Little Bunny Foo Foo

I finished the Little Bunny Foo Foo socks. Yay!

And the up close:


Little Bunny Foo Foo Socks

Yarn: Little Bunny Foo Foo, light weight, by Socks That Rock

Pattern: Baby Fern from "More Sensational Knitted Socks" by Charlene Schurch

Gauge: 7 sts=1" on US 2's

Mods: I used US 1 DPN's for the K1, P1 ribbing for a tighter fit.

I've already started another pair. For Shawn. In Koigu. Yum! I really need to get on the ball. Fall is only 6 months away, but I have a feeling if I continue to procrastinate then I won't have the Cabled Tunic done for another 18 months.

In other news: I took Scarlett to the shelter. I didn't want to, but it had to be done. I miss her. And that's all I have to say about that.

I can't say there's too much going on. Shawn has decided to go on the racing circuit with this r/c cars. In return for this Saturday night races, I will get one night of knitting a week. I'm looking forward to a few baby/child free hours of knitting. Some days I can't even get a stitch in edgewise at home.

Our room is painted. No pix right now though. I'm waiting on picking out the new bedset and some other decor. You'll just have to wait.

The socks look GREAT! Wow, one free knitting night a week? I wonder what I'd have to do to get that :)

I'm sorry to hear about scarlett. I know how hard that can be.

Love the Bunny Foo Foo colorway and that pattern together. Looks as though there's no pooling, which is good. I also just bought that book, so those are in my future. Love your blog.
