Guess what? There was a grand total of 6 kids at the party! And one of them was a wee 2-month old sweetness who was just too adorable. I didn’t have my camera with me so no picture of the pink chubbiness, sorry.
At the end of the evening, they gave each guest a token. It’s this magic 8 ball! Cute isn’t it? I’m using it as a paperweight.
Back to the socks in question. I do love this pattern, so easy to do esp as you are slipping so many stitches that it just glides on through. I mentioned in my Ravelry project page how much I (sort of) despised this particular skein of Sundara’s yarn so I won’t go over it again. I do still love Sundara’s yarns though!
The socks are dry and packed but I still need to pick out goodies to send along to Emily. It’s just too hot in Dubai right now to think about shopping. Okay yeah, I know you go inside the malls anyway to do the shopping but it’s the in-between car and mall bit that I hate. The humidity levels get you sweating like a pig!
Short row heels and toes. I still need practice because I can’t make them as neat as I would like.
It is a great colourway. With plain vanilla socks I am sure the striping would come out really well. I think this is part of the old Seasons Collection, Autumn perhaps?
This is how much yarn I have left despite knitting for a size 9.5inches. I bet there’s close to 400 yards of this skein as opposed to the 350 shown on the label.
