Ordinary Weekend

I don't know who she is, but my Sockret Pal really rocks! Look at all the loot!
But best of all, looky here:

Those are the handknit socks she made. Just for me! I put them on last night and vowed never to take them off, though I did take them off. They are just so comfy and pretty. Thanks to whoever my Sockret Pal is.

In other sock news, Shawn wants a pair of socks in this:

It's Socks that Rock in Stormy Weather. So it looks like I will be making a lot of socks in the future.

I'm nearly done with the first sock, just a few more rows on the toe shaping. I am hoping that they fit. So far they do. I will finish the first one tonight and I promise pictures tomorrow, (assuming that they fit of course).

They would have been done but I was quite busy with this:

Shawn and Dalton. A love/hate relationship. Why? They are both jealous of each other. But Dalton was spreading this love this weekend and decided to make peace, even if only for a few minutes.

And then of course, I was busy with this:

It's amazing how time flies once a baby gets here. But how in the world did time stand still for those 8 months? *sigh* She's getting so big. But not too big that she can't wear the things I knit yet. I really need to get on the ball and finish the Sweet Pea Sacque and the Elann Pinwheel Sweater. (I am 1 1/2 of a sleeve away on the sweater.)

Last week I also had a chance to pick up a copy of Knit Scene. This was the first time I'd ever thumbed through the magazine and it's a really great magazine. I ♥ the Kenobi Jacket by Norah Gaughan. Looks like I need more yarn. (And maybe some more knitting time.)

Those are beautiful socks - and it looks like they fit perfectly too! S & D are so cute together! I know what you mean about time flying - my great nephew is 2 mos old. How did that happen. She's adorable as always!

I'm so glad you liked your last package. Its been fun shopping for you.

The extra sock yarn can be used to knit a pair of booties for your baby girl.

I have searched what seems to be the length and breadth of England and not ONE set of sock size bamboo needles to be had . I will think of something else ! and your package will be in the post on Monday, from your fav colour swap pal ,

Is that SRT photo in B/W or is that the actual colour of the yarn?

Love seeing the Scout updates... and I had to laugh with Shawn and Dalton's relationship! Is he jealous because the cat gets your attention? MEN!
