Happy Wednesday. I'm joining Ginny's Yarn Along pretty late today.
I could have finished DD2's birthday socks (Dottie Sock II) last night. I intended to finish them last night. I even looked up how to best whipstitch the hems on the cuffs to make the picot edges. But, then I realized I was playing yarn chicken with my skein.
Never fear! I have an extra skein of the exact same yarn, just in case. Well, honestly, it was because when I bought the yarn I planned to make full sized socks, not ankle socks. But anyway. . .
I have another, identical skein of purple yarn, so I wasn't worried about the fact that my first skein was dwindling faster than the foot of the sock--I'm into the toe decrease. I wasn't worried, that is, until I went to get that second skein last night.
And could not find it anywhere!
So, today, I do not have finished socks to show for the yarn along. I have a mostly finished sock #2. And, hiding somewhere in my sewing/craft room (that doubles as an extra bedroom and was in use as such for part of last weekend) is the elusive matching yarn to complete it with.
I guess we'll just have to wait til next week to see how they turn out.
