My daughter's Rose City Roller socks. She loves them and has already worn them. She even posted about them on Facebook. That made me feel pretty darn good. Once those were done, I had to decide what project to work on next.
How about casting on Daughter's next pair of RCR socks. Brilliant idea, right? This is some of my much loved Diversity yarn. Once again, she picked out the color she wanted. I told her I had cast on the next pair and she was so happy. That is when she informed me, "You can make me socks anytime you want. I love them so much." Since hubby and I both have plenty of socks, she will be receiving many pairs in the future.
Let's go ahead and start making some Victorian Lace Squares again. These are such a great 'take along' project. They are even more portable than socks. Why did I decide to make these squares again? Well, while cleaning out (decluttering) the craftroom, I ran across two totes full of fingering weight yarn. It was a mixture of Knit Picks cotton, Happy Feet (Discontinued) and Serenity yarn. None of these yarns were going to be made into socks. The Knit Picks cotton does not have much stretch to it and is just a bit thicker than most of my other sock yarns. The purple square is from the Knit Picks. Happy Feet was one of the first non-wool yarns I used to make socks but is not very comfy on the feet. It is the multi colored square. Then there is the Serenity yarn.
I have made myself a hat and fingerless mitts from this yarn. I do love it but don't think it would be much good for socks. It does not feel like it has much 'memory' in the fiber. My hat and mitts are lovely though. This yarn is super soft and has all my favorite colors in one skein. I have about 4/100 gram skeins of this. It will be fun to make lots of squares with it and see how the colors show up on it.
Good golly, here are 15 patterns. Some of these were ones I used to make baby clothes for my boys who are all now in their 40's. And I thought my hubby was a pack rat. Guess I need to look in the mirror once in a while LOL.
This is him with my daughter. The last time she visited, he would not go near her. This week, he was all over her. We think the reason he would not go to her last time is, she brought her hubby with her. He loves her husband which is kind of strange. He is not a lover of males. There are only about 4 men he really likes. The rest he tries and nip the back of their legs. Bad, bad, bad doggie.
And then there is my sweet, sweet Luna. She is not feeling well today. Her tummy is a bit upset. So, I made her some lovely rice this morning to add to her dry kibble. It seems to have helped a lot. She is now resting quite comfortably. Last night she kept running in and out of the doggy door and her tummy was making ugly sounds. When I went to bed, she curled up right next to me for quite a while before she went into her bed. I woke up this morning with her curled up next to my head. This is very unusual for her. She is quite independent and not really a cuddler. So, I knew she was not feeling well. At the age of 14, I know our days are numbered with her. So, I will spoil her anyway I can, including making jasmine rice for her to eat.
