I am starting to deal with the whole MIL next door thing. In all fairness, we are renters and were planning on buying a house after the first of the year. So I don't see us being neighbors for more than 6 months. (Do you see me trying to be optimistic here? I have to be or I will be divorced very soon.)
I still am not comfortable with the whole thing but I have been knitting and trying to deal with it anyway. If I had lemons, I'd be swimming in a pool of lemonade. Thanks life.
Enough bitchin', On to the Knittin'!
I finished the socks for my mom. This was my first pair on circs. I am pleased with them. I still need to work on picking up stitches for the gussest, but other than that, I think I'm getting better.
I started the Dublin Bay Socks with my skein of Opal on size 2 Crystal Palace Bamboos. I really like it so far, I'm two repeats in. These socks are for me! I finally am knitting something I really want. I've been dying to get these started so I cast on almost immediately after finishing mom's socks. Isn't the green yarn pretty!
I cast on for Branching Out as well. I picked up the Elsebeth Lavold Wednesday night at our first knitting group. This is just the first pattern repeat. I think this project will take me a while. It is my first lace and I'm having a hard time keeping up with where I am in the pattern.
My wonderful One Skein Secret Pal, Emma, sent me the fabulous goodies below for the last month of the swap. I think the bag is super cute and I love the lining.
