My MDSW Miss Babs socks are done. Yay. Me. After the Tour I needed something mindless to get back into the knitting thing and these were it.
It is a very interesting colorway. I would have never thought about putting those particular colors together but they work. I really like that pink and lavender stripe in the middle of all that green chaos.
When I was done I had to laugh at myself because the whole time I was standing in that ridiculously long line waiting to pay for the yarn I was pretty sure it wasn't going to be enough for a pair of socks. It was such a tiny skein and the label didn't give me what I usually go by. I asked people in line and they assured me it would be okay but I wasn't sure. Look at that. Some to spare. I could have made them even longer. Oh, well. I'll know next year.
I'm down to one pair of socks on the needles now but I only work on these while I am visiting Daddio. I hate working the double strand but he likes to hold the yarn for me and keep it straight while we visit. Little things like that are all we have left and those are on his good days. Man, I hate this. As sorry as I feel for myself sometimes, I can't even imagine what it must feel like to be on the other side of this nightmare.
