My new socks that I had knit for myself were supposed to be machine washable. What a freaking lie that was. I washed them in the machine with some reservations, I should have known it wouldn't work. The socks felted just a bit. So, I pulled them out and put them on the sock blockers. I will be hand washing them from now on.
Today I rode my exercise bicycle since it has been raining here. I have an appointment with the dietician this Friday so, this should help me out. I get to find out what I can or can't eat. I had some soup today and gave the other half of the can to the doggies. They love getting free hand outs.
I have plans to work on some new outfits for my niece, Maribeth. I have the fabric for her new outfits. I just have to cut out the patterns and get to work on them. I think the pattern that I chose for the first outfits are going to be really cute. These will be for summer.
My Aunt Cecilia always made outfits for us when we were kids and I want to keep the tradition alive. They were great play clothes. I want Maribeth to known how much fun hand made clothes can be.
I have plans to knit some more socks for myself. I have some really nice yarn that I have been wanting to use for ages. There is some nice yarn sitting on my desk that screams the '80's. I can't wait to wind it into a ball and use it. I noticed the other day when I was shopping for two of my nieces that the electric colors are coming back into fashion. Awesome.
