Vesper !

I also got a skein of Vesper sock yarn, which is appropriately named "trick or treat". I may hold out on making a pair of socks until September so they will be ready for plenty of October wear. I really love it..... I really love Halloween...I did get engaged at our Halloween party this past year and will be getting married in October of 09.


Has anyone made anything (socks) with this yarn?? I got some thru Ravelry swap and so far have not found a pattern to try it on. I hear it is splitty but that doesn't bother me. I am thinking maybe a pair of plain o' vanilla socks.

Easter Bunny ain't got sh*t on me!!

Made some really cute baskets tonite for the kiddies. I have fun buying the cute gifts and packing up the goodies but just really still don't like kids. Oh well... Everyone is getting alot of peeps!! YAY!
I made six baskets, four girly ones and two boys ones. Two year olds are hard to buy for! All those small parts!

Yarn Pirate + stash

I really wanted to join the Booty Club for Yarn Pirate but knew I wouldn't be home because I went on a day trip to Philly. It was all good because my stash just grew, alot. Anyway I hinted to Jer that maybe he would sign me up but I he didn't get the memo. I was able just now to take a peek at the site and sign ups were still being taken, so I just signed up. I hope this means there is still a spot open.

Ps - I will be adding stash to Ravelry, and a mass photo or two here on my blog. Yummy stash!

March Madness Socks

I started a pair of Monkey socks on Sunday afternoon. Here are some progression shots. Day 3 and so far I am one repeat and a toe away from a completed sock.

Day One

Day Two

Day Three
Pattern:Monkey by Cookie A
Yarn: Opal Neon color 1930
Needles: Size 1 dpns, metal
Mods: Did 5 repeats instead of six, 12 heel flap rows instead of 15 and did not twist stitches when picked up heel/gusset.

I love this pattern alot even though this is only the second time I am making a pair of Monkeys.... These are coming along well. I want to try the purl less version but I don't want to Monkey myself out.

Gotta love cell phone pictures!!
