It was Purling Pirate's birthday last week and I knit her a pair of socks.
Pattern: No Purl Monkeys by Crafty Pancakes
Yarn: Koigu KPPPM; no idea what the colour is; 2 skeins (50g; 175 yds per skein)
Needles: 2.5mm Hiya Hiya dpns
Notes: She's got big feetz so I only had a teeny bit of yarn leftover. My 47th pair of socks!!!!
The pics don't show off the colour well but trust me when I say that these are really bright!
The Lacy Kerchief Scarf is moving along. It looks about the same as it did last week but longer. I was hoping to get more done but my time has been spent playing with the nieces. And in a few days, hubby's parents come to town (not staying with us this time) so we've got a whole list of events for Easter weekend.
I didn't get any knitting done tonite because Dad's washing machine flooded the laundry room. Despite the fact that three people (I was not one of them) checked the outlet hose to make sure it was securely fastened, it wasn't. We spent almost 2 hours cleaning up the mess, reattaching the hose (securely this time), and testing it. I am currently washing 3 loads of towels used in the clean up because my washing machine is bigger and Dad doesn't have a dryer. I'm exhausted.
