I know it's something that is going to get a lot of use!!
This is a close-up of the edging on the top of the sock. I still need to block it so that the lace part shows better, but I thought I'd wait for the other sock and do them both at the same time. I'm still not sure if I'm going to put a button closure on it yet like in the picture. Since the original pattern is for a child's sock, I thought I should think about that one. I don't want these to look too "little girl-ish".
Jumping to the Teddy Bear Picnic swap progress - my yarn for my swap partner's kit arrived yesterday!! Now I'm just trying to find a way to cleverly package it up to resemble a kit. This is going to take a little thinking.... I'm really happy with the yarn though, it looks perfect for the pattern. I also ordered a little something extra special for my partner ;-) The rest of the yarn for the next part of the swap is still not quite here. It is sitting across the river at the post office facility and has not been delivered yet to the place where I can pick it up. My Mom went across yesterday and brought the one yarn order back but this one was just not quite there. I was really hoping it would be because I want to get started on some of the knitting. I think Mom said she is going across the river again sometime next week, so she'll pick it up then. It's hard to wait!! My passport expired at the end of last month, so I can no longer cross the boarder until I get my renewed one, which I'm praying gets here before the end of the month when my sister is planning on going to Traverse City for a fitting for her wedding dress. I so want to go too, especially since there is a yarn store there. I told Mom that if my passport isn't back by then, I'm sending her with a detailed list of what I would like! lol I'm so lucky to have a Mom that totally gets my yarn issues!! I love her so much and she's so awesome!!
Well, I hope you all have a fantastic weekend, I'm going to have some lunch then figure out my plan for the day. I know my sister is doing wedding things but I need to decide what I'll do.
Happy Knitting Everyone!!
P.S. Thanks everyone for all the sweet comments about my dress! I can't wait to actually geto to wear it :-) You guys are so awsome!!
