Socks & Singing

Hello all!

I know it's been a while since my last post. Life has been a bit busy lately. Busy and yet, not so bloggably interesting.

I finished another pair of socks for grandbaby. Although... I must admit, I was knitting these under some stressful times. Nothing bad mind you. Just having headaches for days on end and having too much to do and not enough time in the day. So these little socks became a bit smaller than the other ones that I made (tension shows up in the knitted and crocheted products!). And because of that, they don't match the first pair I knitted up for him. So, instead of having a pair of green socks and a pair of blue socks. He now has two pairs of miss-matched socks. BUT, one pair has a taller leg knitted on them and the other is more of a ankle cuff sock. So, these will probably fit him relatively soon. And the longer socks when he's two or so. Michelle was correct in saying that knitting two at a time alleviates the miss-matched sock situation. Something I hadn't even thought of. I was always concerned about not ever making the second sock!

I am currently working on a pair of socks for myself. I thought I should give myself a little more practice before I attempt making socks for other adults in my family. Namely my husband. He's liking the idea of homemade socks right now, I don't want to mess that up by making him a bad pair! ;-) I knitted on my socks while driving out to Grand Island, Nebraska to see the Sandhill Cranes. Our Church choir went on a field trip out to see the cranes and also to sing at our choir directors hometown church. We all had a really fun time!

The church we sang at even put us on their board!
We had so much fun that we've all decided to do another field trip next year!

Well, that'll be it for now. I'll post some pictures of spring next time. ;-)

I'm so sorry you haven't felt well!! I with you on the not enough time thing.... I haven't sewn in days.

We need to see the socks on your grandson!! I think the socks sound fun. Who said socks have to be the same color?

You field trip sounds fun. Did you get photos of the cranes? Any video of the music?

Feel better!

I hate headaches.. I get them too. ick. It is currently the fashion (among young tween girls at least) to wear different color socks. So he'll be fashion forward.. Frankly my babies ended up in different color socks just because they took them off all the time.. grocery stores littered with baby socks.. nuff said. Glad you got to go on a road trip, sounds fun! We need to get together again!
