This morning, I told you about working on socks toe up. I was very excited about these socks, actually. I chose the pattern Laburnum from Sensational Knitted Socks. I got them on the needle the right way and was merrily on my way to the heel.....see!
So happy was I that I even took them outside....
ah...so lovely my little toes.
In the afternoon, it was warm and I needed to take a lunch break from work. The kids were back from karate camp and hubby was on his way home to watch them while I finished working. I took the sock outside for some sun and to watch the kids in the pool.
They spent the afternoon there, in a basket.
I spent the afternoon working and then cooking dinner.
The dog spent the afternoon.....
Eating my socks, making a hole in the yarn and breaking it AND eating the needle. (Note the broken end!!). UGH! GOOD GRIEF!! WTF?
(calming down to my usual motherly, non-cursing self...)
Boys and girls, can you say, LIVID??
So, back to the drawing board for a third time with Ruby Slippers. I hope I can still reuse this yarn after frogging and refrogging and winding twice....better take out Butter Peeps instead tonight. Nice light color...probably top down it this time. I will work on them after treadmill, kids get bath and husband is sleeping.
Ok, in case I don't post tomorrow, I leave you with three pictures..
