A couple of things

I finished Allison's ****** birthday present!
Will post pictures of her with it when she receives them!

Molly loves the new tv:

and her "Joyhouse B and B" blanket/bed! Thanks Grandpa!

I purchased two knowknits.com knit sacks this weekend at The Tangled Web. Since I am completely consumed with sock knitting, I thought I would give them a try. Verdict: LOVE THEM!!! Perfect for a smaller project like socks, scarves, mittens or maybe a kiddie sweater. Attaches to my bag or belt loop or wrist for portable knitting, which is perfect when waiting for the bus!


As you can see, I went with the Camo Print...very stylish I think.

So I'm making progress on my THIRD attempt at my Rockin Sock Club Sock. I had to go down to zero's, which is killing my hands, but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the yarn and the pattern is fun. I did my first short row toe and am now officially obsessed with toe up socks. This toe is amazing and literally appears out of 32 provisionally cast on stitches through the magic of short rows and W&T's.

These are going SO well, that tonight I'm starting a cable/twist pattern in my "emerald isle" STR colorway in anticipation of my trip, which is just two short months from now!

Finally, I don't know when Wendy is going to blog again-you'd have to ask her. Yes, I see her frequently, but I just dont know what is going on with her and her blog. She is flattered that she is missed...and I trust she will be back again soon...as perhaps may be the podcast.

So brave you are to knit the toe up sock. I can't wait to start mine, but...I"m a chicken. The Toe up scares me.

I jut finished my second toe (I start both socks at the same time, I haven't finshed one yet!) Isn't that short row toe the coolest? i love how the garter hides the wraps so you don't have to knit them.

So , I think you guys should decide if you are going to do anymore podcasts or not and let your listeners know. It is VERY hard NOT KNOWING. Should I delete you from my itunes list or not? Don't mean to be rude but I really like you guys and need to know if I should move on.....

Hmmm. I too would love to hear you again, but it's no trouble at all leaving you on my list while I wait. Really.

I tried the sock though from the top down on size 1's. The cables are truly cool. I turned the heel and switched to size 0's and it's way too loose. I have given up on the pattern as of now. Perhaps another day with another yarn...

I've started again with the yarn with another pattern but am feeling the lace itch lately as the warmer weather approaches. Can't wait to see how your sock comes out!
