Socks, Clowns and Teeth

To My Mom: Happy Birthday!!

I have been busy lately, but I have a few things to show everyone.

I finally finished the Koigu Socks. This is the same dye lot. Can you see the problem?? The bottom sock is lighter than the top. Hopefully, it won't be noticeable on a moving target. But, I really liked working with the Koigu yarn. It has a very nice feel to it.

This is not a rehearsal for Halloween!! This is my son's friend from church. He is involved with the clown ministry. Great makeup job!!

Here is the second pair of socks for Socktoberfest. These worked up a whole lot faster than the last pair. They feel very nice on the feet. BTW, I am wearing them right now with my crocs.

This was actually knit from one skein, with several yards left over. There is only 230 yards on a skein, so I just did a 4 inch top instead of the usual 7 inches.

Not to be left out: Here is my 5 year old daughter. She lost a tooth today. After I put the tooth in a bag, she brought me the camera. "Mom", she said, "Put my picture on your internet, like you did P***'s!" ( See Archives)

So, here you are, Sweetie!!:
