So I've been home all week doing nothing but relaxing- why haven't I posted?
Well, the thought process goes a little like this:
Knit? Or blog? Knit? Blog?
So that's what I've been doing- mostly. Probably about half the time. Well, knitting and bouncing on my new birthing ball (or exercise ball or whatever).
I heard today that each FO should get its own post. I think I agree, but I don't feel like doing that today.
First, and most excitedly, I finished McKay's gloves! I told him to "pose." Here is his hand model pose.
Look at him unlock that door! Work it! Work it!
I also promised finished baby sock pictures with the ends weaved in:
And something I'm glad isn't following me into the New Year: Barf Scarf. I actually finished it- not because I like the yarn, mind you, but because I wanted to see it finished and out of here. It's not quite out of here though.
Oh oh! And then McKay and I went to the yarn store to use my gift card that I bought myself and then said was from McKay. There were a couple of sock yarns I wanted to try, and I've never made a pair of socks for myself, so I got those.
The first is Tofutsies.
It's very bright and fun, though you can't tell in this picture. I'm not sure if we need a new camera, better lighting in the house, or better places to take pictures in the house. Anyway, I had McKay pick out the color. His response to that was, "You don't have a favorite color!" I told him, "Then pick the one most like me." Hahaha. He was kind of cornered into that! Well, he chose the blue/green/yellow one because it's most "fun and vibrant." Yay! And it is.
I've actually started knitting with the Tofutsies. People on Ravelry said it splits some (and it does a little) and pools a lot. You can actually see here, from the manufacturer's page, that it does pool horribly, so I chose to try the Monkey Socks. I heard that the Monkey Socks pattern has magic anti-pooling abilities.
And so far, it does (I'm almost done with the heel flap):
The second sock yarn I bought was On Your Toes. McKay chose this color too, because it was the most eye catching there.
I wonder how it'll knit up...
