Started Sock Pattern #2 in The Joy of Sox – “Two to Tango”. I am totally addicted. I did not want to put these down, but I am down to the wire now on my secret (gift) projects. I really like fair isle, but I am pretty new to it. I have never done it in a sock. I have had tension problems when I tried it once with a mitten, so now I am really focusing on “keeping it loose and relaxed”. This seems to be working. I am using the technique where you have one color in your left hand and one in your right. So I guess I am knitting Continental style from the left, and English from the right. Talk about making a person feel like a real knitter!
First though, I knitted the cutest fun cuff. It’s got a little ruffle to it.
And now – see the fishies?
This yarn is so soft and squishy too. It’s the Knit Picks Stroll – Tonal. It feels so nice and is awesome to knit with. The colors are just right too. I can’t wait to get back to it today!
Yesterday we had a nice Father’s Day. Davey wanted an entire party. We went to Walmart, and he wanted balloons, streamers, cups, decorations, and games. We settled for a small cake, candle and singing “Happy Father’s Day to you”. This made him very happy – oh and David too!
And finally. Yesterday David overheard Davey talking to our little Daisy girl. She’s an older girl who we adopted a few years ago. So Davey was sitting with her saying: “We love you sooooo much. You are a precious girl. You love wagging your tail and eating food and drinking water.” Sweet boy.
