Here is the little outfit that I made for my new nephew: Gannon! My pictures are really crappy, sorry....
I haven't seen the little bugger yet, but I have seen pics and he is too cute. Weighed in at 8.2 lbs last Thursday.
I had a very nice weekend. Some knitting accomplished. The first sock for my DH completed and second sock started.
Tah, Tah for now.

Of the list from the last post only the short socks for me got finished. I have finished some Monkey socks for myself in a very cool, crazy colors by Koigu. I am currently working on some socks for the DH. Unfortunately the golf cap that I started for him was not really difficult but definately needed my undivided attention and well.....I just don't have it to begin with! :)
I'm also working on some Bellatrix socks in this color. I'm having knitter's ADD because I'm also working on a shawl and then a baby kimono/hat for my new nephew who has not arrived yet...
Let's see.....what else........ oh yeah! Daughter turned 18 and is off to college this weekend! Very glad for her that this part of her life has started and I think she will do well. I know she's mine but she is wonderful!
Also on the needles.. cuz, like I need a few more projects! A lace scarf .
Ok, so not any pics from me but a few links.

The socks on the right, the purple-ish color, are the Lorna's Laces-Mother Lode I received from my "Sock Knitters Unite" swap partner. The pattern is Dublin Bay by Mossy Cottage.
So that's some of what I've been up to. My stash has increased IMMENSELY!!! Like, I've got a problem!!!!
Tah, Tah for now!!

Look what I got from the "Toothfairy" aka: Aimee in Ann Arbor, MI!!!!
She did a really great job. I'm so psyched about the yarn, I have a pattern picked out already!!
The treats are great too!! I got a project bag, some hand cream, Ghiradelli chocolate carmels, hot chocolate, sticky notes and a black sheep tape measure. The yarn is Shibui Knits and Lorna's Laces. Now all I need is to finish up some projects so that I can cast on with this!!!

So this is the package I sent out on Tuesday to my swap partner from Sock knitters of the World unite and swap. I'm so excited now to hear when she gets it and if she likes it. I had LOTS of fun shopping for someone I don't know but loves knitting socks like I do!!! I'm also excited to be waiting for my package to come and to see who it's from!!
I've been terribly sick..........:( going to the dr's later today.

I'm also guilty of being hooked to the knitter's crack: Ralvary!!!!!!
I've joined several groups, do alot of reading but little commenting. I also read another dozen or so blogs!!
Not much new here. I've started another pair of socks. These are for my Dad, his birthday is March. I'm also hoping to help a fellow knitter with a project that she is working on that needs to be done in early March.
FO news: Back in December, I went to the Post Office to collect our mail and in the lobby was Nancy from Spin a Yarn. She was there supporting the Christmas postage and had a contest going. I WON!! So, what did I win? Well, I won a skein of "Comfort" by Berroco, a pair of size 8/16" circs, her "Cozy Cap" pattern book and some Spin a Yarn sticky notes. Last week I was in between projects so I decided to start a beaded hat, using my winnings, for the Cozy Cap project. I finished it but haven't dropped it off yet.
Well, that's it for today folks!
Tah, Tah, for now.

While on vacation, I knit on a sock with yarn from Artwalk Club. OF COURSE I did not do a guage swatch as I have knit plenty of socks and "think" I know what I'm doing!! So I got the leg, heel and 1/2 of foot done before I decided that it did seem pretty small and maybe I should try it on.................yep, should have done a guage swatch!! So the whole thing went back to stash!!
I then started a sweater that has been in the stash since almost the beginning........back and two fronts done, part of sleeve...............yep, got kinda of bored and had a sock jones!!
So I am now working on firsts of two pairs!! One yarn from Artwalk Club, the other Claudia handpainted in "Bootcamp". Both really great projects to be working on. Although, I might have to put them down for a while to work on Birthday socks for the nephew. Who, by the way will be shipping out to sea in a couple of weeks due to a new job as a merchant marine!!
Tah, Tah for now!!
