While they were here, I got them started on socks, toe-up, and gorgeous. They turned out to be competent knitters who, although they knit at completely different speeds, both cranked out half a "foot" of sock over New Year's Eve...
The top-down little wretch you see in the background is mine. It is a 'second sock' which I have been struggling to get started, and finished, for use as a shop sample. Yep. On my feet. Oh, me and those socks have plans... big plans. You can't tell it from the photo, but they sing and dance and thrill me to the bone. I have LotusYarn in the shop, and soon will have it on my feet. (insert big yee-haw here)
Now I have to go be a parent to my five sickly offspring. The doctor was consulted, meds prescribed all around, and, apparently the cough syrup is useless... I thought they'd start passing out by now. Curious. Will look into that later. I just remembered Eli needs a shower, as he's dipe-less (commando) due to a parenting snafu earlier this evening involving not having a spare diaper at the shop. Ah, well. It wouldn't do to have all this beauty and brains too. Have a great night, but here's a few notes to people who need to know:
Redrhonda - there is no "swish" in the kidsilk crack, and the substitute color is fern. It's actually more representative of the model to use "jelly" for the gold/chartreuse, and the "fern" is exactly the color they say "jelly" is. Does this make sense? Groovy. Cool yarn rep guy is settling it all up tomorrow afternoon. Be ready to overdose on gorgeous color and yummilicious yarn. And thank you for agreeing to knit the sample. I *heart* you, Red.
Melly - Are you done with that bottle?
Thimbleanna - I'm so excited for you to come back to the shop, I nearly pee'd my pants. Oh, please give me a day's notice so I can make you sticky buns, or chocolate croissants... AGA food, just for you and ManOfTheHouse. I can't wait. *giggle*
Alright, that's enough of that. I'm washing up the chirruns and settling in with my spanking new Lucy Neatby DVDs and that second sock. More later...
