I am working on a sock for my niece, Meagan. She is the one who inspired the Meagan sock although her Meagan socks are sparkly Meagan's. Yep, I am beading them. When I find my camera, I will go ahead and snap some pictures of them. I finished one and I need to cast on for the second one.
I am also working on an afghan for a friend's soon to be hubby. I have the yarn and started working on this thing a while back and hubby said no, he didn't want it. He has his big blue afghan he snuggles up in. So, I started showing off the picture and found someone who wanted it. He doesn't know about it. My friend approved it. I am guessing he should like it.
I slipped and fell onto my hands and knees Wednesday night. Always so much fun to be me. I was walking into my kitchen to refill my glass of water, when unbeknownst to me, I hit a patch of water on my tile floor, I didn't break the glass even thought I dropped it, and I landed on my hands and knees. I am in a knee brace from my thigh to my shin. I broke out the big boy. This time around it is the right knee instead of the left knee. I can't stand to put any sort of pressure on it.
Since I am forced to take it easy on myself, I get to work on all sorts of projects...hence the sock and the afghan. I also will be dyeing some sock yarn for another niece who wants sparkly socks. I asked her what color she wants...no painted yarn for this project...."aqua" was the answer. Well, that doesn't help me much so, I asked, which one? Aqua blue or aqua green. She replied with "aqua blue". Okay. So, I will be knitting aqua blue socks. I am working on turquoise socks right now. What Kate doesn't realize is that her sister's socks are darker than in the pictures. I will be using a darker bead on Kate's socks. I just have to design her socks. I am thinking about that right now. I have an idea on what I want to do. :) She will not be getting Meagan socks. Nope, I am getting sick of that pattern. I need something new.
I might even share it with my readers. It is always fun to try a new sock pattern. Something exciting. I might even share the Meagan sock.
