About me, myself, and I and the hobbies I have, including, but not limited to knitting. Oh, yeah, and my family too.

A Finished Object, and my Olympic Yarn

These are the jester booties from Zoe Mellor's Double Knits for Kids. They are so easy, and (IMHO) really cute. She says to put a pom-pom on the tip, but I put bells on them. Make it a bit more interesting for the kid.

I'll be giving these to my boss's daughter, who just had her 3rd son on Saturday.

And, here is my Olympic yarn for the Mamluke socks. It's the Takhi Cotton Classic. It's been 'aging' in my stash for just the right moment. OK, so I'm lying. I'm so broke right now I can't buy anything new. DH's van is terminal, so I've been driving him back and forth to work, about a 15 mile round trip ever time. Plus taking DS to daycare, and then getting me to work. I'm beat.

I'm pretty excited to start the socks, especially since DH will be gone this weekend, and won't know how much time I actually spend knitting. Mwhahahahahaha!!!!!!! I just hope that I am actually able to get these done in 16 days. Wish me luck, ya'll.

There is a time for everything,
a season for every activity
under heaven. A time to be
born and a time to die. A
time to plant and a time to
harvest. A time to kill and
a time to heal. A time to
tear down and a time to
rebuild. A time to cry and
a time to laugh. A time to
grieve and a time to dance.
A time to scatter stones
and a time to gather stones.
A time to embrace and a
time to turn away. A time to
search and a time to lose.
A time to keep and a time to
throw away. A time to tear
and a time to mend. A time
to be quiet and a time to
speak up. A time to love
and a time to hate. A time
for war and a time for peace.

May this be
your time to laugh,
embrace & receive
personal peace,
Dr. Howdy

Very cute booties!
And good luck on the socks. I think my Olympic project is doomed to failure, but well....you know.
