I'm sorry it's been almost 3 weeks since my last update. Let's see, what's happened since my last update?
Well, on the 10th, my Cousin had her baby! It's a Girl! Baby Grace Ann was born on 10/10/08 at 12:53pm. Click here to see her online birth announcement. My cousin loved all of the little baby things I knit, and I can't wait to see baby Grace wearing them :)
I haven't done much in the way of knitting lately. I've been pretty unmotivated. I've worked a bit on sock #2 in the pair I'm knitting for my friend. That sock has suffered a little set back though. Last night as I was getting ready for bed, I found that sock WIP laying on my bed, needles missing and it had SEVERAL dropped stitches. Before this incident I was almost done with the gusset, now I need to frog it back to the heel flap and re-knit. I don't have a dog or cat to blame this on, so it had to be one of the kids. When the boys get home from school, they're all going to get a talking to about owning up to their actions. They should know by now that if they would have told me about it when it happened that it wouldn't be as big of a deal.
I've also been doing a row here and there on the mittens I'm knitting. for the pair I'm knitting for my mom, I'm about 3/4 of the way through mitten #2, and for the pair I'm knitting for my sister, I'm about 1/3 through mitten #2. If I were more motivated It wouldn't take long to finish both pairs, only a couple of evenings if the movie I put in isn't too interesting...lol.
It feels as though we only had about a week of Autumn weather. The past several days the temps have been dipping into the 20's at night and hovering in the 40's at mid-day. Oh well, this means that it's time to use the wonderful handknit socks I've made. The other day I wore a pair of commercially made socks and my feet were freezing all day. UGH! I'm sticking to my handknit ones from now on.
Once I get a bit more progress made on some of my projects, I'll update with some pictures. Until then, Stay warm!
