Soap Socks

On Friday nights my knitting group meets at the local Panera Bread. We are a loud group who can be a handful. Yet, the staff is awesome to us. The manager always stops by to see what we are doing and occasionally brings us brownies and bread on the house. Two of the other staff are also always so friendly, so my friend Kristina suggested we make each of them a little something.

She is making the cotton washcloths/dish rags and I made these little soap bags.

Super quick and easy knit, each of these took about an hour.

My husband practically skipped out the door on his way to work today to show off his new socks. He loves hand knit socks, but the 100% wool socks make his feet sweat so these are JaWool Cotton blend, so we'll see how these work out for him.

He can't decide if he likes hand knit socks more because they fit his feet so well or because the rest of the guys in the shop are so jealous because he's got custom fit socks on. He thinks it's a tie.

On the agenda today to knock out some little lace cotton soap bags and then work on my Pomatomus socks.

Disaster Struck....

I ripped out the socks. The pattern in this yarn was not working outand I knew that once I got to the heel it was going to be too big even for my husband.

So, into the frog pond goes these socks!

Everything was going great, the toes were perfect for me, I love the yarn then....whoops....I realize that the foot is going to be WAY too long for me.

Crap.

All is not lost though, Dirk tried them on last night and they will fit him great. He loved the swirly part. :)

They are FINALLY done and I didn't run out of yarn so I will be returning the two skeins that my friend Kristina so generously dug out of her stash for me in case there was a short sock emergency.

I saw this hat on Knitty.com and thought it was hysterical! So, I grabbed up random small balls of yarn from previous projects to get started on it for my husband.

Fun and easy to knit!
