My Sweet Lunch Date

Do you remember the sweet little sweater I showed you a couple months ago that I made for my niece Morgan? She has grown into it and wore it yesterday when she came to visit for lunch with her mom and big brother! She is so adorable! I had a great afternoon with her.
She was completely pooped out by the time they left.  It must be because it's so much fun at Auntie's house :-)  (I apologize for the sideways picture.  I haven't figured out yet how to rotate pictures with this new blogger format)

On the knitting front, I have plenty going on.  I finished the first Clandestine sock.  I can't say that it's my favorite pattern to knit, but I really love the way it looks finished.  It may stay a single sock for a bit though before I tackle the second one.
I cast on the March Rockin Sock Club sock pattern, Redbud.  It  so pretty and I was ready to knit something that wasn't blue!
I also cast on Pointelle for the Knit Sock Love KAL.  I chose Skinny Bugga in Acmon Blue from my stash as it is a sponsor yarn for this pattern, and I like to use sponsor products when I can.  I'm not sure I'm loving it though.  The pattern seems lost.  I'm not sure if it's the yarn or the color or if I just don't have enough pattern knit yet to give it a chance to shine.  After a couple days of thought I've decided that I'm going to knit another 6 rounds or so on this one and I'm also going to cast on in a different yarn.  Then I'll decide which one I want to continue with.
I also started my 2nd Firestarter sock. I took this picture in the morning and I finished the gusset and started the heel turn while waiting for Chandler during lacrosse practice in the afternoon.  I think I'm going to focus on this sock for the next couple days so that I can finish it for the end of the month.
That would be two finished pairs of socks in one month!  Woohoo!


  1. Aww! You wore her out ;) The sweater looks cute on her! BTW I don't like the new blogger layout either. My browser doesn't either and I can't see the top toolbar when posting.

    As for pictures, I always add via my flickr account so can't help you :(

  2. It's nice to see our finished items being worn by the recipient.

    You are speeding right along in the sock department. I am at a snails pace with that lately...
