I have my daughter back from surgery; she is doing well. I have made her one of a pair of socks. It is from the handpun I did recently-I think it looks like the azaleas in my yard but she calls it rainbow sherbet! The pattern is from my new 101 Designers One Skein Wonders book. I made a few alterations-when don't I?! But it turned out fine eventually and I have cast on the second sock!
It is raining again today and the forecast is for more tomorrow. Bill is going stir crazy so took off to find a mall while I play with the kids and Marsel recoups. A good day all in all.
(I tried something new on the bottom of the sock heel; I added a strand of nylon to the sock yarn and we will see if this helps the heels last longer. I darn her socks for her but would rather not if I don't have to! I think I will also have to try some BFL fiber for the next pair and see if it last longer as a yarn choice!
*BFL=blue faced leicester is a long wool sheep which is supposed to be a good choice for socks
