Rest in peace, finished object. Bye for now.
Here’s the story…
|My FAVORITE socks.
Finished back in April of 2007.
Toe-up pattern, Socks That Rock yarn. Approximately 26,680 stitches.
So vibrant, so young, and such a bright future ahead of them.
|The other night I was enjoying some downtime with my homey-dogs, wearing my favorite socks and these slip-on Keens (because there is no end to the “sexy” in this house).
La, la, la. Knitting, watching tv. Time for bed.
I kicked off my shoes, and suddenly the floor felt really cold.
No warning! Just a complete heel blow-out without notice!
|And the other one, too!|
|Rest in peace, favorite socks. You were loved to death.
From now on, I’ll knit with a second strand of heel reinforcement yarn in all of my socks. Lesson learned.
|Stop. Doggie time.
Abe is proud to show me that he brought my bathroom rug outside.
I don’t understand his reasoning, but I was grateful, nonetheless.
