I don't have much knitting to show for the week, because lately everything I have done has turned to sh@t! I won't admit to how much frogging I have done recently.
I made her a much fancier lace sock and it was gorgous, all finished with the ends woven in and everything...but it didn't fit her foot. I made a womans' small, but the sock didn't have a lot of give. I can't bring myself to rip it apart. Yet.
These are a cuff length basic 4x2 rib pattern with purl gussets, for added texture.
The yarn is from Miss Babs, in the watermelon colorway. I love her yarn, and will gladly use it again! In fact I hope I have enough left over to make myself a little something. :)
Day two of break has been less painful than day one. We watched The Day The Earth Stood Still last night, early-ish, and the kids' got a good night's sleep. They were still up at the crack of dawn, but at least they slept better. Evan played with a friend, we did some of the necessary housecleaning for tomorrow, and I baked cupcakes. And angelfood cake. Took Em to get some new cleats, gave her & her BFF Anna mani-pedi's, and now am ready to collapse.
We ran into Anna's mom @ the sporting goods store and she was saying how bored Anna was as well, so I convinced Em to get over herself and call her (Emma was annoyed with her over something), thus ensuring the rest of break will be much better now that she has someone to hang out and commiserate with. Thank God, because I was going to have to strangle her.
Have a Happy Easter!
