Wild About Socks

Have you guys seen this yet???


It's the new Tofutsies sock club sock and I really like it. I had Sue set one aside for me and have been so busy that I still haven't had a chance to get over to pick it up. It's killing me to know it's just sitting there waiting. I really love the colors and I can't wait to see it in person. I'm going to try to make my way over to the store tomorrow. If anyone else is interested Sue is always more than happy to ship. You can find her at Adirondack Yarns.

The last week has been nuts and the following week or 2 will be more of the same. The kids are at the end of the school year and I've just enrolled the littlest princess in pre-K. It's very hard for me to admit they're growing up. I had a little meltdown on the way home from the bank the other day after taking the prince to open his first ever checking account to deposit his first ever paycheck. He looked over at me and said, "Seriously? You're crying?." I tried to explain how the past few days had been very emotional what with getting ready for pre-K in the fall, him turning 16 in just a few more incredibly short weeks, and his sister starting middle school in the fall. His response? "You're such a dork." I get no sympathy.

Boys always seem to break their mamas hearts! I also have the new Tofutsies kit. I haven't started it yet either. Happy knitting!

Ah! The joys of being a mum. Been there, done that. hehe Having 1 daughter and 4 sons, I don't get much sympathy either, though mine are all grown now, some with children of their own so they are starting to realise a little of what I was feeling all those years ago. Your time will come when you can knowingly thumb your nose at them. :-)

Hi Kerry,

Thanks for visiting my blog. Your sock looks great! I totally understand where your coming from with your kids. I have a pre k and a going to be 5th grader. Where does the time go! You asked me about yarn for the Green Exchange I love varigated yarns a worsted would be nice and I love just about any fiber but merino is always nice.
Thanks for asking,
Michelle

I don't know whether to curse you or praise you. Seriously. I vow no more personal yarn purchases until I make a dent in my stash, and you show me a Tofutsie sock club in pink and green? Quickly, while no one else (inlaws and/or hubby) are in the office...
