Rowan and I are having a fabulous weekend in Lake Tahoe with Little Guy and his mom and dad (aka my SIL and brother). We aunties got to do some babysitting this afternoon and took Little Guy for a walk in the woods. The weather is perfectly crisp, fall weather here.
Seriously, this little one just makes me smile. He is so cute and such a sweetie and loves to play with his aunties! Love him to bits!!
I also finished Rowan's Spindle Socks this morning. You can't tell from these pictures, but she is pretty happy too!
Rowan bought this orange, 100% cashmere yarn ($15 a skein, great price) at School Products in New York. The yarn softens a lot once soaked/washed (we tried the first sock when I finished knitting it). However, it feels a bit like cotton knitting it, so it was a bit hard on the hands. The socks required about 2 1/2 skeins. Loved this pattern and would definately knit it again.
That concludes my Socktoberfest knitting! Two and a half pairs, three if I had had a few days extra (heck, whose counting!). Not bad considering last year I cast on two socks and didn't finish them for months!
Up next, holiday knitting. Hopefully not so much as in years past. I'm really trying to focus on a few things for my family and close friends and I also have some birthday gifts and baby gifts to work on. And I'm hoping to get to some of my UFO's or WIP's because I don't want to have too many as we start the new year. I started one gift already. A pair of socks. Boondock Saint (smartass brother) says tonight, "Isn't Socktoberfest over though?" (note: we don't sit around discussing the blog until he says stuff like this. I think he's just trying to show me that I have a dedicated reader!).
Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
