Monday Morning Update

I finally have a finish to share!!!!  My  Baby Girl's socks are done!

I finished them off last night, and while they are a *little* snug, they fit pretty well. 

Baby Girl saw them and wanted to know if she could try them on.  

They fit her perfectly!!!  So it looks as if she has a pair of socks for next winter.  That is if her foot stops growing.  She's a ladies 7 right now and she's only 10. 

I started sock #1 on 2/17 and finished weaving in all the ends on 5/20.  I am SUCH a slow knitter.  The yarn is Lornas Laces sport weight in Mt Creek #56 and the cuff/heel/toe purple is Silja #392 (it's a yarn I bought a LONG time ago from the LYS that has since changed owners and then closed down).  The Lorna's Laces is a really nice yarn, the Silja would not be bought again.  It's not a bad yarn, but it's a bit rough.  I may add it to another sport weight and make some bulky charity socks with the left overs.

Now that these socks are done, I really dont have alot going on.  I have my ongoing blanket squares (if I could find them) and I have the 2nd fingerless mitt to do (I'm suffering from SMS).  However I DO have some projects to start.  When I was asking one SIL when my other SIL was due, she told me and said, "Why, do you have to finish up some projects?"  Hmmmm, guess I should START some projects so I have something to finish up!!  We plan on going up the beginning of July so I have a little over a month to do something.  Glad babies are small!!!  I played in my yarn this AM and found some yarn to make some socks and some other yarn to make a sweater set.  Not sure if I'll use that yarn or not, I had another yarn in mind, but I cant find that one either.  It's probably in the basket of yarns that I haven't looked thru yet.  My sock yarn and charity yarn are in order but everything else is sort of a mess.

I'll keep you posted with the next set of projects coming up.
