More FO Pics

Started another "quickie" (I hope) today at SnB. It's a felted bag for my MIL's birthday...last August. I think it will be worth the wait; hope she agrees :) Pics tomorrow.

Finally got the kids' bed socks out for a photo op:

 

They're a wool blend, and a little pilly, but they've seen some pretty heavy wear. The boys are going to get some new ones soon - they've each picked out a color of Magic Stripes that they love. I may quietly swap that out for a 100% wool (superwash of course) if I can get gauge; MS calls for a size 3 or 4 needle and I'm looking for something at least that big. I'm definitely done with size 1's for a while, especially for kids' stuff that I know will soon be outgrown.

I'm looking forward to getting all my photos together in some kind of album. Maybe Flickr? Something I can set up as a sidebar would be nice...any ideas?

I picked up this book because of some beautiful shots of knit ads from over the course of the 1900s, but also loved the title. Dh was like, hmm, honey do you think maybe this hobby is getting out of hand?

 

Yes, actually, it's way out of hand, darling :) But at least your feet will be warm. Posted by Picasa

What a hilarious book, is that a recent title? Sadly my husband can totally relate to it!;)
