More done, however.

I finished Mom's Mitts, and I have pics of those and Grandma's socks and Jake's b-day. I was going to show you these pics. However, I apparently have misplaced my camera. I probably left it at my Moms (which is the last place I remember taking pics) or it fell out of my purse at home or in the car (note to self: check the car). Urg. If it is at Mom's I wont get it for a couple weeks. Maybe she can get the pics off my memory card? I also have to remember to post Jake's 8 year old picture. Hmm.

Today we were supposed to go to lunch for a co-workers birthday (12 days late)but she's out sick. Normally I wouldn't care, and I did have some lunches in the freezer so it's not a big deal but I didn't bring anything yarn related to work on. I have 2 2nd socks in progress, both with only a few inches left on the foot. So I am thisclose to having 2 whole pairs of socks. Oh well. Guess my hands will be idle during All My Children. They can use a rest I suppose, since they are protesting from the abuse they suffered during the rush to finish Grandma's socks.

That's really kinda it.

Done. And then some.

I finished my Grandmother's socks yesterday. I was a little worried that I wouldn't have them done in time for the b-day celebration today but I did. Then, I wove in the ends of Mom's socks, and wrapped them both by 4. That gave me a chance to work on my Zoom Zoom socks on the way to and from Diz for Jake's birthday dinner at T-Rex. I'll post a couple pics and some video on Monday but we had a really great time even if it was 982 degrees outside.

Last night we were watching the 2nd episode of TruBlood and I worked a bit on the 2nd of Mom's Mitts. I really dont have much left to do on it, but I have a knitting-related injury and really need to stop for a bit. Apparently I stabbed my right pointer with a very sock needle and it HURTS! Especially when I'm knitting with it. Oh, the price we pay! lol.

So, in a bit I'll head to Church, then to my Mom's. We're celebrating Jake's, my Mom's and my Grandma's birthdays. I made some cake. It'll be fun!

More on Monday when I can post pics. Happy Father's day.

Updates and Lots of pics

I know it's been a while but really I haven't had much to report that didn't require pics. Here are some works in progress, finished baby quilts and my new sock yarn.

Sheldon. Sheldon neeeds his shell and a new "outfit" but even though he is living in my project bag that goes with me everywhere, he's on the back burner. Er, so to speak.

Mom's Mitts. These are almost done and I will give them to her when they are. They are not presents really, just something I thought would be fun to knit and she's the recipient with the coldest hands. They need about 2 inches and a thumb to be done:

Grandma's socks. These need to be done by Sunday. I am concerned. I love them, the yarn is stretchy and great to work with. I have about 4 inches on one and 6 on the other to go. Daunting.

I forgot to take an updated pic of Zoom Zoom (the test knit socks) but here is one done. The other one has about 4" to go:

Here are the finished baby quilts. The mom is having back labor and the twins are 6 lbs a piece but not here yet. Probably in the next day or so I bet. I LOVE how these turned out and I think I will try to crochet something similar.

And finally, my new Smooshy. I LOVE this yarn. I don't know what I'm gonna make with it but it'll be awesome!

A few pics. No really!

Look what we FINALLY got here! I actually managed to not buy anything. I know, I was impressed too.

Enjoying some watermelon:

The fruit of Jake's labor (he made like 12 of these):

A sock I test knit and really enjoyed!:

That's it for now, I swear I'll start blogging more when I'm back at work! lol. 2 more weeks!
