Almost my swan song

I’ll admit, I got a little burned out on blogging, yes the month of March threw me a major curve ball, but truth be told, I got a little burned out.  I found myself saying “Oh, I’ll blog about such & such tomorrow”, then tomorrow came and gone and no blogging .  And with family sickness, I just didn’t feel like blogging about fevers, sniffles, or the fact that we went through 2 boxes of tissue in 1 week – ick!.  But I feel that after my nice little “vacation” from blogging, I can return back to it with a renewed energy.  And on a side note, my Dad is having surgery tomorrow so my mind has been majorly preoccupied.

But on the upside of family sickness and not being able to do anything except sit on the couch with 2 sick babes, I got a lot of knitting done! YAY!

I got my shorties done!  And they fit perfect!  As far as the stretchy bind off, that I had trouble with the first time around, as I was binding off, I was also increasing into the knit stitches.  Sadly though, these socks were takin’ by my Mom one afternoon when she came down to help out with the kids.  damn! I knew I should’ve hid them!

Pattern:  Wendy’s Generic Toe-Up Sock Pattern
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock in Life’s a Beach
Needles: Size 2
Mods:  Worked short row toe.

Other knitting that got completed was my other Vine Lace Sock (ahem, that was from last summer).  Completed while watching this movie here.  Makes perfect movie socks as the pattern is super easy to remember.

Pattern:  Vine Lace Socks
Source: Socks, Socks, Socks
Yarn: 2 skeins Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in Yellow (the yellow is really soft and feminine, my color was way off on my camera)
Needles:  Size 1 and size 2
Mods:  None

Other sock knitting that got completed was L.’s “Lost Boy” socks (as she calls them)

Pattern: My own! Thank you very much!
Source: um, me!
Yarn: Knit Picks Imagination in Lost Boys (hence she calls them her “lost boy” socks)
Needles:  Size 1 and Size 2
Worked cuff down with a short row heel, yarn was super nice to work with and also washes up nicely scratch that – yarn DOES NOT wash up nicely!  It felts even though the yarn label said “machine wash”.  Now KP changed their yarn label saying hand wash only.  I have to make L. another pair and hope that I have enough yarn.

Not to mention that I got 1 of K.’s socks done, other is being worked on as we speak (just no photos yet).

      Yeah, I figured my Mom would’ve stole them. Eh, just means I can buy more yarn and knit up some more.
