What a mad crazy week it's been with a teething baby & a sick & miserable big boy! Exhausting to say the least. Somewhere in between all the misery & sleeplessness I have managed to play a little with this. Last Thursday evening I had this crazy urge to start knitting with this yarn. It's Paton's Stretchy Socks colour Fruit Slices. I got it last year from Bubs2GrubsKnitting. I really liked the look of it! I had the crazy urge to knit a sock right that minute. So I started the cuff. Got the cuff & some of the leg started & this was my Sunday project when my Ravelry group of ladies met up at the chocolate factory for coffee & cake again. I need mindless stuff to work on there as the conversation & show & tell sessions is very distracting. (especially when we all have to model a new cardi that one had knitted & said cardi suited everyone! Very surprising to see but it really did suit everyone - style & colourwise!) Anyway, I got quite a bit knitted on Sunday. I have finally got that jolly heel turned yesterday! I had to consult the MIL on that as I couldn't remember that bit on the pattern. No wonder as my pattern is written wrong. She had the updated correct version. Phew. So I have adjusted mine! Hopefully today, since the big boy is acting like his usual self, I will be able to finish this one off. I am working my way along the foot section & with a bit of luck I will get to the toe before too long. It's great watching the stripes appear. When you look at it & think that each stripe is only about 3 or 4 rows it doesn't seem to take long to knit up!
Hopefully I also can catch up on my mystery crochet along on Ravelry too. I'm 4 days behind on that! The green blob from the other day is stuffed & sewn up. Now I think we are doing arms & legs. Who knows! Stay tuned for that soon!
