HEY CARIN!

ok, carin, are you happy now? the toe has been kitchenered on the final vanilla sock of doom!
mark and i cleaned the bedroom out today, and i found it (but not my camera, so it HAS to be at my house), and it cried at me. ok, ok. so now i gotta wash them (the other one has some mocha coffee creamer on it, lol)

however, i finished a few other things first, t oday.

i finished sean's hat! he's thrilled with it, and i think it's cute:
i did have to frog about 2 inches in the wide turquoise/teal area yesterday, because somehow i ended up picking up extra stitches, but that was quickly rectified. yes, the ties are pink. but it's a manly pink (sean agrees, lol).
i also started and finished these today:
yes, they are tiny. the AC4C project this month is for an NICU in Las Vegas, and these are 2 1/2" long along the sole. i had some baby-colored sock looking yarn, and used size 2 needles. however, i had to alter the pattern, because the way it was written, with this itty bitty yarn, they would have been 1 3/4" long. they don't put booties on preemies that tiny. they are cute, though, aren't they?

ok, i'm done. i'm tired, and i'm fighting a sock pattern. well, actually, the sock pattern looks fine so far (i'm test knitting a pattern) but i had a major brain fart, and left out two entire rows, and since i'm lousy at picking sock yarn back up, i just frogged the whole shooting match (i only had about an inch and a half, anyway).

YAAAAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYY!!!!! *does the happy kitchener dance* I'm about ready to do the same thing to my first "ugly sock". Then I'm going to pick through my sock yarn to find something to do Miss Lime's pattern in.
