Knitting? KNITTING!Thanks to Baby A's habit of cluster-feeding for literally hours at a time, I'm managing to get some knitting done. Specifically, the Rick socks in koigu kpppm. I loved knitting these (even though they were top-down!) and I wore them yesterday. Actually, they aren't my favorite socks to wear - they are a little big around the ankles so they slouch a little bit. It does appear, however, that they don't slouch down into my shoes, so I'm happy. Plus, the fact that I have a pair of socks is a bonus - I just knit these for the entertainment value!
The color in the first picture is a little more true, but Abby couldn't resist a chance to help me model them:
What next? I just placed the order for the yarn for my dad's 2009 christmas fair isle vest, but that won't arrive for a bit (seeing as it's coming from Shetland!), so I've cast on for the Bex socks. I'm still a little skeptical about how they'll fit, but I'm only 6 rows into them, so I can't really judge yet.
So that takes care of the knitting. How's Baby A doing?
She's learning lots of important lessons from Daddy...
... getting all dressed up for Easter Sunday...
... and having a blast in her exersaucer.
