Yarn: Opal Rainforest, Tiger (Thanks Shelda!)
Needles: 2.25 mm bamboo DPN's, probably Crystal Palace
Pattern: Ann Budd's basic sock pattern from the Knitter's Handy Book of Patterns.
Knitting: August 11 - 31, 2009
Details: Altered the length a bit. It's now an 80 stitch sock, with 80 rows in the leg and 60 in the foot. The husband reports that he's very happy.
Here's a little assist from the Pixie to show the socks to scale. Problem is, it backfired and she wouldn't take them off for a long while.
And now, for the list...
Last week was a much better week than we expected it to be. Remember when I said that my first priority was to survive the first week of school? I wasn't kidding. Last year our first week of school was rather difficult, and by the time it ended we were all completely exhausted. (Despite our stellar experiences last year with a teacher who is arguably the best kindergarten teacher on the planet, I remain convinced that full-day kindergarten is criminal.) Fortunately, this year has been much easier! It was a long, and sometimes difficult week, but all in all it was a much easier transition.
As for the rest of the list, I managed to catch up this blog with my current projects and I finished the aforementioned socks. The rest...well, I'd rather have a calm, happy first week of school!
So let's start fresh this week!
- Socks for the girls...and I can't say that enough! They are both clamoring for new socks!
- Spin a bit each day. It's fun, and it's good for the soul.
- 10 min. per day on my cardi.
- 10 min. per day on a WIP shawl.
- Begin my retrospective on my creative life.
- Finish decluttering our bedroom/closet. Seriously.
- Recommence Morning Pages.
- Finish another project.
- Work on repair basket.
- Plan Christmas gifts. You laugh, but I worked retail for years and I LOVE finishing by Halloween.
- Some lace....I keep thinking about it, but nothing has been happening.
- Write a letter. It sounds fun...I just don't know who I'd write one too.
- Organize our photos, which are a nightmare of epic proportions.
Have a great week!
