yeah, we all know a sentence that starts with well… means trouble. We all do it, trying to explain how that “extra” yarn got put in our shopping cart, “well… if I bought $50 worth I get free shipping” or trying to explain why all the cookies are suddenly missing “well… I was going to eat just one more, and the others well.. they just looked so lonely.” I’m pretty sure ya’ll get my point now.
well… I thought 185 yards would be enough for a pair of footies for me… well… I finished one sock Wednesday night. And then I weighed it, and it weighed in at 28g
and then I weighted the leftover ball of yarn, and
well… damnit I need 2 more grams of yarn. Any one out there have any Interlacement’s tiny toes in color 216? I’m willing to buy it off of you, or trade for it. Please!?
well.. at least I have one really cute footie
Today is also my Mom’s Birthday. Go on over to her blog and wish her a Happy Birthday, help me make this one fantastic day for her. Really, you should wish her a fabulous birthday, not only because she is my Mom but because
- when she comes over to visit she takes the kids downstairs and lets me sleep in.
- she lets me drag her to various fiber and knitting things.
- she can pick up a mean takeout 😉
- she can knit backwards (damn showoff)
- she puts up with mine, and my father’s craziness.
Go here to see an absolutely hysterical video of the kids and I singing happy birthday to Mema ( Sorry I couldn’t figure out how to imbed this in my blog, and I have someone who is asking me to hold one end of her jump rope. Now mind you I sound like a complete moron in that video. I don’t normally sound that damned goofy. I’m trying to get the kids to sing, and Kailey is *very* happy at the end. )
Happy Birthday Mom! hope its a good one : )
Those are pretty! Do you have some Koigu or something you could fudge the toe with? 2 grams isn’t much!
I love the footie! I hope you end up with enough to make another one 🙂 or, you could just do it like the house-elves in harry potter and wear them mismatched 😛
I’ll stop by and wish your mom a happy day. Now that I know what it is like to be a mom, I’m all about spreading happy thoughts to other ones!
That’s one gorgeous sock! I hope you find some more yarn to make the second one.
I’m heading over to your mom’s blog now. She sounds like a wonderful mom and grandma.
I am still laughing! I can’t wait for Daddy to come inside to see the video.
Should I mention that if you had made the footie for me you would have had plenty of yarn? Just teasing.
Thank you so much for everything.
Love ya all,
Mom and Mema
You do nice work with gorgeous yarn! Sorry to hear about the fiasco!
Two grams short is just cruel. I’ve got some tiny toes but mine is green so it won’t help you at all. I see a couple people on Ravelry who’ve got your colorway.
My hair brained advice: take apart the finished footie and reknit the last bit of it with a matching solid!
Happy birthday to your mom – and good luck with your footie 🙂
The footie looks great. I hope your able to find the yarn you need!
Just jam both feet into your footie and hop wherever you go.
I’ll put a shout out on my blog for you tomorrow. Try a Ravelry search for the yarn…maybe you’ll find it in someones notebook. Ravelry totally rocks! Cute footies.
The footie is so cute! I hope you find more of the yarn.
Well now I know why you’re never updating – I had your old address! Silly me.
