I will do a weekend recap for the Spring Fling next weekend when I have some time. For now just stare at the beautiful Wollmeise I won!

Spring Knitting

I haven't blogged in quite a while. I've been knitting and enjoying the beginning of Spring.

In March I knit a pair of Monkey Socks for the TLE Spring Fling challenge. I love this pattern and made it once before for my mom so this pair is for me.

I'm currently working on a pair of Toe-Up Socks with a Difference in some Yarn Pirate that I got from the Booty Sock Club last year.

I recently finished my second baby sweater. This one was for my boss and his wife whose little girl was born at the end of December. I made the Baby Shrug from Simply Baby by Debbie Bliss. I made it in the 3-6 months size in a cotton yarn. I liked the way it turned out even if I didn't do a great job picking up the stitches for the border or the seaming.

On Thursday I am headed to St. Louis for The Loopy Ewe's Spring Fling knitting retreat. I don't remember the last time I was this excited to go somewhere. This is my first knitting retreat and I am looking forward to the classes (can you see Cookie A. and Knitspot), the shopping, and hangin out with other knitters.
