Has anyone seen my sock? It was last noticed sitting on the desk at Granny’s Yarn Shoppe in Islip. The knitter–me–left it there as a sample until she–me–finished the second sock. Wah! Someone walked off with my sock. It happens. People lift samples sometimes. Skeins. Needles. But one freaking sock! C’mon!
In other knitting news, I am back to pulsewarmers. Joanne–if you are still reading–#2 is on the needles for you! Then it is back to the green ones that were mismatched in size. I have barely considered what to bring to Costa Rica. My mom is trying to talk me into finishing Jaywalker #2…something about them being for me…and then working my 1 missing sock angle. No thanks. As I am only carrying on (world’s lightest packer here)–I am trying to avoid metal needles. Just in case. All my needles are scattered. And I am a bit of an Addi snob.
We had Kevin’s family over for dinner yesterday–discussing with his mom the kids schedule and all. His nephew is a cutie pie and brought his blanket that I knit for him. It’s his favorite! I think it is from an old issue of Knitter’s and it is worked in Brown Sheep Cotton Fleece. It has a cute seed stitch star motif. A real bugger to knit. But the finished product was loved by me and him. He was the recipient of the little Sirdar cable sweater I knit. Don’tcha love when people actually use your handknitted gifts?
Well, off to tidy and pack. I can’t believe Costa Rica is less than a week away!
