FO Friday: An Ankle sock is born and The Jar for June.

Hello all, I hope you are well and happy! The weather here in Canada has been lovely. Loads of sunshine and just enough rain. As some of you know it has been a bumpy road in Willow’s household. MiL is home from the Hospital and not thriving, she is feeling every year of 86 and is adjusting to her hospital experience.

My father, who has received definite instructions from the Doctor NOT TO MOW THE LAWN AGAIN, as he managed to break his ankle last time. Brilliant news, what we thought was a multiple break has become a single one and we are looking at 5 wks in a cast and he can go back to his old busy self.

Bonus! My Brother has arrived with my Niece, from Wisconsin (a 16 hr drive) She wanted to come up, to help Gramma to take care of Grampa, till the middle of July. This is my Brothers 1st visit since he moved to the states, 15 yrs ago, that has landed so close to my Birthday (21st). He has to leave tomorrow to return to work, but is leaving my niece as a gift :0)

    I have such a jar myself but haven’t though of it as a project. 😉 It’s definitely still to cool here to wear ankle socks. I have to stick with the woolen and long ones a little longer. Good luck with your family issues.

    I love the pooling on your ankle sock! the jar is a good idea =) I usually save all my scraps in a box and either use them to stuff toys and objects or to make stitch markers (there’s no point in my buying them because I just lose them!)

    ooooh, I love the sock! It will be a sassy pair once completed.
    I have a jar too. I’ve ended up using it for tying my handspun yarns. They are usually the perfect length.

    Nice ankle sock….I need to make some of these. I guess I might need to get a jar…..I just use a zippy sandwich bag….not very creative.

    Love the ankle sock! I have a bag where I keep my ends, they then go to my sons school for them to use in their art projects 🙂

    Love the ankle socks. All of the knit socks I have seen have all been the long ones. These are great!! I keep my yarn in a bag then I always say I will put it out for the birds come spring but as of yet it is all still in the bag. 😉

    Whoa glad your Dad’s ankle is not as serious as first thought. I have a 20 qt plastic garbage can in my office that I throw my short ends of yarn into. It’ll be awesome if I ever fill it up…or a little crazy. Love your sock!
