Exactly how long can it take to knit a pair of child-sized, thick socks? Apparently 16 days. (and obviously I can't even count.. If I started these on the 12th and finished them yesterday, on the 29th, that doesn't make 16 days, it makes 17. I shall go sit in the corner and hang my head in shame now.) Yes folks, it took me over two weeks to knit these socks! I'm actually a bit embarrassed about this. In my defence tho, after going back to work, I don't really have much time for anything, and my knitting time is cut down to a minimum. But still, 16 days! (nope, still 17, not 16..) Wow. But now they're finally finished, just in time too, as it's supposed to get a lot chillier soon.
I asked my 7yo to sit on the couch so I could get a pic of his feet, and this is what I got. Obviously the boy isn't that good at getting instructions.. The yarn is something I dyed with Kool-Aid ages ago, the pattern is a normal rib for the cuff and stockinette for the rest.
My something started is a pair of longies for the tiny one. I've knit a whopping two rows on these! Maybe I'll have them finished by Winter. Of 2010. Here's my huge progress
I also have something almost finished. Well, I finished the knitting, now I just have to get the spider in place. And since I didn't have any bright enough green yarn, I had to dye some. So now I'm just waiting for the yarn to dry, so that I can get started on the spider.
Finally, something completely unrelated. Here's what happens when you leave your 1yo alone with some yoghurt, and don't look at what she's doing for a few minutes
