Finished Brian’s Sox!

Friday, January 31st, 2003

I finished a pair of sox today for beloved hubby, Brian. I started these on a trip to Las Vegas in August, but I had two pair going on that trip… finished the one pair I liked best and just plain FORGOT about the second pair. Found it in my trunk a week or two ago when looking for some motor oil, and then had to figure out who they were for, etc…

They were done except for toes, and the perfect length for Brian… that helped me remember that they were for him, after all. It’s a Regia jacquard in turquoise, three blues and a grass green… with solid charcoal heels and toes. I have enough yarn left to make myself a pair to match (we both have smallish feet) but we’re not the “matching clothes” type of couple, so I resist, at least initially. I do love the colors of these sox, though. I could be tempted.

Now I don’t have a single simple project going that I can do on the road (I finished the toes today in line at the Post Office). I have so many obligatory projects and unfinished longterm “thinking” projects, that I hate to start anything new. However, I can’t do my current projects while waiting in line, they take too much brainpower for that sort of distraction. I don’t know why I feel so guilty starting another simple pair!

I need to get over the guilt and start something tomorrow because I will be going to hear my Goddaughter, Sara, sing at solo and ensemble. I expect to have quite a bit of waiting time there, between performers.

I am still plugging on the eternal to-do list (for my work) so I have no picture of the sox yet. That is four finished projects in a week! Purple alpaca and turquoise Opal sox for me, purple cropped-finger gloves for me, and Regia sox for Brian. Now if I can just get some time to take pictures and edit them properly for the web, I’ll let you see the goodies. Meanwhile, maybe you can just catch the good finishing energy from my note!
