I was so close. In working on the foot to Mad Color Weave Sock #1, I knew there didn't look like enough yarn left. My usual approach is to race the knitting to the end - if I just knit fast, it won't have time to run out. Usually this works. I have been lucky in the past. I think my luck ran out. So close.
eye of partridge style heel flap is very pretty. The texture is nice and isn't as ribby looking as a typical slip stitch heel flap. I'm about halfway through the leg of sock #2. The tail is a bit shorter on this second sock, so I may have enough to finish. I'll have to see - if I have extra, I may just rip out the green tip and make it blue.
Another big accomplishment of the weekend - Tucker got his AD (Agility Dog) USDAA title! We have been really close for a few months now, but little bobbles in each round has kept us from earning the title.
Sarah came up to the trial on Saturday to watch us compete. Tucker always loves having a fan club. After the trial, we headed over to the Hub Mills Factory Store - the outlet for Classic Elite Yarns. The area it was in was kind of sketchy - downtown Lowell, Massachusetts.
All I ended up with was a cute little green Chibi. I had wanted some pointier needles for sewing in ends, as well as smaller needles - this had both! I also got a locking row counter (also seen on that page). I guess green was the color for me for the day! My pink locking Katcha counter somehow got lost on the trip to Vermont a while back.
On the way out when we were getting in our cars, we noticed an unusual object above us.
