I finnally finished. I was wondering if I was going to get them done. The pattern was fun and fast but my life these last several weeks has been crazy. My oldest daughter besides just getting her drivers permit has baffled us with and excrusating pain in her ab area. We have made numerous trips to the doctor, two Emergency Room visits and one hopsital stay, where they have drawn lots of blood, done an ultra sound and CT scan, and a colonosgpy. They ruled out appendisites, crohns, galblader and kidneys. Labs have all come out fine. The only thing is her intestins are inflamed but there is nothing to take away the pain, they don't know what caused it or when it will go away and every time she eats it causes more pain and she throws up.
These socks were fun, the yarn is so soft, it is Anni's Sockamania Plus yarn. I am looking forward to September socks. I love having the yarn and pattern shipped to me, I don't have to think about what yarn to use and then order it. No LYS in my area so all my yarn has to be ordered online. Package comes in the mail...we all get excited, the two oldest vi for who gets to open and see what color the yarn is for the month. We then wind it up on our ball winder and cast on. Lots of fun. Last night while working on them my youngest son (18 months) kept stealing my pattern and running off with it. When I started decreasing for the toe I let him run with it. It was funny to watch. If he wants up on my lap while I am knitting he moves my yarn and pattern to let me know it is his turn. ha ha
