Springtime in Paris est fini

I finished the Springtime in Paris socks! I really liked this pattern. It knitted up really quickly.

I went to a new yarn shop in Stratford called Janet Kemp and fell in love with some Opal in light blue that I thought would be great for my sister, so my stash has been enhanced again!
I casted on some socks with the new Opal and I'm deciding if its working before I post a pic.
Tomorrow we are having our home visit to adopt a rescue dog, so we are keeping our fingers crossed. Hopefully we will get a dog and I will be able to post pics of her. (It will be a her!)

I'm halfway through the Springtime in Paris sock for the Six Sox KAL. (Button to be added shortly to the sidebar!) Here it is. I also have a car sock and an upstairs sock on the needles, kind of plain ribbed socks, one in Mountain Bearfoot and one in Art Yarns sock yarn. They will be short too, just because I may run out if I make "tall" socks!

I'm trying to get bvack to the sweater, but I haven't had a lot of time to sit and knit in one place. The sweater is a bigger project and I've been knitting in cars, the doctors office etc. I am going to finish that by the end of the month though!!

Long time...

It has been a long time since I've been able to post. We had a major bout of illness run through the family as well as my little ones birthday and the associated parties. I've been knitting through it all and will post pics this afternoon.

I will also share the sweater from hell with you.

See you later

OK Here is the update. I finished my Koigu socks

Pattern: Cat Bordhi's Socks Soar On Two Circular Needles - Columbine Peak
Wool: Koigu KPPM
Needles Addi Size 2

I also posted to March Sweater Madness and showed them my sleeve, and we will see where we go from there.

I feel good knowing that all of these things have been updated. Now I can sleep!

Sweaters, and Socks and Strep Oh My!

Currently three out of four members of my household have strep throat right now. One is getting tested on his way home from work. So this is not turning out to be the best week ever. I am so late on all of my posting and taking pictures and everything else. I have managed to read all of the blogs that I love and need to attach their links to this blog so if anyone ever reads it they might also see where I go during the day.

I finished my March Koigu socks and need to post a picture here as well SAM3 KAL. I have started a sweater for March Sweater Madness. I have one sleeve almost finished. I'm not going to win BUT I may finish a sweater in March. Yeah!

People have also been making sock requests like crazy...

You know what I'm going to go and take pictures now.

More later
