Georgio's socks. And, please notice, once again, they MATCH!! Well, pretty close anyhow. These things are so small that he better wear them home from the hospital because they may not fit him the next day. Next time, size 2 needles instead of 1's. INFANT SOCKS By Judy Ellis
I worked on Clapotis III after I finished the socks. I still have all of section 4 and 5 to do yet. As much as I love this pattern (and I really really do), I think this will be my last Clapotis for a while. I am finally getting tired of it. And never again with a mohair blend. Duh. That was stupid! It's only 20% mohair but those darn little fibers really tangle. It's going to be beautiful though and it's going to look fabulous with my camel coat.
And because I think there should be socks on needles at all times, I started these last night too. I need some plain black and brown warm socks to wear to work. I wear these opaque trouser socks all the time and they do nothing to help with the cold feet. All of my hand knit socks are a little too flashy for work so I'm going to attempt to remedy that little problem. I don't know how this yarn will do with whole "memory" thing that is so important with socks but we'll see. I have a feeling it's not going to do very well. It's a cashmerino blend. It feels wonderful but the first time I wear them I'll probably end up with yarn "boats" at the end of the day.
Catie will be home from school tomorrow. I'm hoping her arrival will help me get more into the Christmas spirit. I just haven't been motivated at all to do the things I need to do yet. I have my family for Christmas Eve... about 28 people.... so getting my house in order is the number one priority. I keep thinking about everything that needs done, but instead of doing it, I sit and... well....knit.
