Before it gets too late, I thought I’d say Happy Halloween! (OK, the title of this is really lame, but I thought I’d go with the holiday). We didn’t get one trick or treater this year – not one. Poor Larry – I got home from work, and he had the pumpkins lit, the candy ready – and nothing. And Cieara was out with friends. So he was all by himself. But we had a nice dinner….and kept the lights on just in case. We live on a country road – very dark. We typically get one or two kids early on. But apparently they all went somewhere else this year. Now that we don’t have small kids we are really out of the whole Halloween thing – do kids still trick or treat?
I thought I’d show you the sock I just finished…..it was going to be for my step-son who just started college – but I don’t think the yarn is washable, and I just can’t see a college kid doing hand wash. So they are Larry’s. Nice yarn, eh? Its Scheepjes Neveda – sorry – I can’t find this yarn anywhere online. I bought it on vacation. Its DK weight – very squishy. I’m really enjoying it…sort of….
So I like the yarn – but for some reason, I just couldn’t wait to finish the sock. No idea why – its not like its the second one. I think perhaps I was worried I wouldn’t have enough yarn – so I finished it even though I sort of thought that it was a little short…
See how the heel flab is actually under his heel? Yep – a little short. You can also see it pulling the gussets in the other picture. But you know what? That’s just too bad – I really don’t want to pick out the kirchener stitch and add a inch. So Larry will just have to get shorter feet. But now what? Do I make the second sock short like this one, or make it the right size? Let’s just hope that this doesn’t get thrown in the wash – because it really can’t afford to lose any more inches!
So as some of you commented, Andrew’s regetta was cancelled last weekend because of the rain. So we won’t get to see him crew until the spring. Very sad – I had been looking forward to it. I did get to go to knitting group though, and had a very nice time there.
Well, two more days and another weekend! Hope the rest of your week goes fast!
