wednesdays and gussets

I don't like doing the gusset of socks. I don't particularly hate it so much that I can't finish a sock (as my Sock FOs will prove).

It's something like a Wednesday. Wednesdays are smack in the middle of a working week, like the gusset is somewhat in the middle of a sock.

When you're done with Wednesday, Friday will get here in a blink of an eye.

When you're done with the gusset, the toes will soon be begging for the Kitchener.

So yes, when I (eventually) finish my mum's cardigan, I hope to be making socks by the week.

oh yayy!

I have an FO!

Well ok I need to sew in the ends....

But it's an FO.

The good news is... well I should have a teeny bit more time to craft now at least for the month. I finished Intermediate Japanese and am waiting for the Pre-Advance class to start. It's probably not going to be anytime this month though.

The not so good news is... I still have my mum's cardi to go boohoo.... However, seeing that I can actually finish something is making me hope I'll have time to finish her cardi too.

On bear notes, I received the mini bear kit I got with E from Gerry's. I am supposed to be able to make mini flower fairy bears but... they only gave me green and bear colored material. :( I thought there will be nicer stuff like some red or blue. And there aren't even instructions for the 'flower' parts... I guess it's nothing for beginners! I will have to get some ribbon for the birthday bear as well as some flower things for the minis if I were to make them the next time I go to spotlight.
