Busy Weekend :)
The ends are DONE. All finished. There were over 500... 289 + the 225 for the giraffe = 514 total. What a pain in the @(#@!!! Now I just need to give it a de-cat-furring wash, and wrap it up and mail it to my aunt. :)
Because the yarn for my dad's vest hasn't come in the mail yet, I started a vest for my mom for her birthday in June- the yarn is from ebay, and has been hanging out in my stash. I'm using the pattern from Knitter's Handy, but I think I'll heavily modify the front. I'm hoping for some cables, but I'm not sure how they'll show up in this yarn. I took this photo on Saturday, and there is a LOT more progress since then- I'm probably about 10" up the back by now!
Here is a photo of the (almost) finished first Fire Sock, and the beginning of the second. You can just barely see the stitch marker I made on the second sock- I took several pairs of old earrings and made them into stitch markers- very easy, and really pretty. :) I took a photo, but it didn't turn out too well- I'll try for a better pic tonight.
The Latin phrase for today:
between the hammer and the anvil
"inter malleum et incudem"
