Happy Days are Here Again
Ask and I'll deliver. Well, no one actually asked but I do deliver. My most recent FO - Saartje's Booties for a co-worker's brand spankin' new baby girl. I cast on for these last night while watching the first half of Solaris and finished them up this morning while watching The Black Rose. They're knit in Koigu KPPPM leftover from my endpaper mitts and done two at a time on one long circular. Babies have ridiculously small feet and these are so adorable and easy to knit, they look like candy to me. Hopefully the new mom will love them too. I've got a few more projects in line to share but these take the cake for now.
Even better (!) than finishing up a super-fast and satisfying project is the fact that I'm on vacation for this next week. Think...a whole dang week without work. My mom and sis are, as I'm typing, heading up from Northern California to pick me up on our way to Eastern Washington to inter Grandma's ashes. Not so much a downer as one might think since I'll be able to be there to say good-bye and spend some time with close family. I'm excited to show mom around my city and can only hope for some of the sun we've been getting in the past couple weeks. Oh, and I've already scoped out a couple of LYS to hit while over the mountains. I'm looking forward to car knitting and being a passenger for once. Ahhh...good times, knitting, family vacation, and most likely delicious food.
