Last night, between counting condoms (thousands of condoms--thousands) for AVOL and heading to the Hustler store to help supply their teaching kits (I do the best volunteer work ever!), I managed to do a little knitting.
The pirate socks are done!
You know, it's not getting any easier to photograph socks on my own feet. So I got to thinking, I really need some sock blockers, just for taking pretty pictures.
Like that one.
They're not perfect as far as sock blockers go, but they're serviceable! A few weeks ago I found some clearance stiff plastic placemats, and I bought them with the idea that I could use them to put in purse bottoms and stuff. Well, I laid out the pirate socks on one of them, traced slightly outside them with a dry erase marker, made some cuts, and voila!
The cheeriest sock blockers in the world!
I hand washed the socks last night, and they're still wet this morning. I might just have to wear them tomorrow.
And I'm already planning the next pair of Pirate Socks.
