Well folks its official I'm behind the eight ball on this Olympic knitting thing. I have turned both heels and am starting on the feet now, but I have a nagging voice in my head that says I am going to run out of yarn. I know that the sure fire way to tell is to head over to my local yarn shop where said yarn was purchased. If they have six skeins I will for sure have enough with what I've got but if they just sold the last one and they don't have another shipment till oh say the first week in May then you know I won't have enough. If these socks were for me I probably would just knit the toes pink and call it a day but these are for a sock pal and she deserves the best. I'm headed to the yarn store tomorrow so we'll see how it goes.
This picture is from yesterday, both heels are done now, but this is the right color (at least on my monitor)
I have another topic that maybe someone can help me with. I have a very good friend, she was a bridesmaid in my wedding, that to my great regret I have fallen out of close contact with. I see her maybe every other year and I see her parents about twice a year. Well the thing is that she suffered a horrible miscarriage last year, I watched from afar being pregnant and all I thought it would be hard for her to see me, but I did call her and we talked. Well last week I had this feeling that I should get a hold of her and it wouldn't go away. So I emailed her and she's pregnant!!!!! So here is my issue, I want to do something to help her and there is nothing that I can do but pray and wait just like she is doing. But I was surfing last night and found this (the cardi version) and I have this completely irrational feeling that if I knit it I can somehow will this baby to live to stay and make her/his momma so happy. Hubbo says that I should wait till she gets past 20 weeks, (she's at 17 weeks now). I just feel so helpless, I don't know what I should do. I hate waiting!
Speaking of hating to wait that's the state of the evaluation, after this weekend it is completely out of our hands. We gave her everything that she needed from us and now we have to wait til May to get a final report. I hate waiting!
Koigu take me away!
