Better Than Booties Baby Socks
Both the socks and the bear are knit in Koigu merino. Not necessarily the best choice for baby socks since it's hand wash only, but Owen's socks don't get very dirty anyway since he's not walking yet.
Last night our knitting group met at the Yarn Garden. They were supposed to have special chocolates to sample in the Sipperie as well as a sock-knitter's get-together. Well, no chocolates (although they did have killer peppermint hot cocoa that we all went nuts for), and no other sock knitters - we had the place pretty much to ourselves. I started on Conwy for my Knitting On The Road Along. I'm making it in Lorna's Lace Shepherd Sock (surprise, surprise) in the Black Purl colorway. Here is a progress pic - the colors are gorgeous, and lookee! I'm knitting it on my new Addis!
That's not a shadow on the right side - that is the yarn color. I'll be interested to see how it looks as I continue to knit it up.
Owen had his six-month checkup yesterday. He's gained two pounds and is 17 on the dot. I can't remember what his height ended up being - I'll have to get back to you on that one. He also had to have three shots, poor little buggy! Of course that meant he was crabby and feverish all night last night. He's slept quite a bit today, but very fitfully so it hasn't really been a break for me (since I've had to run upstairs to check on him every five minutes). He's doing better this afternoon, but Bill is going to take Sydney to music class and I'm keeping him home, just in case. It's too bad, because he really loves the class - he's becoming a big music fan, just like his sister!
