Well, we survived the holidays at our house quite nicely! Had a wonderful time, and six pairs of my socks now have new homes. My DH is amazed at how comfy his Manly Giant socks are, and I am sure more will be produced for him in the future... Sigh...
Soon the last of the tinsel will be down and - before we know it, spring will be on the way. For sure - as we received the first Burpee Seed catalouge in the mail today! DH will be pleased to see it - as he is the gardener of the family. I do hope we get a little snow here in Iowa before the crocus pops thru the ground, however. Our son is in New Mexico, and his recent note spoke of falling snow!! (Please - Please - just a little snow here!!)
Knitting progress has been made since last post. I have completed my Chain Link Socks, the current KAL with the Six Sox group. I think I will wear them quite a bit, as they are "me".
I started a sweater for Herky, and am at the point that he must try it on before I move further. I will post "the fitting" later. I think he and his mom are stopping by tonight.
And, I started this CIC toddler sweater last evening. What a delightful knit!! I am not used to bulky yarn, and huge needles - wow - it flies off the needles! This is the Cozy in Cables toddler sweater designed by Marguerite of Stitches of Violet fame. This is just a lovely pattern, so very entertaining to knit. My DH had a point, however, when he questioned the wisdom of light yellow for a CIC sweater.... DUH!! I promise I won't make that mistake again:
As is evidenced by these colors. Yes, I revisited my going out of business LYS, and picked up a few more skeins of Lamps Pride Bulky. More toddler sweaters to come... (In my defense, I really went after size 10 1/2 DPNS - and just happened to notice there was more yarn availabe......)
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it!
