Seriously, I am starting to develop trenchfoot from standing in the mud at football practices. Imagine how Puck must feel. Especially last night, after two hours of icy rainy football, he has to tie on the skates for a two hour hockey practice. Did I bring him hot chocolate to warm up before hockey? Yes. Did I let him leave hockey practice early, before he collapsed? You bet I did.
A very bright and shiny FO. Pattern: Feather Pluckin' by Erin Vaughan. (Her store is currently closed - but she has a cute, free sock pattern here. Yarn: Yarntini's Mint Mojito Variegated. Needles: 2.5 mm Brittany dpn's. Started: October 2, 2007 Completed: October 15, 2007.
The second Elegance sock is moving along.
See the prettiness I am going to cast on next? This is Fleece Artist Curlylocks and Kid Aran. It is going to become a Lady of the Lake. I blame the Yarn Harlot. See her September 12 blog entry.
It is a deeper red than can possibly be shown on a computer screen with my limited ablities.
The males in my house (that means everybody else but me), are heading out to South Dakota on Thursday for a Pheasant Hunting Expedition, so I will be curled up with movies and knitting this weekend (sigh). But right now, I have to go purchase winter UnderArmour for the pigskin warrior, Puck. Brrrrr.
I think you and Puck have a pretty good reason for being tired of all this rain. Wool socks will help, right?
I've HAD trenchfoot (thank you for the many life expanding experiences you provided, National Guards). UGH.
Between you and Limedragon, I'm suddenly TWITCHING to knit Elegance socks...
LOVE your projects!
LOVE the red yarns. I can't wait to see the end product, even if the color won't cooperate on the computer.
