Have you ever gone to the movies and got your popcorn in a plastic bucket imprinted with an ad for an upcoming movie? I've got one for Pirates of the Caribbean and last Friday night I picked one up for The Simpson Movie. DS told me that I should keep it for a knitting bucket. Does that kid know me or what? We've also got popcorn in buckets with the kid's combo so they have their own knitting bucket.
WOOHOO!!! I have FOs
This is Stripes. I started her on the plane trip over to Aus. She was very pleased with the final results and #1 and #2 were happy to finally be paired up.
Did I ever tell you that I'm a genius? Well I think so! Okay maybe I was just being very MacGyverish with this pair of socks. Just in case you were wondering the socks were made with Koigu and they feel sooooo nice. Back to my geniusness..... I made the leg one pattern repeat too long thus coming up ever so short at the toe of the second sock.
In a case like this....you can frog the socks and restart, go buy another skein of Koigu (can't as I bought the last of that colour) or improvise.
Using leftovers from another sock, I finished the sock. As you can see while it doesn't exactly blend in, there is not enough to worry about.
Well gotta run, the kids are complaining about being hungry....
