Taking a page from the book of Harlot I went to our school Christmas concert on Monday night, knitting a sock all the way. Ho, Ho, Ho, Ho.
Unfortunately for me, the recipient has bigger feet than I have knit for in the past and I misjudged the amount of yarn I would need to finish. Of course, I had no other skeins and still another two inches to go on the second sock.
(See the tail of the yarn along the bottom of the picture. Danger, danger!)
The good news is that I had to go into Meadow Lake yesterday to take Molly to the vet. The one and only yarn/fabric store there carries this yarn and I was able to pick up another ball. Yeah!
The pair has been successfully completed and wrapped for gift giving. Yahoo! Now onto the next gifting pair. Pictures forthcoming as sock progresses.
A little Christmas confession - while in the shop yesterday, I did a little stash enhancing.
Love that sock yarn! Going to try to get another pair made for me over the holidays. I could seriously get used to this knitting for myself thing! Have I created a monster?
Happy Thursday before Christmas, M
