Frogged Duckies

So I was knitting some house socks out of Bernat Satin Sport yarn, and I am sad to say that the socks were a disappointment.  😦  I completed the first sock, put it on, and was horrified.  The pattern was okay, but I would have changed the placement of the heel flap.  The directions didn’t clarify that I should center the lace, and as it was y first lacy sock I didn’t know I was supposed to.  As soon as I began knitting the length of the foot, I noticed that the lace was lopsided!  The eyelet/yarn over section should have begun a few stitches later, not where I put them. 

 

Also, the yarn is a nice choice for scarves and hats, maybe even a sweater, but it is terrible for socks!  I could literally feel the acrylic rubbing against itself when I put the sock on!  Needless to say I was very disappointed with my sock.  I will once again rip out a project made from this yarn.  So far I have ripped out two blouses and one sock made from this yarn.  I think I will try either a hat or a scarf pattern with this yarn (I have about 2 1/2 balls at about 220 yards per ball).  I wish I had it in both white and black so that I could make my nephew the pirate hat I have been meaning to make.  The pattern calls for sport weight or dk yarn, and I only have worsted weight yarn in black and white. 

On a completely different note, I decided to cut Peanut’s hair today while he was in the tub playing.  Hubby ran in with scissors, snip, snip, and it was over.  Peanut didn’t even notice.  However, I want to cut it more since it is starting to look more and more like a bob hair cut to me.  Maybe we should just shave it all off.  We have slippers, but I am just afraid to accidentally cut him in any way.  We have discussed cutting his hair while he sleeps, but I am apprehensive since that would mean that his hair might be very uneven and there would be hair all over the sheets.
