Money Sucking Weekend

The Princess has been here since early Friday morning (her flight landed at 12:15 a.m.) I swear all I've done this weekend is spend money. 3::12 Wednesday night I managed to finish these: These are the strongheels socks. I saw a very pretty pair of socks made from self-striping yarn and the socks were beautiful! So pretty were they with their stripes continuing around the heel that I had to learn how to knit a strong-heel. With the help of Ravelry and a free pattern explaining the strong heel, I was able to figure it out. Unfortunately, The Princess and Miss L decided to take the photos while I was out of the house and they aren't the greatest - really, you can't see how cool this heel is. I'll take better pictures soon, but for now I wanted to post.

  4. The socks look nice to me. And at least they took pictures for you! I'm sure you're all having a wonderful time together, and, truthfully, I prefer when my daughter's flight arrives late enough that she can finish her college day, get home, sleep, and start the day fresh and here with us.
