Slow and Not So Steady

My parents left this afternoon after a week's visit in SF, which hopefully helps to explain my rather paltry sock progress. We were out and about each and every day, which didn't leave much time or energy for hitting the sticks (I really need some new knitting metaphors--any suggestions welcome).

I tried turning the heel this evening, and just ended up ripping it :-(

Tomorrow's another day...

Well I was finally able to complete the toecap for the socks I'm working on. Note to knit-nighters: I had to frog everything I had done last knit night since it really isn't possible to count and chat at the same time :-( Also, the yarn is a smidge splitty, so it does require occasional attention.

More detail.

The whole enchilada. Now, on to the foot!

Proud Mom

I'm proud of my fabulous little feline who loves to drape himself in marabou. It's a little flashy for my taste, but he adores it--not that there's anything wrong with that...

Finished Object

Just in the nick of time I finished the adorable butter yellow baby sweater I was working on. Baby Nolan (boy) was born today :-)

Sweater detail

Extreme closeup of the world's cutest bee buttons. They are so adorable that I just want to cry when I look at them. Really.

Now I just need to finish the matching cap!

Happy Labor Day

In the true spirit of labor day, Monkey decided to take a break from his normal jobs of eating, lounging and sleeping in order to race around the house in a spastic frenzy all day long, showing boundless enthusiasm for such sports as ankle biting, leg scrambling, and counter jumping.
