More Socks & a Tea Pot

Well, today turned out better than I hoped. So, here are the pics of the socks that I made my mommy. First we have the socks, just after I finished them:

This pic just doesn't do the color justice, and yes, they are laying all over my daily reports at work.

And, here they are on my mommy's feet. And the colors are much better in this one. Knowing my mom, she'll just put them in a drawer and look at them. She's that kind of mom. I'll have to make her another pair before she'll consider wearing these.The specs for these socks:

Pattern: Bubble Wrap by SockBug

Yarn: Plymouth Sockotta colorway #5618

Needles: US 1 Brittany DPN's

Started on May 4th.

Finished on May 15th (13th if you over look that I didn't kitchener the toe until after she tried them on.)

Here is the teapot from my girls:

This fits right in with the others that I have. The same size and color scheme. I really love my tea. My favorites are spearmint and peach flavors. I thought about flashing my tea stash as I have seen on some blogs, but there is so much up in the cabinet, that I'd be there awhile taking it all down, and then putting it all back.

Tomorrow should be a good day. I am taking a half day at work so I can go on a field trip with Katie. We are going to go to the Columbus Muesum of Art and The Spagetti Warehouse for dinner. This is the first field trip that I have ever gone on with Katie, and she is in the 5th grade. My mom usually goes with her. But, it's my turn.

Well, Gone With The Wind is coming on TMC. Not as if I don't have it on dvd, but I love to watch it every time I find it on. Just like the movie The Quiet Man with John Wayne. I don't have that one on dvd, maybe I'll ask my mom for that one for my b-day (which is next month). Anywho, night all!

ETA: I forgot to mention that I joined the Trek Along Me KAL, and it starts on June 1st. I can't wait, a summer of knitting Trekking socks! Here is the button for it.

Those socks look great!!!

Great socks! Aren't Sockbug's patterns great?

I think I may have been crazy to join the Trek-a-long. I'm having surgery next month and I have no idea how I'm going to be feeling, so I'm hoping the required trek can be interpreted as My First Walk After Surgery.
