Two in One Day

Two FO's in one day...

First, the Regia Crazy Colors socks (a la Bonne Marie. She finished hers before me, and her stripes match, but mine are done!

I also finished the Baby Argyle Vest...the pattern is from one of the Debbie Bliss books (I forget which one).

The purple is Knitpicks Shine Sport, and the argyles are leftover TLC Cotton Plus. Cute!

A few people asked about our sink - it's a Pegasus composite sink from Home Depot. It's some kind of acrylic-blend material. It is niiiiiiiice.

I'm home sick today - I have a pretty nasty cold. I've been hanging out on the couch all day trying to set a record for most tissues used in a 24-hour period. Back to it.

Andra's Blanket of Many Colors is done...

I think I'm all log-cabined out - this is the 4th blanket I've done in maybe 6 months and it's time to take a break! But it's super-cute and you can't beat Sugar and Cream cotton for babies.

I started an argyle sweater for Andra - it will probably be done by the next time I post. Obviously I knit faster than I post...

Over the weekend there was more home improvement. My parents were in town and my dad put in a new kitchen sink and faucet (I did manage to squeeze my big self under the sink to try to help, but I wasn't much help overall. Moral support.)

I love my sink.

Ainsley moved into her new room today...

I tried to get her in the pictures, but she wouldn't stand still. Go figure. We had some technical difficulty with her headboard, so that will go up tomorrow, and the space above her dresser is pretty bare, so I'll have to put something there.

I finished up the Monkey socks and I like them! They're done in Claudia Handpaint, and even though the two hanks were of the same dye lot, and both stored in the same dark closet, one of them is noticeable fainter than the other. Oh welll...I washed them and they got pretty fuzzy, which I'm not too happy about either, so we'll see how they hold up.

I also got my hands on some Regia in a crazy green hue. (Looks familiar? I saw it on Bonne Marie's blog and totally swiped the idea. Thanks Ebay!) One sock down (these knit pretty fast)...

And Arwen reads People magazine by osmosis. Even a cat has to get the goss...

I gotcha stuff

It's a FO-stravaganza! A FO-scapade? A FO-xibition?

First, the Pea Pod (or something) sweater from Interweave on the web for the upcoming bub...

The picture is bad - I apologize. It needs buttons, which I'll get to eventually. I did this in Paton's Grace, and it turned out pretty well. Should be a nice summer sweater for the baby in the house (until she pukes on it after about 5 minutes).

Next up, some socks! A slipped-stitch rib from Sensational Knitted Socks in Socks That Rock (Farmhouse).

More socks, but socks from leftover Cherry Tree Hill (yum!!!)

And one Monkey sock in Claudia Handpaint.

And a partidge in a pear tree!

Next time, completed (hopefully) socks, pictures of Ainsley's new bedroom (think purple and GIRLY) and a picture of a baby blanket.
