybe not that bad but the pace of life will slow down a bit and for that I'm grateful.
Get ready to par-tay!!!
