Sock it to me baby!

Yes, 3 posts in 3 days. I'm makin' my mama proud. Speaking of making mama proud, Buggernut decided last night that if we can find her 'Cars' panties that she would like to try the potty. Um, yeah. Girls Cars panties. What are the chances? So yes, my little girl will be the one with the little boy's flappy thing in the front of her undies because at this point I am willing to do whatever to get her potty trained. Wish me luck. We are going to try all day today.

In knitting news, I made these beauties for Embee's little Drewski...



They were ripped out a few times so that I could rewrite the pattern. You'd think with a sock so small that someone could figure out how to write a pattern, but uh, no.




Sock specs:

Pattern: Was going to be some fancy pants pattern, but ended up about 10 rows of k1.p1 rib at the cuff, stockinette, slipped stitch heel and kitchenered toe. :)
Yarn: Sunshine Yarns in Taos (by the fabulous Dani!)
Needles: Clover Bamboo DPN's size 1 (a.k.a. toothpicks)
Notes: LOVED these. And this yarn is to DIE FOR! It's super soft, knits up beautifully and the colors were so even and lovely. I LOVE Sunshine Yarns. Go buy some!

Hopefully MB will send me some pics after the Drewski is born so I can post his little feet wearing these. :) Hint, hint. FIND YOUR CAMERA CORD!

Today calls for some yummy thunderstorms, potty training and lots of knitting in my PJs. AND a new Grey's episode. I have to miss knit night tonight because the dh has something work related going on but I'll see my grrrrls on Saturday. Can't wait!
Have a super day everyone!

What adorable socks :-)

Cars underpants are what got my son to potty train! That's cute that your daughter wants them. Who cares about the little flap in the front if it gets her going, right?
