Yarn Along 2015.50: Almost

What a wild Wednesday at this little place here. First of all, it's December 23rd, so I'm feeling the crush of Christmas:  not only is there still a sock to finish knitting, but soon my house will be filled up with offspring.  Lots of people, lots of cooking breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Second of all, it's December 23rd, and the weather is way too warm: nearly sixty degrees (supposed to set another record high today), with rain, and the wind has been picking up all day.  We are supposed to be under high wind advisory tonight through about noon tomorrow. Which means, quite possibly losing power. Wouldn't be the first Christmas Eve/Christmas Day we were without electricity.

I'm joining Ginny late today for the Yarn Along.

I have finally completed sock#1 of the Rosamond socks for DD1's Christmas present.  And in the last 24 hours or so I've been knitting like mad (when I have the chance, that is) on sock #2.

It doesn't help that DD1 wears a women's 9.5 shoe. . . that means I have a whole lot of foot to knit between now and bedtime tomorrow.  Guess it goes along with being tall; the 'long' feet and all.  DD1 has an inch of height on me and I'm not exactly a short woman.

Anyway, I'm determined to finish this pair of socks.  Because I really don't want to have to wrap it up on the needles.  But if that is what must be done, that's what I'll do.

Tune in next week to find out.

Does Kris finish the sock in time for Christmas? 

Or not?

(insert suspenseful music here, LOL)

  1. So did you finish, or are you still going? It's gorgeous either way - lovely colour.
