Knitting

The one where mutants,


mutants, I say, have taken over my sock drawer.  Here, look

After

Really, I came across these socks this afternoon and after looking close, they had huge, huge holes in them where I had dropped a stitch here and there and being a newbie knitter, just ignored them and hoped they’d go away.  They didn’t.  So in the heat of the moment, I decided to frog them, this is what I ended up with.  Very curly, very pink Jitterbug.  Here’s hoping that a nice soak with Euclan and slow drying will give me at least somewhat straight yarn.  It should work, right?

My Dad is here to get started on his radiation treatment for his lung cancer.  I think he’s a bit nervous about it, heck, I’m a little nervous myself and I work at the radiation therapy center where he’s going to be treated.  It’s true what they always say, it is different when it’s your family.  He’s the only dad I have, you know.  : )

Slippery Socks are going well.  I’m loving this colorway, like I said before, it’s a complete departure from the usual for me.  Who knew that I’d be so crazy about hot pink, bright orange and bright, bright yellow yarn, not me that’s for sure.  Here’s to stepping outside the box every now and then.
