Today I had a little opportunity to re-knit on size 2 needles and they are so much nicer. I am using the size 1 to do the sole of the sock. The only thing that makes me sad is that I didn't get to use my new lace addis on the cuff, I guess I will just have to get some of those, too! Here is my little imp holding the sock for me. He was tired but managed half a smile.

I also have a Springtime in Paris sock started with this yarn but the pattern repeat is 6 stitches and it's either too small or too big. I may try the same solution with that sock if it works.
Ok...back to knitting!

I wanted to share the very fun little surprise I got from a friend the other day. Day brightener!
The card talks when you open it! My little son had a blast with it when he first opened it...he slammed it shut, then very cautiously opened it and closed it.
These little guys bring lots of smiles!

Here's a close-up of the sleeve...the day before the baby shower, she took out the seams of both sleeves and did them again because she wanted it perfect.
And here is the picot hem.
What I loved about this whole project is that she did it all herself. She looked up what she didn't know on her own and every time I saw the progress for the day, I was just astounded at what she'd taught herself. What a way to learn, eh?
Today she just finished a sweater she made out of Manos del Uruguay yarn. She knit 3 sweaters before she had something she liked. I am just amazed at her diligence and attention to detail. I'll get a picture of the sweater when she gets the buttons on it!
I've been knitting again and enjoying it. I don't have any pictures to show...but will soon. I also have to share a picture of a very fun little surprise I got today! I remembered to bring my camera home, but will take some pictures in the daylight.
