Two Socks and Six Tees

It seemed to take forever, but I have finally completed the short-row heel of one of my two-at-a-time toe up socks. Someone please rescue me from Stockinette Island! Once I get past the ankle, I am going to do something. I don't know what yet, but definitely something. Some kind of pattern. If I don't work in a pattern, I know that I will put these socks down. I'm trying to keep this technique off of my "I Will Never Do That Again" list. Oh, and I apologize for the horrid rainy day pictures.

I'm diggin' that short-row heel. Look at that gap though. It seems pretty big to me. I'll have to twist the stitch for sure. It may even call for more lengthy surgery. I won't know until after I complete the heel on the other sock.

My daughter's school is doing a reinactment of the Oklahoma Land Run. Her "family" is to be known as the Cowgirls. We embellished t-shirts with cow print fabric and made a covered wagon. The girls were all in on the tees, but they fizzed out on me during the wagon construction. Never fear, super crafty mom took care of it. Actually, I think that I had the most fun.

Oklahoma is known as the Sooner state. Warning....a bit of history lesson is about to be typed. Waaaaay back in 1889, Indian Territory was opened to settlers. There were lots and lots of people lined up at the border and once the signal was given, they ran or rode in to claim their piece of land. Some settlers sneaked in early and thus, became known as the Sooners. Is this a great state or what?

Have a wonderful weekend!


  1. I live in OKC and just found out my son's school doesn't do the Landrun :-( I am going to take my boys to Harn Homestead next year for their annual Landrun!!
    The shirts you made for your daughter are adorable!

  2. Thanks Kerrie! The Land Run is fun of anticipation and fun. Sadly, this was my last one.


I am always happy to hear from you.
