We made it home in one piece. Having my daughter drive through Atlanta was scary, but she made it. I thought my knitting would relax me, keep the nerves at bay. Not so. May need to check my gauge through that period of knitting. LOL.
I have a half finish to show today. I thought I would get these clogs completely felted last night after arriving home. Since I would have jeans to wash with them. But I was too tired, so they are half felted. But they will still look the same once completely felted.
Michelle asked about the Noro striping, I did have to splice colors in. On the top clog you can see there is more dark yarn at the tip. And also on the top clog you can see the abrupt change from the gold to the green. Obviously it was the more spliced portion. I started with 4 skeins of Noro and 3 skeins of Northampton and ended up with the pair above and this pair. And a bit of confession, I had to use the Noro to finish the last sole of the 2nd pair. I didn’t quite have enough of the Northampton. But it’s all good because it’s on the bottom, most won’t see it. And they are slippers, so really, who else is going to see them? LOL
In other news. The pups were ecstatic to see me, well, and the rest of the family too. The sitters noted how crazy they were to see their momma compared to how they greeted others. That’s my boys! They love their momma.
Driving home through Atlanta, Hubster decided that College Bound needed experience driving through heavy city traffic. So, I decided that knitting might help calm my nerves while College Bound drove through heavy city traffic. It didn’t help. I may need to visit the gauge on that area of knitting before proceeding too much further. LOL. But I did get a lot done on the shrug since Hubster and CB did all the driving. Will try to follow up with that at a later date. Now I need to get some groceries in the house and see what’s coming up this next week. We usually don’t cut our Spring Break week short and come home, but with Easter and all, it was time. Now we won’t be rushed for the weekend activities.
