Pastel Pigs

I keep forgetting to post a picture of Dailaesse in her new pastel socks. She just loves them and I think they look so cute on her.

I know it looks like they are different lengths but they really are both exactly the same. Her left foot was pushed down a little farther on the couch than her right. Aren't they cute? It's always so nice to give something you've made yourself to someone who appreciates it. Dailaesse loves her socks her mama makes her and she wears them constantly. Actually, everyone in the house loves handknit socks. Especially Bran. Maybe because he doesn't have as many as everyone else. Remember the last pair I made him? The lovely Sixth Sense Socks in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sport? He blew a hole in the side of the toe. I have no idea what the hell happened. I've used this yarn several times in the past and the socks are still going strong. I've made Bran lots of socks with other yarns and they are still like new. I've just decided that this yarn and his feet aren't a great match. Maybe because it doesn't have any nylon in it? Anywho, his sock is in the garage for repairs. I plan to fix it as soon as I finish the socks I started for my dad for his birthday. Yes, I realize that his birthday has passed. They are now for Father's Day. What he doesn't know won't hurt him.

I also thought I'd update you on my court appointment on Thursday. According to my lawyer, it went really well. The ex-asshole showed without a lawyer and made a big dink of himself. No surprise there since he does it everytime he opens his mouth. My lawyer didn't have our modified petition finished since she was waiting to talk to the kids counselor so we couldn't submit any of our evidence so not much of anything really happened. But, she did finally touch base with the counselor on Friday so when we go back to court on the 17th of July (again, positive thoughts and/or prayers will be greatly appreciated) all of that will be put out on the table. I'm actually somewhat looking forward to it. Especially since he sat in court and lied to the judge. Can't wait to hear the lie he tells to try to get out of that one. Dick.

great socks!!
comment=for bran, i'd reinforce the toes and heels any time you use a non-nylon sock yarn. i simply knit it along, can even use a strand of lace-wt mohair or something
