The cooler weather, albeit lovely, has come too late. I have already melted.

I'm still around, just don't feel too much like blogging these days. I think the heat has burned and seared the lobes in my brain responsible for kindness, patience and all things knitting and crocheted.

The main purpose of this particular blog entry was to wish my friend Tevana a happy belated birthday! I didn't forget and I hope it was great!

I love them. I hate them.

My socks. I want to cry. I made some sort of unfixable mistake and I had to take them apart. Not to mention that my gauge was too tight and they wouldn't have even fit a Barbie. I'm so friggin' obsessed by making them it actually keeps me awake during the day. That's NOT right. I tried making them with bigger needles to account for their small size and they started coming out too holey. Do I increase evenly instead for the larger size? They are just a basic ribbed sock, nothing fancy.

It's really great when someone loves and appreciates what you make for them. I made this for my nephew Evan before he was born a little over a year ago (just look at him now! :-). He would like a bigger blanket for when the weather gets cooler. I say he deserves it!
