wo

It didn't take long to fix my mistake.
And now I have a pair of socks to fit either Libby (size 7) or myself.
Truly one fun knit. Knowing so many others out there are knitting this right along with you makes it even better. Thanks Kirsten for putting this together.
I used Cascade Heritage, color 5631 on size 2 needles.


Last night, Andrew walked by my computer while my blog was on the screen. He stopped dead in his tracks. "WO" he said. Not 'wow' or 'woo' , but WO! "What?" I said. "Did you write in your coffee with nasal spray?" he replied.
He was referring to my blog header. Honestly, kids can be so darn funny.

Make it a great one!

  2. Nasal spray? You have one that comes out like paint? Too funny! Sometimes I wonder where kids come up with the connections they do... my current 4 yr old is the silliest, seriously, we're still trying to figure her out!!

    Lovely socks- they look so cozy!

  9. Kids really are a hoot-I love what they come up with. I've decided I don't like my yarn I chose for the knit-along so off to the yarn shop I go (or maybe that is an excuse to go there!)

  25. They turned out beautifully! How do you like knitting with that yarn? I just picked up two hanks of Heritage to try. The yarn is a great price and the colors are pretty. I am trying to incorporate more solids in my sock stash for more intricate patterns.
