Finished Object Friday!!!!!!



I promised Finished Objects and I actually have some to share. The first one is my new pair of slippers. I am thinking I should make the small size next time. They always seem to fit a little bigger than I like them. I have to wear socks with them if I want to go up the stairs or they fall off.




Next I have the socks that I was having serious doubts about making. I almost chucked them a couple of times. I am so glad I finished them though. They fit really well and I like how they feel. I will admit I didn't like working with this yarn much but I like the finished results so well that I am sure I will use it again. At least I better since there is more of it in my stash. The yarn is Lorna's Laces in the Flamingo colorway and the pattern is called Rib Zagger.




I signed up for Secret of the Stole ii. I am so enjoying this knitalong. The first clue came out last Friday and I finally finished it yesterday. I thought about throwing it across the room yesterday when it took me three hours to get the last eight rows done after I tried to figure them out for two hours the night before. I know that the problem was me I must have been too tired to work on it the other night and made stupid mistakes. I started the second clue today and I have done eight rows of it already. I think this is the farthest I have ever gotten on a lace project that I have not had to start over. I love lifelines, they have saved me several times already in this project.

This is a picture that I took of the stole yesterday after I finished the first clue. I am calling this a finished project everytime I get to the next clue so it is a recyclable finished object.





This last picture is just a picture of the Punkinbug. She wanted to have her picture taken yesterday and she just looked so cute reading her book. Yes she can read. She does ask "What is that word?" alot but she loves books and I think that is great.

Next time, the new sock on the block.

If I were you, I would try felting your slippers a little bit more. Check every few minutes trying them on with a plastic bag on your feet until they fit better. Just a suggestion take it or leave it ;)

Glad your socks worked out...they look perfect!

Your little girl is adorable :)

My kids have always "read" their books. It helps with their imagination and memory if they're allowed to make up a story based on the pictures before they even know letter recognition. Good for you. But more importantly, can she knit?
