Although there has been quite a bit of knitting going on, there hasn't been any finished projects and I haven't really felt like photographing any works in progress. To top it all off, while in the hospital with my Grandma, most of us caught some sort of hospital-grade crud. Mine was most likely pneumonia, although not confirmed. So I lost all momentum for about a week.
However, I did get this very nice package from Michelle, my Sock It To Me Again pal. It was full of wonderful things, including a skein of yarn that was leftover from the socks she made me.
Coincidentally, my friend Darla called me with a dilemma. Her husband, Eugene (who deserves to be ridiculed a little), put the booties I had made for their son in the wash. It went through a hot wash and into the dryer. So these cute little Koigu booties that I made will now fit an elf. Maybe. Since I know Darla loves these booties and her son wears them everywhere, I told her I would make her another pair. So I started a pair out of the leftover sock yarn. They're more of a summer weight bootie - much thinner than the Koigu ones. I thought about embroidering "Handwash only" on the sides, but thought that might be too subtle. What do you think?
