Oh how many feet you meet!
I finally made a pair of socks for myself.
I have made several pairs already for my family, but this is the first pair for me. Funny how sometimes I get a lot more excited to make stuff for them. I did follow through and actually finished knitting a pair for me. Last time I tried this, I only made 1 sock, and you can imagine how useful that is.
The yarn (by Blue Moon Fiber Arts) was a gift from my quilting friend (thanks m.a.!) and it was really fun to knit.
The pattern is by Cookie A and called Monkey. It is so popular I think most knitters on this planet have already knit these socks.
In between clothing laundry duty this week I slipped in a load of Liberty of London fabrics. They were all quarter yards so of course they ended up in a giant ball when the laundry was finished. They are all ironed and in a neat little stack now. Just waiting for me to play with them. Oh so pretty.
This weekend was pretty slow given our little one had a fever for the better part of it and is still trying to get back on his game.
Speaking of game, I played tennis with my 6 yr old and he gave me a decent workout. I may have created myself a little tennis partner. Who knew that was possible. It all starts with love!
