Death Socks Deployed!

I finally received the skein of yarn from my original target in Washington State. The yarn is lovely. She handdyed it different shades of purple. The yarn is from wool2dye4.com and is their Platinum sock yarn.
That was Thursday, January 28th. I called a friend and she came over to my store with her ball winder, so we could wind the yarn. I wanted to cast on during the day. I chose to knit the same pattern that I used for my first kill! By Friday evening I was at the heel flap. Of course this was the weekend that I was at work and then Saturday evening we had a dinner function to attend, so alas not much knitting time then! UGH!!!
I managed to turn the heel on Saturday, while working and getting ready for our dinner outing (which was a great time BTW!)

Sunday morning I woke up and started knitting. DH made breakfast and lunch for me while I continued to knit. We watched lots of movies that day. I was a knitting maniac! It is a good job my kids are 17 & 18...they know how to fend for themselves, since they were literally orphans on Sunday! *LOL*
I finally finished the Death socks for KnittingJo in Australia around dinner time on Sunday. I was thrilled how they turned out. The yarn was great to work with and the colours are great! I hope Jo likes them. I also sent some swag with them, when I mailed them out Monday morning. So hopefully she Receives them soon....

Happy Knitting!

Don't you just love a day committed to nothing but knitting? It sounds marvelous and we don't have enough of them. The socks turned out great. I have no doubt the recipient will be thrilled.
