I was going to be a good kid and knit on my Mom's socks. And I did. But I finished the other Travelling Fairy sock. This is the finished pair, upon my delicate tootsies... (Ahem...) I hope to wear them to spinning, to drive the "identical twin socks" people nuts. Heh. I made a real effort to make these different in look, but enough similar, that they are a pair.
Okay, it made a little tiny fluffy, powdered sugar cover on the lawn. (Cordova, Alaska this ain't...) It did this yesterday, and this morning. I could tell that at least two of the llamas either slept in the open, or they were snowed on early in the morning, as they had the same little powdered sugar fluff along the line of their backs. I must say, I can tell my "white" llamas are more Aran-y during this weather, the snow is white. The llamas... Not so much. Especially the "all white" Llama, who has found a wallow of iron rich dirt, so right now she is reddish pink-brownishy. I will have to clean her fiber a lot before I can use it.
The biggest problem this morning, making me think twice about going outside, is that it melted during the day yesterday, and refroze during the night. I don't want to slip again, so I am staying housebound for the time being. Bless Husband, he is just fine with this, fed YET AGAIN this morning. At this rate, I will be able to go feed, oh, about JULY... Hmph.
To do list for today: knitting, reading, some house cleaning. (Yes, it's thrill packed here at Fur 'n Feathers Farm, folks...) I think I will work on my charity knitting today. I have a pink baby blanket for a charity group I send to. I have to get that blanket finished sooner or later, and well, it's a day of volunteering, so this is my volunteer knitting, right?
Then of course, back to Mom's sock. I am getting close to the "complicated" part of the sock, so I will see if the gal's statement that this pattern will not send me to the corner, into the fetal position, will come true. It has been a good pattern, so far, so I am hoping that will continue...
Pictures of sock and blanket soon, promise!
