Finished Object Friday


What's finished? Just one sock; the first of my Hourglass socks. Ditching those two stitches on either side of the top of the foot was the answer to making the foot a bit more narrow for a better fit. I'm very please with how it worked out. It's going to be hard to give this pair away!

Today the little plaster man is minding my stitches. He seems particularly absorbed by one section of the leg; hopefully he doesn't see a mistake or a dropped stitch. The little plaster man is one of my Grade nine art projects. He spent many years watching over my Mom, and has recently moved back in with me.

This weekend we have a birthday party to attend and then we're spending the rest of the weekend at Lake Erie with friends. Can't wait! If you have a moment today be sure to visit Delusional Knitter's blog - she's just opened her Etsy shop and she's giving away yarn! I'm not taking any chances though; I decided to go ahead and order the skein I wanted right away.

Your sock is beautiful.

I LOVE Plaster Man. So cute.

I had a sculpture of Thomas Jefferson that I did senior year. He traveled to all the homes I lived in until my stupid father in law bumped him over last year and broke him. Grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr.....
