No handspun Friday today, but I'll have some handspun yarn to show next week. I've sent off Hannah's socks yesterday, should arrive in Sydney in a couple of weeks, anything earlier would surprise me.
This was pair # 4 of the Burning stripes socks by Susan Luni (I know I've got to show # 2 and # 3)
yarn: blue: Drops Delight, color # 04 and natural color: Noro Silk Garden sock yarn in # S269. I don't think I'll buy this NSG sock yarn again, at least not for socks. I just don't want to pay that much money for such a badly spun yarn. It also had a knot in it. I used it even though it was slightly thicker than Drops Delight, but I think it worked, just.
Hannah wanted natural colored socks with either, green, blue or red (I think) stripes, and I know that she does not like many shades of green, so blue it was.
I used 2.5mm DP. I didn't wash them before sending them off, and later I remembered that I could have steam ironed them a little, oh well.
Nowadays I'm glad that I'm so forgetful, because it's easier to forget the bad things, while I'll remember the good things, since I most likely take pictures of those.
Like with those guys. There are cute moments, and there are moments where I'd like to tear out my hair. Here's Denny trying to chew his way over to me, in the forbidden zone. Happy just wonders why HE's there with HIM - alone! Cute moment!
Unfortunately not all bad things can be forgotten that easily. Denny chews on everything, which is pretty normal puppy behavior. Many things go in front, and come out back later. Well, late yesterday afternoon, he totally freaked out because a thread of the sewing kind was not coming out on its own or I should say, not all the way. I had the pleasure to help him out. I spare you the details, but I guess we both were in shock for a while.
Never a dull time with this one. I'm pretty much pooped by the end of the day, and the end can't come early enough. We are up before the birds start to sing every day now. Good thing I'm a morning person. .....
