How much does the tooth fairy give in your house? Here is a couple pictures.
On the knitting front I am almost done with my Waving Lace socks. I love them. I finished the heel and one repeat on the foot. If I don't finish them today they will be done tomorrow. I will post pictures when they are done. I also ordered some more yarn. Sheri at the Loopy Ewe is having a Dream in Color KAL and is offering a discount on Dream in Color Classy. I ordered 4 skeins of Dream in Color in "Deep Sea Flower". She only had 4 left I hope that it's enough for a "Wicked" Sweater. We'll see. I will post picture of that when it comes. Until then happy knitting and I will blog again soon. Thanks for reading.

I know many of you have husbands and boyfriend that enjoy knitting as much as you do, or at least understand your love of all things knitty. But this is a totally new experience for my husband. I have only been knitting for about 2 years and my husband was gone for most of that time. While he was gone my obsession has grown dramatically. He knew that I was knitting everyday while he was gone but I don't think he understood how much of the day I have needles in my hands. Eventhough he knew that he wouldn't enjoy the Market Place he took me anyway. Now that's love. Doing something you don't want to do just to make your spouse happy. That is just one of the reasons I love my man :)Now maybe I can get him to love(or even like) it just a little bit so that we can do more things yarny.
Happy knitting and thanks for reading.

Next on the WIP list is my own design, these will be knee highs too, not because of the ugg boots but because I want to see how much I can knit with shibui yarn and not have any left over. I really love this yarn I must buy some more, it is so squishy.Then I cast on for these before I left Germany. I went to the local grocery store and bought some regia yarn and cast on some primavera socks with a little mod of a p1 k2 p1 rib for the plane ride just incase i got bored knitting plain st st. Well you can see the trend in my knitting lately and guess what I haven't picked these up since the day we left Germany.
And last but probably not least I had to cast on for some "Bird in Hand" mittens. I love that pattern. So I went to Jo-Ann Fabrics and got some Lion Brand Wool-Ease that was on sale. They didn't have very many colors to choose from but I did manage to find some Heather gray and Heather Pink. So far I love this knit. It isn't easy to knit worsted weight on size one needles but it will be all worth it when I am done. Lord knows I need something for my hands when I go out in this chilly Washington weather to walk the dogs. Another thing that makes it a little hard is the fact that I don't have a printer, so I have to push my laptop screen down flat and turn my computer so that I can read the chart. Damn I wish I had my printer.
Well that's about it, I hope that everybody is doing well. I will update the blog as regularly as possible, assuming that I have something to blog about. I guess I need to be like my sister and stick to one (or maybe two) project(s) at a time. Wish me luck!
Glad to be back....Happy Knitting! and thanks for reading.
