Another week has passed. Amazing how that keeps happening. I did get a fair amount of crafting done this week.
I did my first contrasting heel. This time, I decided to do the FLK heel instead of my eye of partridge heel flap with gusseted heel. I forgot how simple this is to do. Hopefully it will fit hubby as well as the other heel. He has complained in the past that socks with this heel are hard to get on.
With sock 1 having the heel completed, I picked up sock 2 and got to work on it. I was hoping to have the heel completed on this one before I boarded my plane on Tuesday. There is still a possibility of that happening. I only need another 56 rows completed in 2 days. That is 28 rows each day. Very possible.
Can you see where my stitch count got off in the very beginning of the lace rows? Since that part will be on my neck area, I decided not to tink back to fix it. Once the entire shawl is completed, I doubt that one row will even be noticeable. This pattern is so nice to knit. Once you get the rhythm of the lace, it goes pretty smoothly. It should be perfect to wear here, in those places that think it is great to run their A/C at sub zero temperatures all year round.
I have started to make a real effort to wear dresses to Mass. I normally wear slacks and a blouse. My daughter gave me a couple of her dresses that she did not wear and I tried them on. They are quite comfy. So, yesterday, I put one on to wear to Mass and was very comfortable the whole time. In fact, we went to our BFF's house after mass and then to dinner and never did I regret having a dress on. I do own several dresses so will start to wear them also. Do you see Enrique sniffing my dress? Watch the video below.
My BFF owns 2 dogs and is fostering a third dog. I loved on all the dogs when we were over there and Enrique is trying to figure out why I have so many dog smells on me. Luna gave me one sniff and walked away. As long as I feed her and love her she could care less that I was with another animal.
