A major storm warning has been issued for the County of Wake in the City of Raleigh, N.C. Hurricane force winds threaten to gust through the Capital city, clean up to Canada. Yes, redneck hockey continues here in Raleigh with game seven of the Stanley Cup Finals tonight at the RBC center. The foghorn is ready and ‘Canes fans are looking forward to the game and the end of an exciting hockey season for the Carolina Hurricanes. At last reports there are but a few standing- room-only tickets available. Go Canes!!
On the knitting front, the Father’s Day Sock project turned into a fiasco. First, the sock for my Hubby turned out too short, by about one inch. Of course, I thought I could eyeball them and I was wrong. I’ll only do this a few more times before I decide I don’t have a good eye for length and maybe I had better measure foot and knit sock accordingly. Second, I could not finish the pair of socks for my Dad. The one that I did finish, fit perfectly.(I measured for that one, by the way) but I had only one that I could show him and had to take that back so that I could finish the other equally(I’m taking no more chances, here) so I feel like I really didn’t give him much more than a hug and my love. Thirdly, and best of all, the Regia Color Cotton I ordered to complete
hubby’sdaughter’s socks, came in today. Great. Today, I am not exactly a glass-is-half-full kind of person, so my guess is that the yarn will end up being the wrong color.
So, I’ll continue my sock knitting during tonight’s game. DH will get to pick a new yarn for his socks (small consolation) and I am *hoping* that my Dad will get his socks by Wednesday. Best of luck to me and the Canes.
Ya’ll go with me….
