Mr Greenjeans was officially put into wearing rotation today:
Funky Button, purchased at my LYS. Love! The! Button!
And now I continue work on the felted clogs for man's feet. First slipper completed. The pattern is a big tricky in that you have to follow along closely each row. Because of this, it was necessary to cast-on an item that would be portable. Of course, I cast on during the boy's basketball game this weekend, which was not really tricky, but did require full attention. Note to self: casting on socks while a basketball game is in progress is not recommended knitting activity if you want the boy to think you're watching his game at all!
The sock I began will be documented soon. Stayed tuned. By the way, have I mentioned that these socks will be For Me? Why do we knitters feel guilty when we knit for ourselves? It is our talent, our money, and our time going into our craft. But, to ease the guilt, believe it or not, there will be another hat produced soon. I'm a sucker for a 6 year old boy's big eyes requesting a hat like his big brother's!
