I’m on a sock kick. After finishing the Dalton socks, I started the Stormy socks for Shawn. Guess what? He wanted the same pattern for his socks like the ones I did for the Dalton socks. Guess what? I got the same gauge with the lightweight STR. Guess what? I am making the exact same socks for him, only a little bit longer for the foot. (I wear a 9 1/2 and he wears a 10 1/2.) So these are coming along quite quickly since I already know the pattern and have the notes for a size 9 1/2. The only thing I will have to change is a few more rows for length. Plus, he wants his to be regular socks. Not ankle socks. The only thing I’m not too sure of is the pooling and striping:
The yarn is doing this on it’s own, which I wasn’t anticipating. I think it looks sort of neat, but I would have preferred to have more variations like with the other socks. But as long as Shawn likes them, (which he does so far), that’s all that really matters, right?
Yesterday, I bought these:
I am going to paint and decorate them this weekend and have Shawn drill holes in the back so I can hang them over the crib.
And this came in the mail yesterday too and I was quite delighted!
It’s the Little Bunny Foo Foo and I am quite happy that the pink is subdued, because as you know colors vary from monitor to monitor and the STR website shows a much darker pink. I like it as it is.
Have a great Easter weekend for those of you who celebrate. We will be going on a trip to the LA Zoo tomorrow. Later I’ll be hitting the yarn shop and Shawn is going to check out the R/C races. Don’t know if I’ll have an update this weekend, so just in case: HAPPY EASTER!
