Finished Socks and a Sidekick
Sock Innovation). The yarn I used is Claudia Handpaints sock yarn in Lipstick (purchased from The Loopy Ewe) and I followed the needle size and directions for the sock exactly as they were written in the book. I'm really happy with the way they came out and I just love the color!
I've started a new portable and brainless project that isn't socks! You'll have to wait until tomorrow to find out what it is though.
I won't be needing a project to work on in the pick up loop to get Caleb in the afternoons this week though because the district cancelled school for the week because of the Swine Flu. There were several cases of Type A flu in a couple of other schools in the district and it takes 7-10 days to find out from the CDC whether or not they're swine flu or not so I guess the district figures it was better to close down than to let the flu tear through the schools while they're waiting for results. Caleb thinks it's wonderful to have two Spring breaks! The rumor is (and I haven't heard from the district on this yet, which of course has the final word) that you don't have to make up closures for health reasons, only weather. So theoretically, we should still finish up the first week of June as originally scheduled. In the meantime, I have a sidekick this week.
