The Stash Thins
Have you ever tried to photograph a 3 year old's feet while she hugs them, rolls around, and sings "I love my socks! I love my socks!" At least she likes the socks, right?
Well, last week it was 70 degrees. Today it's 11. The Squid needed more wool socks. She chose the yarn (Mosaic Moon Organic Merino, naturally) and off I went. This is the first time I've ribbed the entire top of the sock and I think it makes a huge difference in the fit, especially for a non-superwash merino which felts, pills, and stretches easily.
Teeny pants. We had to try them on every doll in the house to make sure they didn't fit anyone before the Squid could concede that they were for the baby, not a doll. Looking at them they look so funny. I'd forgotten how oddly shaped newborns are. More Mosaic Moon merino.
The stash is thinning. I'm feeling great pride and accomplishing a ton of tiny projects that needed to be done.
