Socks

I finished "Child's French Sock" from Nancy Bush's Book "Knitting Vintage Socks". I really like the book and have decided that I want to learn all the heels and toes that are in that book - only 5 or 6 of each. So I will knit all the socks in the book - two dozen. I have cast on and knit three rows of ribbing for a pair for my husband. I have enough yarn in my boxes for three more pair for my husband and five pair for me. Then I shall rethink this project maybe. Socks are such a nice small project for taking along.

The "Child's French Sock" was rewritten for a women and fits me almosts perfectly - could / should have been about a quarter of an inch smaller.

I have one slipper for mom done and a second well on its way. These are the felted clog slippers. I was going to have to make myself another pair but fortunately recovered my lost slipper just as we were leaving to buy yarn. My little puppy takes my shoes and slippers outside when he is annoyed with me. Only my shoes - no one elses. But those dogs from across the street who steal his bones are now stealing his shoes. Alf doesn't chew them - just puts them out in the yard to say he is upset I went without him somewhere or I didn't play long enough or I ignored him. But I permanently lost a tennis shoe to next door and then my slipper. Replaced the tennis shoe and recovered the slipper but am making mom slippers anyway. She doesn't do slippers but says she will wear these. The are deep burgundy bottoms and brighter red tops. Wait for picture. It won't ever come but wait for it anyway.

I have some sock yarn that I could send you . . . I found it after searching for it and I'm pretty sure I have it closer to where it might belong now.

I won't say no but weren't you busily knitting socks yourself??/

I knit several pairs but used the Collinette Jitterbug that I had bought when the other sock yarn was missing. I doubt I will use it, so might as well send it to you. Or hold it with your 2 cases of thin mints . . .
