STR, heavyweight, in Mudslide
I'm being good and using stash yarn. Of course, I'll feed dad's sock addiction (seriously, he wore his Thujas to Christmas dinner, to coffee on Saturdays, to the SuperBowl party, he loves them!!) by telling him they'll have more colors at Stitches West! Oh, and Dad's birthday is Saturday (yeap, two days before mine!) so I better get a move on!
After I finish Dad's Thuja's I'll be working on my Serendipity Socks.
With the slightly ridiculous goal of trying to finish these for Valentine's Day! Wouldn't they be perfect!! I love the pattern and they fit great!!
Of course, the sock I really really want to work on, that I wanted to work on even more than the Wild Monkeys, is the second sock to the lonely sock that I left at my friend's house in New Orleans (and I'm praying it is making its way here in the mail!).
This is the point I was at when I was at the airport and I realized that I left the sock at her house. And then I stopped. I knew I would finish it before the other sock arrived home to me and I would be sad.....really, I LOVE this sock. Perfect colors that I can wear everyday without being "wild" and the fit...well, its the first pair in awhile that fits me perfectly and that I don't have to give away :) So, until my sock comes back to me, I'm not working on this.
And to prepare for Stitches West (Squee!!!!!) a bit of destashing (the good stuff too, because umm...it sells quicker!!) is going on over here! (ravelry link)
Happy Sock Knitting!!
P.S. Dad, notorious for just looking at the blog pictures, actually read the comments about Puddles (you know, he shares joint custody during the week). In addition to saying, "Why aren't there pictures of Bailey?" He said, "She's a girl." Thanks guys! :)
