A Rose is a Rose...

Well, it's back to the sock for a bit....remember? Crosshatch Lace, Rose Quartz, STR. I am nearly convinced that I am going to run out of yarn. For whatever reason, I had '100 grams' stuck in my head and when I was on the leg and I still had 80 left, I thought I was home free! I now have both legs done and they're gorgeous. I love this yarn alot. The ball looks somewhat big, can I make it through the rest with what's left?
I forgot how many grams it is, I had 2.6 ounces left, which is more than half of the skein, going into the gusset. It's going to be close! I'll try and finish this tonight but we'll see, feeling kind of tired.

It was supposed to be 90 but it's only 70 today. That's good. I took the kids out early this morning to do some outlet shopping. We bought a few gifts. They love to go to the Pepperidge Farm outlet store and buy alot of goodies, goldfish rules in any house with kids. In fact, I like them, too! I got some cookies for hubby, a whole bag full, used my $1 off coupon and spent $10 for tons of goodies. Then, we went to the Corelle store and I bought Abundance, service for 12, plus creamer and milk thing and some bowls. More savings, got that for a little over $100. Then, some pjs for kiddies, a pair of sneakers and sunglasses for the she-witch and some bath and body works stuff to bathe her in. High Maintenance kind of can see how well she enjoys her violin practice....and how much happier she is when swimming with her beloved brother...well, just a few comments. God Bless the man that marries her and I wouldn't trade her for any other baby girl in the world.
Stay tuned for:
1. Celebration of finishing Crosshatch Lace Socks.
2. Cursing at running out of yarn for Crosshatch Lace Socks.
