my first socks!

Two thirds of the way into my first pair of socks and I am just smitten! They are adorable little bed socks that will be perfect with a pair of clogs… If only I hadn’t given my clogs away… Guess I’ll have to get another pair!

I’m using the Turkish Bed Socks pattern by Churchmouse Yarns and Teas.

car knitting

Sitting in the car while the baby naps in the back… Don’t worry, the AC is on!

Always have a knitting project close by in case you get an opportunity to work on it!

This is a pinwheel blanket that I’m making for Amelia.

I can still knit!

So, as it turns out, having two kids is insane! Good, but man oh man, it’s all consuming. Now that baby A is nine months old I am just starting to find a little time to knit again.

Just thought I’d let y’all know that I’ve still got it.

Today I’m working on a rainbow felted water bottle holder for big L, who’s starting kindergarten at the Waldorf school in the fall.

Oh yeah, and I got some new lenses and flashes for my hipstamatic app. This is taken with the Holga lens on Ina’s 1969 film with a red gel flash. Lovin’ it!

I’m using Malabrigo worsted yarn.

Sweet Baby Girl

This has nothing to do with knitting, but isn’t my baby sweet and cute?! Guess I’m partial, but, you know.
