Mew, not MULE! And a bunny.

I’m so excited to have finished a pair of socks – it feels like forever! I started these socks back in September and kindof just lost steam with them. But they are done (and I immediately cast on for “Lenore”). For whatever reason I’m having trouble saying “Bartholomew’s Socks” – in my head I keep hearing “Bartholomule’s socks” Oh well. I’m still in love with Cat Bordhi’s New Pathways book and will keep knitting socks from there, but I’m going to take a break from it. I want to get the book spiral bound to make it lay flat a bit easier.

They are quite comfy, the heel is snug, and I’m looking forward to wearing them.

Also finished is the “Bunny Tails” hat from “Itty Bitty Knits” – I didn’t do the tail, and honestly didn’t really like this hat until I added the bits of ribbon at the base of the ears. That little touch really made a world of difference.

The yarn is Lousia Harding Kashmir Aran DK – I didn’t quite use up the whole skein to make the 0-6 months size, and I have one more ball. Nice to knit with.

Today while trying to clip Lorelai’s nails I nicked her thumb – not fun! Can’t really put a band-aid on it… the way she usually holds her hands is the thumb inside her fist, so there’s pressure applied. We head to the Drs tonight for a check up and a full set of shots. That should be interesting – hopefully it will be smooth.

Wii would like to knit

Yesterday Dan brought home a Wii. It’s very very cool. I may actually get back into playing video games again. But then, when would I knit? I’ll make the time certainly. Because I have a new book – didn’t intend to buy it yesterday after the SnB, it sort of just happened (Sorry Sam!) – I now have been drooling over Cat Bordhi’s “New Pathways for Sock Knitters”. And I’m so well intentioned: I will work gauge swatches, I will do the baby practice socks, I will work my way through the adult socks. It’ll be like “Julie & Julia” only “Becca & Cat”. Truly. Amazing book. Love the layout, very user friendly – color coordinated words / pictures, dpns or 2 circulars, unique patterns, yarns I have already… Good stuff.
