Busted!

busted -- reading when i should be working!

socks & socks in progress!

Some mom’s do housework during the day…

But that just isn’t as much fun! šŸ˜‰

Seriously though — I’ll clean tomorrow…promise! Especially since I finished both my socks & my “mystery project.” They’re Jess’s “goodbye” socks.

She’s leaving tomorrow to move back to her hometown (about 2 1/2 hours from me, so I’ll be making an unwelcome guest of myself semi-regularly!). I decided that the girl needed a pair of handknit socks, and since she hadn’t yet made herself any, it fell to me.

Stats:
Yarn: Trekking XXL
Needles: 1 1/2 bamboo dpns
Pattern: my own — 72 sts…1×1 twisted rib cuff, 7×1 leg, eye of partridge heel flap, pheasant heel.

I am “stupid excited” about my Cables & Eyelets socks finally being finished. My biggest criticism is that they deserved to be longer in the leg. I’m sure I’ll knit them again — it’s an easy pattern to memorize. Pardon the ridiculous number of pics, I’m excited that my design came out so well!

On a more serious note, my 5 year old niece was admitted to the hospital today with a ridiculously high white cell count. They initially thought it was an appendicitis, but they’ve ruled that out. Last I heard, they were transferring her to Grand Rapids so they would have a Pediatric surgeon nearby. Please add her to your prayers. Maybe everytime you get to the end of a round or row?!
