Ok, it may seem like I am lacking in my commitment to a pair per week. I can honestly say, knitting is the 1 area of my life right now where I am not lacking!
Here are last Sundays "socks" and although they aren't the double-point delights of previous weeks, I think you will enjoy these felted lovelies.
Knit with Galaway worsted weight wool in heather...felted to foot size...decorated with vintage buttons.
This pattern was SUPER fun! It is from an awesome etsy designer and you can find it HERE.
The directions are wonderful. Mine didn't turn out as cute as hers, but I'm guessing she's made about one-million pair. Perhaps by then I will have mastered the moccasin looking ridge as well. Also, I'm a rather crappy felter. I'm inattentive at the washing machine and to save a load, I always felt with a few towels (never hurts to wash your towels in hot).
Also worth mentioning is that tomorrow I will be listing the pair of socks that were actually for today. Yes, that will make me caught up!
Yesterday was my dear Oscars birthday. He turned 4 in people years. Sometimes I wonder about 2 things.
#1 - How old do you have to be until you don't look at the people in passing cars (seriously, there seems to be an age when you look over and people just aren't looking back)?
#2 - Do you ever get tired of your dog? Previously never a pet owner, I figured the thrill wears off some time during the puppy stage. With Oscar, I could snuggle him more every day. Even at 4 years...he's still the most loved dog on the block.
***Don't forget to comment on my previous blog post. Its a GIVEAWAY!
