Here’s a teaser, funnier photos to follow once I get them all downloaded from the camera.
It was a trial run and I think Sundara would do it again next year as it is a good way to clear her stash of yarn and also give a chance to buy yarn for those who cannot subscribe to her collections. You just have to be super quick or else those skeins in your Paypal cart will disappear one by one right before your eyes. There were plenty of offering on the 8th Feb but these were the only ones I could afford!Undoubtedly the reigning Queen of My Stash at the moment: a skein of 100% Silk Lace in a very rich, dreamy shade of red-purple. It’s called Pure Temptation. Go on, look at it and I dare you to not fall in love with it.
I discovered recently that Sundara Sock Yarn is a delightful base to knit with so when she offered Limited Edition sock yarns I just had to grab one. This little beauty caught my eye – and my wallet. It’s a pretty shade of blue, the most brilliant skein of blue in my stash right now – and it’s called Vibrant Vixen.
I changed my mind about using Cerulean Seas for the Zigzag Anklets and I’m going to use this one instead.
He can still put on socks but prefers really stretchy ones. When my sister tried this on one day, she unashamedly coveted them. So now they’re called The Project Formerly Known As Father Socks.
Because I stupidly forgot to work the gusset decrease rounds.
So, 6.5 inches into the foot, the second sock and I took a trip to the edges of the frog pond. I was going to close my eyes and pretend I didn’t see it and hope that my sister, complete knitting ignoramus that she is, would never notice. But who was I kidding? I will know. It will eat me up slowly, building up the guilt slowly but surely until one night I would wake up screaming, drenched in sweat when I will pick up the phone, call my sister and insist she give me back the sock first thing the following day so that I can make things right.
I’m glad I spared myself all that torment. Here they are as of last night. Today, I am 5 rounds away from the toe decrease and everything is looking good.
