|RIP Blue Earl Gray Socks 6/10-2/12|
This was my second mistake. I love you, Mom but you are the kiss of death to anything that is hand wash only. The first sock was gobbled up by her overgrown 70 lbs puppy. I was very sad. The second sock snuck in to the washer to commit heri kari. So, Mom being crafty is making one into a sock puppet and the other into a pot holder.
There is a happy note to this story, however. I walked in to Yarnability this past week (really nice store that I will be returning to soon) and spotted this on the sale rack:
It is the same yarn, same color of the my cozy socks! I grabbed them up and took them to the counter where I explained my excitement to the owner. She said, "How nice. You are going to make your mother some new socks?" I said, "Heck no. These socks are for me!"
