child's 4th (!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) birthday party:
and just in general businesses. (No photos because do you really need to see my 83 zillion errands I made around this week? No. Probably not.)
I did manage to finish and deliver the final bootie set (for the year, because WHOO boy more needs to be made for 2016)- and get that off the list.
Yarn: Mission Falls 136 Merino Superwash (discontinued)
Needles: US 5
Notes: These booties are so so clever and so well designed and look so great when they are done that it's totally worth the pain in the butt 8 million ends you also need to weave in.
You see, a friend of mine, (Candace from the infamous blanket incident), asked me to help her knit a stocking for her little girl for Christmas. Realizing it was much easier to show her than to actually talk her through the steps, I cast on a stocking to knit along with her. I'm nearing the heel now and will hold off until she's ready for next steps. Hopefully she still needs a little while so I can refocus on knitting some of the stuff I had planned to knit originally.
On the upside- one of my 80 zillion errands included a trip to Michaels... where I bought yarn for the secret bulky mystery project so at least I've started thinking about it...
Wonder what it will be....???
PS- this is how I wrote this blog post tonight... *happy sigh*
