…were not these. The BoSox however, did rock…favourite part of last night’s game? Papelbon picking off the runner at first who nearly beamed him with a ball 5 minutes before. Ha!
Anyway, I finished the Sox project:
Red Sox Anklets
Started: October 24th
Finished: October 25th (during the 9th inning even)
Yarn: Lion Cashmere Blend (red), little over one ball; small amount of Cascade 220 (white)
Pattern: 1 inch of ribbing, 1 inch of st for cuff, short row heel, contrast toe.
Needles: Size 6US
Notes: These are not going to be worn all that much except for watching tv – I should have gone down a needles size. I ended up doing just 2 inch cuffs because I decided, after I had started them, that I really wanted to use the rest of the cashmere blend for some gifts. Anyway, they were fun, one day I’ll actually make a pair for real red socks.
Yesterday’s job interview at the temp agency seemed to go well – I scored above average on the office tests & I filled out the paperwork so I guess I’m “hired”….let’s just hope they can find something for me. They seem like a great company though, so I do hope it works out.
Feeling pretty happy about the possibility of getting a job, I wandered down to Windsor Button for a treat. I haven’t bought yarn in so long (well, from a store, since I did buy that Panache a week or so back). So I spent a long time thinking about Christmas gifts, wandering the isles, picking up stuff & putting back (where it belongs I might add…I used to work in retail after all!)
I ended up with some lovely Ultra Alpaca for some fingerless gloves for CoffeeBoy (although they probably won’t be a Christmas gift)
Since I’ve been lacking in the YP, here’s a nice closeup for y’all.
And I picked up an extra skein of Cascade 220 for edging on the Minimalist Cardigan…although when I came back, I realized I had a better one. Ah well, you can never have too much Cascade 220.
Will this be a sweater by the end of November? Stay tuned!
