I was so excited because I am flying home to The Adored One for Mother's Day, got a whole week off, going to paint the Living Room, relax on the patio, etc, etc. I'm flying out Thursday. It's been planned since January. Only, somehow I booked the flight for Friday, on a crammed commuter flight out of a tiny aeroport. Son of a Porcupine! And of course, I had a ride all planned, so I wouldn't have to pay 10 days of aeroport parking, except, she's not working on Friday. Sigh. Why is my freezer an Ice Cream Free zone?
On a brighter note:
They're finished! I dyed the yarn using Jacquard dyes and Knitpicks Bare. The *self striping* came out okay for just winging it. The colours seem a bit odd until you lay them against jeans. I was concerned that perhaps I had underestimated the amount (the scale bit the dust) and so I made the heels in a different colour (also dyed by Moi). And finished with just the right amount that I could have made the whole bleedin sock. But Finished beats not, eh?
