First of all, whoever did a rain dance for my area, THANK YOU!!! It started to rain yesterday at 4:11pm. How do I know that? Because when it started to rain, I looked at the clock to see how long it would ACTUALLY rain! (I swear, you'd think I had no life!). Well after 10 min I was really impressed that it was still raining. You see, we HAVE had some water fall from the sky, but it only lasts for abt 2 min and then its gone. Enough to get everything wet (including yourself), but not enough to really water anything. After 30 min I was completely amazed. Finally after almost an hour later, it stopped raining. I had an empty bowl by the front door (keep in mind this is under a COVERED porch) and it had over an inch of rain in it!! WOOHOO!! Now THAT's what I call rain!
Also on Sunday while watching the Dolphin football game, I finished my Football KAL socks.
I knit them both up at the same time because I wasn't sure I'd have enough yarn for both socks. Turns out I had enough and even had left overs.
The blue is Sirdar Snuggly yarn and the melon is Wendy Peter Pan yarn #333. I dont usually knit socks with acrylic, but they were the colors I was looking for and they were in my stash. Since I plan on using them as house socks, they will be fine. I did a K3P1 rib and a stst for the foot, your basic vanilla sock, using size 3dpns (gotta love DK weight yarn!). They still took me longer than expected, abt a month, but they are done and I can move on to my next pair of socks.
Which I did.
Children In Common is revving up for an Oct 1st sock blitz so I cast on AND FINISHED sock #1 and cast on for sock #2!! I probably could have finished the 2nd if I didnt have to go to bed at a decent hour to wake up for work today. I'm thinking I'll finish it off tonight. I may make a couple more before the end of the month, esp since I still can't find the patterns for my SIL! It's light pink yarn so that means by the end of the month I'll be mixing up another batch of Kool Aid.
