I have not been in the mood to blog. I have been knitting, but just not in the mood to photograph, resize, and blog the photos. And I've been unmotivated in my projects. I think it's the heat. And the stress I've been under because my baby is going into kindergarten. I'm not dealing with his getting bigger well. Anyway, on to the knitting.
I went to a De-Stash party in CT. I got to meet some great gals, Sarah, Christine, Annie (check out the little fishy stitchmarkers that she made for me!), Christine, Mary. Here's some pics from the party:
That pig is made of a big skein of yarn, and the cake? No, your eyes are not playing tricks on you...it's a ball of yarn. I believe both were made by Mary.
My finished objects for this week are a pair of footie socks using Alison's pattern, made of one ball of Rowan Cashsoft in gray and a smidge of a pale pink for the edging, and a mini sweater. The pattern is taken from Knit Christmas Stockings, and made in left over Nature Spun Sport from my mittens.
Yes, those are tabs from soda cans for size comparison. I'm saving them for a friend who donates them to Ronald McDonald house (I believe), who uses them as money for things like groceries.
I'm working now on another pair of socks for a cousin for Xmas. I'm waiting for more yarn for the previous pair of socks for a cousin (see here), and waiting for yarn from elann for an I do for myself. I'm hoping to get it soon so I can have it done and wearing it for the Knitty cruise on the 25th.
