Well, I have been knitting, but nothing much to show for it.

This is the first sock I have ever attempted. I must say I hate hate hate hate hate this. Not the sock part. The “I picked a boring pattern” sock. It’s just a basic sock with straight stockinette stitch. Too much stockinette stitch makes a girl crazy.

And this brown thingie is supposed to be Branching Out from Knitty. I’m doing it in this yarn. It appealed to me because it was 100% bamboo and felt like butter. Only problem is that it splits easily….. at least on me it does. I have frogged it too many times to count, and this yarn cannot really withstand being unraveled several times. I just wanted to learn lace. I was ready to forget this project, but finally I read some things online that made me feel better. I read that many people said it didn’t look good at all until it was blocked. That gives me hope. Plus, I finally feel like I’m starting to get the hang of it. Just ignore my very pink waste yarn. 🙂

And this is a picture of my 5 year old baby – Sam. Not the best picture in the world, but you can still see his total cuteness. I bottle fed Sam. He’s such a big boy now.
