Yesterday I finished the orange socks for Shelby (age 6). I had originally started to put some fun fibre on the cuff, but when I showed it to her she said "Well I could wear them at home". After that tactful remark I removed the fun fibre and just did plain ribbing. She tried the socks on yesterday and promptly took them off saying they were itchy. Now I have to find a child who likes ORANGE wool socks. Don't know what to make this child's socks out of as she liked the last wool pair. I think the overdying made the socks feel coarse. The wool was patterned left overs from other socks that I overdyed with orange kool-aid.

back to "normal"!

Well no Granddaughter to babysit after school this week. She spent the weekend with us and went home Sunday. I still have seamonkeys in the kitchen and pet snails in a jar in the living room. There is a small loom, a chair and table in the living room and odd things in odd spots I am sure.
I have 3 washcloths, 5 socks, 2 shawls, 1 bookmark and a purse handle on the needles. My sock and cotton yarn are in a rolling drawer unit in the kitchen and my craft room is still a mess. I told DH I was going to work on it today and he said "so you can find the floor other than by gravity". To think we have stayed married for over 37 years..........LOL. Have to go and take DD to an appointment.
