Annual pedis

We back last week from visiting our daughter and family in Colorado so I’ll be telling you a bit about our trip over the next few days.

Last year I took my daughter the girls (they are 10 years old) out for pedicures when we visited them so we decided to do that again this year.

My one granddaughter got a skeleton on her big toe and I got a pumpkin.

My daughter picked a beautiful autumn color and no nail art but the other grand got a ghost one her big toe.

I want to make this an annual event when we visit.

Cornish Cream Tea

The fourth pair of socks in The Handmade Sock Society II, Cornish Cream Tea, are finished and ready to be gifted.  These were done before our vacation but I didn’t have time to post about them.

I’ve enjoyed all of the socks in this series so far and the fifth pattern was released about two weeks ago.

The yarn is Knit Picks Stroll in a tonal color called Thunderhead.  I love all the subtle shades of greys.

For some reason, the number of rows knitted between the end of the gusset and beginning of the toe decreases just wasn’t long enough to fit my foot as with the other three pairs of socks.  Same needle size, same brand and weight of yarn.  Perhaps the pattern down the front of the leg and foot doesn’t stretch as much as the previous ones.

But my SIL will love them!
