Wee Tiny Things & Sock Yarn that Makes Me Thirsty

I joined Emily's Wee Tiny Sock Swap after having a great time knitting for the Dish Rag Tag also hosted by Miss Yarn Miracle herself. I got the name of the person I was making the sock for on Friday night and in about an hour last night knit up this little sock. I love it. I made it out of The Plucky Knitter Merino Fingering in colorway Manor. Love.

I've also been knitting on my Mother-In-Law's socks. I can post these here because I know she doesn't read my blog. She's been hinting for a while about wanting a pair of handknit socks so I decided to knit her some for Mother's Day. It's pretty easy knitting these because we wear the same size shoe. She has a bit of a skinnier foot than I do so I just did the foot on 64 sts instead of my usual 68. They are turning out so cute. I'm using sKNITches Mint Mocha Latte dyed for me in a special order by Sam. I'm hoping to cast on for the second one tonight during the Mister's ice hockey playoff game. :)

Have a happy Sunday! The Mister and I have date night tonight. My MIL is taking the 'Nut overnight so we can go out to dinner and go to my man's hockey's the first one I've been able to get to in 2 seasons so I'm really excited!

How nice t have a date night! And to work on socks for your MIL while she watches your child, that's karma. The socks are beautiful - big and little:)

That tiny little sock is amazing. Maybe I should do that for the March sock. I'm still working on the second stockinette sock from the Wollmeise. It will be my April sock for sure.

Congrats on the date night. My parents took the kids last night. It was amazing. Enjoy your time and enjoy the game.
