Time For Bed
Middle Sock 01
Originally uploaded by Miffy's Knitting
When I first started knitting I made a pair of bed socks for Middle. He wanted something knit for him although at the time I really didn't think he would wear anything I knit him in public (I was wrong there he loves his knitted hats and stole the last shawl that I made) so I went for bed socks.
I have never seen a pair of socks loved so much. He wore them and wore them all through the winter and often in the summer too.
Sadly though last Autumn one of them developed a hole which Middle didn't tell me about. This was fast followed by another hole in the other sock and then some unravelling, acctually quite alot of unravelling at which point they were handed to me with a request to mend them.
I mean't to take a picture of what he handed over, I'm fairly sure that once the unravelling started he helped it along somewhat, but of course I didn't get around to it.
However I have not gotten around to knitting him a new pair. Fortunately I had enough of the gorgous Mama Ocllo Baby Alpaca sock yarn left to make them.
I'm hopefull that if I can get a couple of evenings knitting in today and tomorrow I might have them finished for a Friday Finished Object post. You never know.
Now I've been and found Tami's site I'm going to link to her here, from Tami's site you'll be able to see what she and lots of other crafty folk are up to at the moment. Do go see there's some loverly stuff out there. :)
