Stand-by, Twenty-Two of Fifty-Two

My poor little pup is on stand-by. She was supposed to arrive last night, but the small plane got detoured in Quebec. That meant they wouldn't be landing in Deer Lake til after the Air Canada cargo plane was gone. The weekend is iffy, so now it looks like she won't be here til Monday at least. I hope so, the forecast for Tuesday is snow. I picked up her food, treats, a baby Kong, leash, tie-out rope, etc, yesterday morning before I got the call. At least I have everything ready for when she does finally get here! Looks like she'll be going with the foster family for the weekend again. At least she won't be stuck in the shelter.

I finished a pair of Kroy Crayon Jacquard vanilla socks. They are just the plain old 60sts on 2.25mm needles, heel over 30sts, toe to 20sts thing. These are for the store. I started them on January 4, finished January 18. Worked on-and-off on them since I had a couple of other things to do, too. And I guess these make pair 22 of 52 for the 52PP.

Up next is a pair made with this in one of the blue shades. (Don't remember the color #, and I'm too lazy to go get it.) Don't know if I can get them done by Friday. If not it'll be one sock with an IOU. This is kind of a secret thing, but I don't think the recipient will read this, so I should be safe. If they do happen by it will be pretty obvious to them!
Got our other yarn order in today. Nothing too exciting there, but there were three orders in it for people. Finally got some new Handicrafter and two Kroy sock yarns that we were out of. Other than that it was just some Canadiana and Astra for stock and a couple of Classic Wools. The bamboo sock yarn is almost gone. We only had a variety bag, one of each color, so seven sold, five left. Not bad for just being put on the shelf the day before yesterday. I'll have to see if I can order a couple of more variety bags, plus I want to get their DK weight sock yarn. If that comes in variety bags I'll get two. We've been selling a lot of yarn lately, especially sock yarn.
I work tomorrow if any local knitters want to visit me. Saturdays are usually very slow.

Have a good weekend, all. Happy knitting!

Poor puppy. Hope she arrives on Monday.

I am very impressed with the striping on your socks. Perfect match.

I stopped in yesterday to get some bamboo yarn, but the ones still there were not colours I liked. So no yarn.

Your socks for the store look great! I am sure that someone will buy them. I can't wait to see the Austermann Step ones! Poor little puppy. :o(
