WOW What a way to welcome in the first day of my maternity leave and a MONDAY at that!!! First thing this morning, post man rings my doorbell bearing a cute little box with the FANCIEST set of needles you shall EVER see!! These things look fabo! Of course, I dug in IMMEDIATELY. I’m an organization freak and I had to fix it all up in its beautiful black binder. (I used to be a big fan of daytimers until palm pilots came along!) I love it! I know that I can go to staples and pick up any extra pockets I may need (or probably just place a yarn order from KP…. LOL)
I haven’t used any needles yet cuz I have to see what I want to cast on for first. 😀
But one tip I can suggest is to get the needle ID tags, remove all the needles from the cardboard thingie it comes in, and place a big needle, a small needle and their corresponding ID tags into the 3 pocket ziplock things. It’s much easier than fighting with the little elastic things holding down the needles on the cardboard.
Here are the Angora Baby Booties for GL. These were sooo easy to make! One evening is all it took. Couple of hours. Yarn is from webs. I had some left over and now I wanna order a couple more skeins to make a scarf with the rest of this. It’s unbelievably soft!
The Baudelaire socks are marching along nicely. I’m up to the gusset increases. This is going to be a wonderful heel that I’ll probably use in other toe-up socks I might make. I ended up ripping back to where the lace pattern started because the fact that I screwed it up was EATING me up inside! HAHAHA
Here are the colorful sock yarns I bought from KnitPicks. I really like the Dancing (pinkish tones). It’s stretchy – I think it will make a wonderful pair of summer anklets so I’ll cast on for those soon. The other yarn is Simple Stripes in the Crayon colorway which is MUCH MORE colorful in person!!
Necia I hope I done made you proud with my crayon yarn! HA!
