Ok I really can’t tango much today with my sock – I need to get over the alliteration too. (that probably won’t happen though. I enjoy it too much!) I have got to finish my other projects. I can’t wait to share them next week. Well, if they don’t turn out to be hang off the body or floppy armed short waisted disasters.
I began the heel flap last night. Cuff is done! All I can see when I look at this picture is that vertical line running down the middle of the sock. Small problem when going from needle to needle. Oh well, it’ll block out. (At least I will comfort myself with that for now.)
I think one reason that I love this sock so much is that those colors are just very soothing to me. The blues remind me of the ocean. It’s so darn hot here. I have to stop talking about the heat though. It is ONLY June 22. We’ve got July, August, and part of September. Oh but I just mentioned it today to explain one reason why this sock appeals to me so much. (and the fishies are just too fun!)
Davey and I walked around town this morning. We ended our walk at the thrift store. We like to check there periodically for toys for him. Last week we found a Wiggles Guitar. Today we found a mega blocks Fire Truck. 1/2 price sale so it was $2.00! He loves it. He’s been pulling it around the house and filling it up since we got home. Here you can see that playing can be serious business.
Here I got him to say “cheeeeeese”:
Finally, I wanted to share this blog – the Frugal Life Project . I just discovered it a week or so. She usually posts at least 2 times a day. Things like sales at Old Navy, or a great sale on a park bench at Amazon the other day (with free shipping!). Yesterday she put up a link to a Disney website. You can set up a phone message for free where a Mickey Mouse character will call and leave a personalized message for your child. I set it up to call this morning for Davey. At 9:00. Great planning on my part – we were out walking. So we missed it – the answering machine didn’t get it. I will try again. Anyway, she puts up coupons, recipes, all kinds of stuff. I love it! (You can follow it on facebook and twitter as well.)
