Some Sock Success and a pretty new bag & a new tee

Well I've been busy. My first sock is coming along very well. I spent a good portion of the day yesterday at knit group finishing the leg and heel flap and then last night turned the heel and picked up stitches for the gusset. This has been the best knitting learning experience. I did realize that when picking up the stitches on each side of the heel flap that I need to add more so that I don't have a nasty hole on each side. I'm going to rip back and repick up the stitches adding 2 to each side and then will k2tog when going in the round so that I am back at the patterns stitch number. I've thought about just leaving them as is and consider it a learning experience but no...I want perfection. What can I say? :)

An FO for you....with very crappy photos....um, can we say MACRO!

This is the Drawstring Bag from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. I knit it up with size 6 16" Addis and Blue Sky Alpaca & Silk in Natural. This is for my mom for Mother's Day...inside sits a lavendar sky soy candle travel tin by Warm Spirit. I hope she likes it!






My sweet SIL was kind enough to replace my existing favorite ratty tee with a new one...oh, a new sweet one at that:


I must get this one too:


You can find all the Grey's goodies here!

If you haven't been watching or knitting with Grey's, you must watch tonight for a 2 season refresher show. Then join the bandwagon.

Don't you love all the random spammage that comes with having a blog? Sheesh. I am constantly getting adds from online casinos at my crochet blogs. Punks.

Anyway, yeah. I just wanted to say that I TOTALLY RIPPED OFF the bag pattern!! I thought it was so cute, so I knit two for my MIL's for mother's day. The MIL I don't like got a candle from Ross and earrings in her's, but the step-MIL who I LOVE got a necklace and earrings. Same bags, but the goodies inside say it all, you know?

Your's is much nicer, though, as I just used Peaches'n'cream for mine.

Oh my gosh, when am I going to stop reading your blog and go to bed already?!
