I had a FO. It isn’t any more. I made a shell with Artyarns Silk and Beaded Silk. It had a lace pattern on the bottom and I hated it. My mom was going to make the same shell. I told mom not to do the lace at the bottom because it was so ugly. I hated it so much that I did surgery on my shell.
I picked up stitches around the bottom and cut the lace off. That’s pretty gruesome surgery, huh?
Now it’s not a FO any more. I even crocheted around the neck and the armholes. Any advice for the bottom will be gladly received.
Hey mom, don’t do the lace!
Here’s my first installment of the 2008 Socks that Rock club. I didn’t use the pattern that came with it. So I’m a rebel! This yarn is from Sock Pixie. It’s called Groovy Socks. The pattern is free! I just did my second ever short row heel. I kind of like the idea of not picking up stitches for the gusset.
Tomorrow is the Twin 125’s at Daytona. What can I say? I love racing!
The kids are home, doing just fine without their parents. It’s snowing. One kid was home sick for a day. Our babysitter is the daughter of a friend. I’ve known her since she was two. We’d go out for lunch and she’d put butter, sugar, and anything else she could find in her water. I think she’s outgrown that now! She’s been stripping the lovely cabbage rose wallpaper in my sewing room. I don’t know what I’m replacing it with, but it won’t be flowers. Her husband is a teacher, so I’m hoping homework is covered!
I’m off to start something new!
