Socks are finished

Of course, I would give socks away without taking a pictures, so sorry for the quality of the pictures. They are cell phone pics! LOL

Anyways, the ones on the left were in the Opal Tiger colorway and I have to say, it is very nice. I love how they ended up looking like tiger stripes!

These yellow ones were for my sister's birthday (I was late!). But they fit and she loved them. She loved how she was the first in the family of "outsiders" to get a pair of socks from me! It's a long story, but the short tale is our older sister had said one time she was finished with Christmas shopping EXCEPT for the outsiders. When we asked who were the outsiders she still had to shop for, she told us "US". So for the past oh 5-7 years we have teased each other on whether we are "outsiders" or not! LOL

Mostly this past weekend, I did "sewing" stuff. Had to get my machines fixed and then pick them up and then go to Hancock Fabrics and buy some stuff, and then take my daughter back to Hancocks to pick up some stuff and then and then....LOL Actually, we got a maternity top cut out and started sewing it up, but I made a big "oops", so now I have to go get more material :( and at $10.00 a yard, I am not happy! Oh well, it's been awhile since I have actually sewn, so I'm "chaulking" it up to "blondness"! LOL

Happy knitting all!
