Happy Friday, y'all! I'm super excited on this particular Friday for lots of reasons:
First, if you're reading this it means I've finally put in the last hours at my terrible, horrible, no-good, very bad job. What a relief. I'm SO excited to start a whole new life in the next couple of weeks, and only a little bit sad about the whole affair.
Next, I finished the Wedding Socks! And I did it in plenty of time to meet that whole Olympic knitting deadline. Awesome. They fit Mr. Right's feet perfectly, and I love the way they turned out:
Not bad, eh? Bonus: Despite more than a year transpiring between sock 1 and sock 2, they're almost exactly the same size. No idea how I managed that, but pretty happy that I did.
More pics to come after the Big Day, promise. My little sock blockers don't quite do a great job of showing off the pattern since boy socks are so. freaking. big.
And... I have another FO this week! Largely because someone else made it. Behold, wedding jam:
These cute little things are our wedding favors. Homemade peach jam, courtesy of my awesome matron of honor, and spectacular jam labels courtesy of my equally awesome art director friend. I'm kind of smitten with them and hope our guests are, too. They still need a ribbon or a bit of twine around the lid, but that should be pretty painless.
Now, just 2 1/2 more puffs to go, and the wedding knitting will be finito. Phew! Then, I just have 11 million and 3 things left to get done before the wedding. Next week. Eep! Okay, I'm exaggerating a little bit. Really, we're in great shape as far as stuff coming together. I know this because I still have time to knit. Baby blanket! Woot!
And now I'm off to wash the dog. Oh, the glamorous life of a bride! But then I'll check out all the cool stuff that's happening at FO Friday and Fiber Arts Friday, because both of them are way more fun than stinky, wet dog.
