OMG, it has taken me forever to finish Phil's socks. I started working on them right before New Years. Yesterday we drove to Altoona for a sports and outdoor show that Phil wanted to attend. I hate those things because I am now claustrophobic and people are squeezed in there like sardines in a can. I managed to knit two inches while we were driving. When we got back home I finished the sock while we were watching t.v.
On the way home yesterday we made a detour to Bedford which is only 34 miles from Altoona. I like to stop at the Goodwill store there. I found four super nice flat muslin sheets from which I can make the girls nightgowns. I snagged some vintage patterns, too.
The middle two are for baby dolls. I couldn't pass them up.
Phil was gracious enough to go in the store with me even though thrifting isn't his cup of tea. He did manage to find a vintage water canteen for $4.99 which I thought was a steal. When we go to dog trials and field events, or even training days at the club grounds, we have to take water for the dogs. This is a great way to do that.
