I finished a pair of socks for Jet while on the trip. I also, on Sunday, added a frizzy, white, sparkly edging to a pair of pink socks for a little girl that wouldn't take off the other pair... hee. I'd given her two pairs of pink socks, one with white, sparkling lace, the other without. She wouldn't take the pair with the sparkles off, at all. Her mom finally asked me to put an edging on the other pair, too, so she could actually WASH the first. :-) I obliged.

I'll have to make a picture of Jet's new socks, as they're Elizabeth Zimmerman's moccasin style socks, with a sole added to a instep, so that I can easily replace the sole when he puts holes into them. The last three pairs of socks I'd made him got holes in the sole and he helped the holes along by pulling on them. So I wanted something where if he wore holes into them, I could easily replace the parts that wore out and not have to throw the whole thing out.
