I am back to working on the pair of socks I started last year. LOL Sounds so long ago but really it was 2 weeks ago. They shouldn’t have taken me this long in the first place. After finishing the first sock which you can see a picture of in a previous post, I started the 2nd sock. Only to find out that I wasn’t going to have enough yarn to actually finish it. I hate that! I do not want to go and get another skein so I improvised but I had to really push myself to do it. I have 2 skeins of another color but same brand. So my plan is to do the heel and toe portion of the sock in this other color that way I will have enough of the main color to finish the sock. Yes, this does require me to undo the first sock and do it again. Oh well! I already started so hopefully I can get this done by the end of the week so that I can start on the hat for my friend’s daughter’s birthday.
On a family note: I had a play date here at the house with 2 friends and their 3 children so my daughter could have some friends over for a while. Since she is not in daycare it is really the only time she gets to interact with children her own age. They had a great time playing and coloring. Abby didn’t have a nap that day so by the time everyone left and we ate dinner it just went downhill from there. She ended going to bed around 7 PM. At least she wasn’t up too early just her normal time of about 6:30 AM. She gets that from her daddy. You will never see me up at that time.
Today we went to the library for Toddler Story-time which Abby can never sit still for so after walking out Abby had all the toddler books to herself which she of course loved. We read “Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?” about 3 times. She loves that book! The Toddler Story-time was actually a MeetUp with a mom’s group I am a part of so I met a whole bunch of new moms that joined the group after the holidays. We went to Chik-fil-A afterward to let the children play and eat some lunch. We had a good time and thank goodness Abby took her nap when we got home.
I will be having another play date this Friday with the Mom’s MeetUp group. Hopefully that goes well and everyone comes.
