The Forgotten Sock

Monday was Memorial Day in the US so that meant I got an extra day off of work. My husband and I both work with adults who have physical and mental disabilities. I work in a classroom setting and he works in one of the houses. Unfortunately he still had to work this weekend so I had three days to do whatever I wanted to. My goal was to finish the first of the Father's Day socks. Saturday I woke up with an overwhelming desire to start playing with my hedgehog fabric. By Sunday I had finished the quilt top, two Farmer's Wife blocks, and made this cute little pouch for a giveaway. Go to Sunday's post and tell me your favorite animal for a chance to win. You can also get an extra entry by following my blog and telling me you do so on Sunday's post.


I figured Monday I could really put some time in on the sock. I finally worked up the courage to talk to our neighbor about using some of her extra rhubarb so I made rhubarb jam Monday morning. I woke up really early so my kitchen was back to it's normal state by 7:00a.m. Still plenty of time to work on the sock. Then I realized that if I spent the morning working on Farmer's Wife blocks I could almost get caught up. I really shouldn't be surprised that I'm still working on the first sock. (I did finish the instep last night so it might even get done before Father's Day.) Of course yesterday in the mail I got my background fabric for the Supernova Friendship Swap and I got some cute Briar Rose fabric for a little girl's comfort quilt so who knows. Sadly the plain black sock does not compete well against cute little frogs with backpacks. I need to remind myself that when I finish this pair of socks I can go back to knitting my blueberry. Maybe the temptation of a bright blue happy yarn will keep me on track.
