I'm totally in love...
.... with Lorna's Laces. Why I haven't tried this before, I have no idea! Let's just call it pure stupidity. I'm taking a sock class at the YarnHaus to learn how to do 2 socks toe up on one needle.
Here is the progress so far...
I'm using LL's Uptown and the colors are so fun. Heidi suggested that I just do a simple pattern for this first pair on one circular, so I thought this would be a fun color without a pattern. I really like doing socks this way. it feels a little slow, but I know it is going to be such a great feeling to have them both done at the same time. The only thing I know I'm not going to like about it is that it is a little less portable than doing one sock at a time. So, I think I'll just have to have 2 different pairs of socks on the needles. I've decided that since my body is going to be changing dramatically the next 7 months, that I need to nix the idea of making sweaters for myself. Although, I'm still going to finish Sitcom Chic. So, I figured I'll be making myself a ton of socks as well as lots of baby knitting.
Oh, and I must have been hiding under a rock, but I didn't know that Lucy Neatby made sock yarn. The YarnHaus had some so of course I had to pick some up.
It is the Aqarius colorway. How fun is that?! It is so super soft. I thought it would be great for Project Spectrum.
I also got a FABULOUS package from my Felted SP. It came on Saturday and totally made my day!
She wrapped each individual piece in different pink wrapping paper - she knows me so well! Inside were 2 skeins of Sierra Quatro, a skein of Naturally Nazareth, a cute card and Pursonalities. I saw it at the bookstore and was totally coveting it, but I didn't end up buying it! Thank you SP! I love it!!
Other than that, things around here are pretty darn boring. All I seem to do is sleep! I'll take that over vomiting any day, but it makes it a little hard to get things done during the day. I can get things done in the middle of the day, but by about 4:00, my day is over. How sad is that? I'm just really lucky that I don't have another child to take care of as well - just a husband. I know the next baby won't be quite as easy!
