I finished the Tonks socks!!!! Yes. Really. I did. They were part of a KAL that I signed up for….to knit a pair of socks each quarter. I’m a quarter behind, but it doesn’t matter because I finished the Tonks socks!!!! And, yes, thank you for noticing they are fraternal twins. I love ’em.
Now, lest you think I’m slacking (any more than normal anyway), here is the next pair of take-a-long socks. It’s the Seaside colorway Lorna’s Laces that Peanut got me in Chicago. I love how they’re knitting up.
I have also cast on for BSIL’s Christmas gift. This is only about the 9th time I have cast on for this *@!)*( thing. Now, I’m mad and I refuse to give up. I spent Sunday morning knitting and ripping four different times. It’s going relatively well now, but I’m not going to get over-confident. I wish I could show it to you. The yarn is beginning to get a bit worn out at the beginning, but now I’m into the “neverbeforerippedbutthere’sstill time” sections.
Other than the sock news and the gift knitting, I don’t have much to show for my weekend. I’m trying to be good to myself and allow myself the time I need to heal. This was a weekend of doing little things for me, like spending Sunday knitting. Of course, the pup gets in on the action. I think I could get a Rat Terrier or Maltese from his fur. Here is a pile of excess fur next to the boy from Sunday. I got the same size (or a bit bigger) pile from him on Saturday. The heat has him shedding like mad. That, plus he had a tummy problem on Sunday and so he kinda just hung out and rested.
BTW, our heat has broken. It was in the 80’s yesterday and is supposed to be in the mid to upper 80’s all week. It’s wonderful. No more whining (at least about the heat, right?).
My soundtrack today is from Hair. “Where do I go?”
Have a good one!!!!!!!
P.S. I started putting PurplePi on waste yarn. I’m not off even one needle and have 700 stitches. Be afraid. Be very afraid;-P
