Wow. This weekend seemed ultra short. Like I sneezed and all of a sudden it's Sunday afternoon. It probably didn't help that I watched St. Elmo's Fire for the umpteenth time today. You know, I've never seen that movie all the way through. I either start watching a half hour into it or stop watching right before Demi goes nuts and holes herself up in her frigid room. Funny how everything in her apartment was taken by her creditors except those curtains blowing in the breeze of the open windows... I am going to become more productive soon b/c the store received a about 2 dozen sock patterns and I hope to be able to get them up on the web tonight.
Joe's been uber productive this weekend. For those of you who know Joe (the hairy legged men's sock model from previous post) you know he can't go a moment without a project. He's been making art since the school year ended. Here's a pic of what he worked on yesterday. I was just so impressed that I had to take a picture. A 22 inch platter. I couldn't throw a 2 inch platter, let alone a 22 inch one! I've never even been at a potters wheel!
But we're all good at different things... I can knit a sock and make a mean key lime pie, Joe can do everything else.
Speaking of knitting a mean sock, here's a pic of how the Lace Kid Merino sock for Isabelle is going. I was told by Lilly, Isabelle's mom, that Isabelle's foot is not quite nine inches long... does that not seem like a big foot for a 6 year old?!? I mean, she IS tall for her age, but my foot is only over 10 inches, and I have sasquach feet! But I don't know much about children, so maybe I'm just talking out my, uh, bum.
I did one less repeat on the lace than the pattern called for, cause it's for a tiny foot- or what I thought would be a tiny foot. Boy, 9 inches! Isabelle's going to be one great basketball player at this rate! Once the socks are both done, I will take a better picture than this one! But I'm thinking of starting a new project with Cherry Tree Hill's super glitz. I don't usually do two projects at once, but this CTH yarn is calling my name.
