Baltic Sea Socks Done!

I finished the Baltic Sea Socks that I've been knitting off and on for the last few months. Hooray! I finished them while my nephew and niece were over helping us celebrate Jeff's birthday today.

They both helped a little with the Elizabeth Zimmerman stretchy bind-off, and showed interested in how this whole knitting thing works. My sister even said she wanted me to show her how to knit so that she could make herself scarves. Soon my plans for world knitting domination will be complete. Mwa-ha-ha!

I'm not sure what to tackle next. I've got some lovely Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in "Cedar" that my friends Sharon & Janelle gave me for my birthday. I also have some Opal zebra-stripe yarn that I want to use to make my niece some socks -- dang, I forgot to measure her feet while she was here. My inner little old lady is interested in exploring the world of tea cozies. And I have my eye on a couple of patterns for sweaters for myself. Top priority will have to be a few Christmas gifts that I've yet to finish up. I'll post about them once they've been given.

In other news, it seems that a month after setting up my Flickr account, my pictures are now actually searchable. My account was in some weird status -- apparently they thought I was trying to use my account to sell stuff. What? All seems well now.

Is there a corollary to the "if you water the lawn it will rain" law? Something along the lines of "if you knit stuff in wool it will get hot outside?" It's in the 80s today. Yuck.

  1. It is 72 in Gettysburg right now! We were just saying that it feels like Texas in December, not Pennsylvania. See you SOON!!!
