Yes, I know it isn't Tuesday any more, I can't even come up with a good excuse for not posting yesterday. :0)
Remember (here) when I was so excited about my sweater? And then a week later when I was heart sick because it was so ginormous?
Well here it is now! I am in the process of un-knitting it and it is almost making me sick to my stomach! But that darn thing was starting to nag at me. So I am going to finish un-knitting the sweater and turn it into a scarf or two or twelve!
Good news to report though, my socks are finished! Even after that darn Mr. Tony dog tried to un-knit one of them for me. I only had a couple rows left to do and had to take a quick break.
When I came out of the bathroom, I saw a line of pink yarn. I followed it and found my sock with only one needle in it and no dog to be found. I had a melt down! A temper tantrum like I haven't had in a long time! That darn dog is 2 1/2 years old! He is too old to be packing my things off just to get attention. So after I calmed down, I found some new needles without teeth marks in them and carefully picked up the stitches--that was intense for me--and finished the socks.
So just in case he does this again and I have to start over, I enhanced my sock yarn stash. Oh yes I did! Really I did it before the unraveling incident. Knit Picks was having a fabulous sale on my favorite yarn, Felici. And now there are new colors that I don't have and a new sale. I cannot wait to play/work with the colors that I have and I am not tempted to buy any more for a while. Which one do I pick for my next pair of socks?? Hmmmmmm
