It was great doing each section in a different colour as I could get a better understanding of exactly how a crochet sock is constructed. I've never knitted or crocheted socks before in my life. A couple of months ago I bought this "I can't believe I'm Crocheting Socks" pattern from Karen Whooley at KRW Knitwear and I'm hoping I can crochet all 9 patterns. Hopefully, they won't all be for me, have to share my work around.
My dog, Goldie, got into a bit of a pickle last week. She put her foot in a gap in our backyard fence only to have the dog next door bite her foot. As a result she had to have one toe amputated and she has some nasty cuts on her leg. She's much better, but was licking the wound like CRAZY today, so I had to get her a buster collar. She is not a happy puppy, so I wrapped her up in a cosy blanket and she is 'resting' in a spot which will get the afternoon winter sun. I've been housebound all week because of this unfortunate accident.
On another note, I am off to the Craft and Design as a Career seminar on Friday in Melbourne at the Melbourne Museum. It's a chance to get out of the house, the daggy trackie pants and pretend I'm an active community member. I follow Pip's blog Meet Me At Mikes and she will be one of the presenters there. Just to mix with humans again will be nice. I'm a bit in awe of the whole experience as I've not interacted with the human race much these past months.
Any way, that's it from me today. I wonder what the rest of the day and week have in store for me?
