I finished my socks last night while laying in bed watching mindless TV, travel channel stuff like Man vs. Food Nation and The Layover to be specific. Yes, I kitchenered after dark. That’s so unlike me but I wanted you all to get a FO Friday post so I did it. Once I had taken the photo I left the socks on. It seems winter finally decided to arrive and now my feet are always cold. The yarn is Unplanned Peacock in snakeroot that was gifted to me by Beth when she visited last month. (It’s only been a month? It seems like eons ago.) It’s lovely yarn and I really have enjoyed both the knitting and the wearing. Yes, the socks are still on my feet this morning and I think that’s where they’ll spend the day. The pattern is just the one I keep in my head, a simple 2X2 ribbing for 1 1/2 inches followed by a plain stockinette sock with a heel flap. That’s what fits my hobbit feet best. What? You didn’t know I have hobbit feet? They are square, both 8 inches long and 8 inches around.
What will I cast on next? Good question. I can’t decide. I don’t have yarn for what I want to knit and I don’t feel like knitting any of the yarn I do have. Also Cassidy has been staring at me with that unloved look so I may finally have to get going with the seaming and such.
Question while I have more than 2 people reading: I have to sew some buttons to a hat. They are small buttons with tiny holes. Normally I would use yarn to sew on buttons. I tried to use one ply of yarn but of course it just pulled apart since it was basically fluff at that point. Do I dare use thread or will that cut through the yarn over time? This is a hat I’m donating and I really want to do what is the best way.
Now for the “such”. The FIL had his cardiac cath thing done yesterday and did wonderfully. He didn’t need a stent and was ready to go home that day as promised. That’s a huge relief in a string of worry. I haven’t heard about the BIL since day before yesterday. My MIL couldn’t get a signal on her phone while at hospital 2 to call hospital 1 at the usual time. She’s probably talked to them by now but hasn’t call us so I’m going with the no news is good news, or at least the same news.
