gone, baby, gone

The hubby man is gone....again. He's in a plane right now on his way to Detroit. *sigh*. I think he purposefully keeps his boss' email from me to prevent me from sending him nasty emails.
On another note, I did another chemo cap to send to the organizer of along with the pattern I wrote. It isn't the original yarn I used, but its pretty soft so overall I'm happy with it. I've been designing a sock for my husband since he is my number one sock recipient. I managed to pin him down to give it an initial try on today and its too small and its not good on the stretchiness to get it over the foot thing. So, back to the drawing board and back to frogging. He picked out the colors for the sock so it makes it hard to see the little cable fabric in the sock. Its basically the same pattern as I used for the chemo cap. I guess I'll add some plain ribbing to the back of the sock to make it more stretchy.
I think my first pair of cable socks from Holiday knits may end up being an adversarial sock. For those who know me well, there's been some issues with my father these last few weeks and he was placed in a nursing home yesterday. At this point, I don't know if he even knows who I am and if he does, he might would throw something at my head. He's in the mental frame of mind that the other day he announced to the staff that he had grown another reproductive organ overnight. (I'm giving you the less crude version). Anyway, since I've been known to knit socks for those whom I hold far and away from my heart, these socks may go to him .

As long as I don't have to knit for Ripster we'll be ok. I'd actually rather knit for meany Fitch.
