We're back!!!

For some reason, Blogger didn't like me the last time I tried to post. LOL!

So, I'm back! Knitting slowly but surely, and spending lots of time with this little guy:

How'd we do? *wink*

I made the pants he's wearing -- from "Fitzgerald" Galenas merino from IBK. The cute little monster is from Nature Baby Knits.

And I have a couple new obsessions!!! SOCKS!!! (go figure, right? We all knew it was just a matter of time). And LACE (i.e. shawls!)!!! So, with those obsessions, I've got some great new favorite places.

For socks - this store is amazing. SOOO much stuff -- I could seriously spend a fortune in here: The Loopy Ewe. Seriously, check them out (and tell them I sent you!). I've also joined the Mystery Sock club here at Goddess Knits. Lots of fun for just a small fee! Love it.

Goddess Knits also hosts a Mystery Shawl. I'm working on one right now with classic merino lace from Knitting Notions (she's having a sale on select yarns through Easter). Its the cornflower blue color, and I LOVE it!!! Will post pictures when I get further along. Its my first time with laceweight, but its going pretty well -- other than me not paying attention to details for a few rows, and doing the wrong decrease in a few spots. I didn't bother to go back and fix it. Honestly, with three kids (one of whom is 3 months old and doesn't like to be put down), I can live with a couple wrong slanted decreases.

I have plans to make the Birds Nest shawl from Folk Shawls. I ordered some Misti Alpaca Lace from Paradise Fibers for it, and I can't wait! The color I want is backordered, but I know it'll be worth the wait.

Thats it for now! More pictures next time, I promise!
