Happy Friday everyone! Let me tell you, my family needs the long holiday weekend to recuperate from last weekend. My husband and I (and even Milo my corgi) haven't been feeling well this week. I hope to just rest, relax and knit socks! I also want to thank all of you who ordered yarn this week from Candy Skein! Wow, you made my week! I had several orders so I've been busy going back and forth to the post office.
Okay, on to FO Friday. You have to promise not to laugh at the pictures though. Remember, I was in Palm Springs so I look all hot and sweaty as it was 95 degrees and we were in the sun all day. It was awesome to knit there (at Tiki Caliente, a tiki convention), as I got a lot of attention from it. I even met a girl who crochets and knits, but unfortunately, she doesn't live in my area, but her boyfriend does, so hopefully I'll get to meet her again. I finished knitting on Saturday morning, which meant I worked on the hair kerchief Friday evening before the sun went down. The great thing was, I was able to wear it both Saturday and Sunday and one lady even stopped to say she saw me knitting it and thought it looked great. :) It made me proud, even though it was a silly little project. It helped me meet people, which is good, because I'm pretty shy in person and don't feel very comfortable around a ton of people I don't know. Anyway, here it is! Please excuse the cup within a cup within a tiki mug. Also my weird 'I'm trying not to squint' expression. Also, I got tanner, I promise. LOL
Edit: I also forgot to mention that I crocheted the ties (which I added to the materials used now. Can you tell I wrote this post in a hurry?) because I could crochet them in about 2 minutes and knitting would have taken forever.
