First up-Impressionnisme socks knit out of some lovely Patons Stretch Socks gifted to me by my friend Gwen back in 2011. I promptly knit up the first sock and then I don't know what happened. Maegwin became more mobile? I got bored with the pattern? Who knows, but I love them now.
Second-a test knit pair by my friend Gwen. She dyed the yarn and I think it was meant to be a different color but turned out pastel blue, pink, and white. I still have a skein and a half and might make something for the new baby with it. Not sure yet. I liked the socks, although I laid them down long enough that I think I worked the second heel differently. I had lost my notes. These are shorter socks, more like 3-4" cuff.
I'm now working on another pair of socks with some yarn I've had in my stash for a few years. Sense a theme? I'm part of a challenge on Ravelry to work on some of the beautiful stash yarn (nothing newer than 6 months old) and knit it up as well as clean out old works-in-progress that have been languishing. I still have to knit some slippers for CA Mom (I didn't forget!) but they will only take a few hours and I need to felt them which I can't do until I go to my mom's house, probably in a few weeks. I'm also doing a sweater, just a cardigan that buttons at the top and is short sleeved, using some bulky yarn. I figure it can fit now with the belly sticking out and then after the baby comes also.
That's about it, just a quick update. We are trying to stay warm. Maegwin has been enjoying sledding down the little hill we have next to our house. I will try to put up some video we took later this week. Til then, here's a pic of when we gave her some flour to "bake with". Ignore the Duplo mess in the background-we've given up trying to keep them put away but for those who gave some to her for Christmas, she LOVES them and plays with them everyday.
