My darling hubby had asked for a pair of socks for Christmas. Well, with the way things work out around here, it is way after Christmas and I am working on his socks now. I am on the first one and it is about to drive me around the bend. Here is my predicament...I might be running low on the yarn. Oopsie! I guess if this does happen, I can always use another yarn, dye it the original color and then over dye that with the second painted on color. I just hope it would turn out right. I am totally out of the cashmerino yarn. I ended up over dying the just shocking and sunny apricot for the surprise socks that will be coming along after the 4 pairs that I have on the waiting list. One of them is the wee bitty sockie, the other two are for his siblings. Then there is the size 9 man's sock I have to knit after those three. No problemo since I have the yarn picked out for that one. A red called lipstick. Just what every man needs...a vivid red pair of socks. If he doesn't like that color, I have a hand painted one on my desk that will work out. It has blues, greens, teals, and golds in it. I call it Wintry Lights.
I am washing my knee brace tonight...it just stinks to high heaven. I am using the baking soda and vinegar on it. Everything is getting the vinegar and baking soda right now. I have some yarn that I put aside for a pattern for a shawlette. Can I find the pattern and the yarn? Nope. I have no idea where I put it. I am losing everything again.
Now...to check on the washing machine and go read on my kindle before bed.
