She Takes Her's Plain
No cables or lace or textured stitching for her. Just knit... knit... knit. She doesn't like the way they feel on her legs and feet (as if she knows, cause her's are always PLAIN). So here are some plain socks in Opal Elements for the girl child. And she made me promise that this pair wouldn't match (so against my own wanting them to match instinct) they are a little off from each other (Monk would be having FITS!).
But wait, what's this? A second pair for the girl child and they ARE textured. Yipee!!! It is so soft and smooth on the inside she said she would wear these, but the foot has to be PLAIN. I'm using the Heelless Sleeping Sock pattern from Vintage Socks. But as you can see from the picture these won't be heelless. We are not tube sock kind of gals! These are knit in Knit Picks Sock Garden/Hydrangea. They've started striping again now that the gusset decreases are done.
I have also been knitting some ballband dishcloths (mine are not as refined or well traveled as Trek's). The blue one is for my son and the purple for my daughter. But, I doubt that even these lovelies will get them to do the hand washing. Their eyes glaze over and they look at me like I'm speaking a foreign language. Huh? Pots and Pans? What are they? Ah well, a mother can dream.
Back to the knitting (and the laundry, and the dishes), how can a girl get any knitting done with all these other things looming over her head? More later! I hope.
