Socks & Mitts

These beauties are on their way to Plainview via snail mail along with a Noah/Grandama/PopPop graduation photo mouse pad. It would be great if they were there by Friday for the Berg Chanukah Party.

Click the photo to see the red flecks in the socks. The mitts had to be soaked in hot water to get them a little snugger (thanks for the idea, Sam!)

I'm working on a tea cozy for my work-friend Elizabeth, also from the Noro yarn. Pictures soon!

Knitted Stirrup Cozies

If I was an OBGYN, I would definitely knit these for my patients! Now, would I be crazy enough to bring them in, if I were the patient? Hmmm....

One sock down, one to go


This is my very first sock, and it wasn't as scary as I thought it would be (of course, I had a little help from the sock pro aka JaKnit). On my next sock, I'm going to pick up even more stiches, because there was a hole in this one...not too large and definitely not going to deter me from wearing them. One of the ladies at the LYS told me I should really take a class to learn how to knit socks, but I would have to disagree. While a class may make the process less scary, with a little faith and perserverance, you will be just fine. The trick is to find a a pattern that spells everything out for you.

Bun in the Oven

No, definitely not me! But, someone else does. I read on some reality tv website that fills my head with useless information, but entertaining nonetheless, that Mariska Hargitay is expecting her first baby. Somehow, I made it to her website which is pretty damn cool. She's one of the main reasons I love Law and Order: SVU. I mean, I knew she was cool, but that cool??
