Itty Bitty Socks

Awww... look how cute these tiny socks turned out! I've had one sock done for months and decided to finally finish the other this week. These will go in the "baby items for my prego friends" stash.
Get this, I ALMOST ran out of yarn. EEEK! Seriously! I only has a mere 32" left. Whew... that would have so sucked if I would have ran out because I bought this yarn at a yarn store down town years ago. I don't even know if they carry the brand anymore. Over the years, I've knitted 2 baby hats (including this one from February) and these socks. I probably would have found it online somewhere, but what a pain that would have been. Anyway, back to the miters for a sec. My dear pseudo-English best friend is finding out the sex of her baby next week. Hurray! So I'll be able to start on something cheeky for her.

Oooo we're going to the canyons today to a picnic with a friend. I'll try to snap some photos and post them. Our Utah canyons are so beautiful and today is a perfect day for camera-ing!

Loving my camera

Here are a few picts of the miters I've finished. 5 down and about 7 million to go. No, seriously I think I have about 60 or so for the blanket I want to make. The Tahki Cotton Classic yarn is the yarn I'm so loving right now. The colors give me the "feel-goods." As you can see, I'm really enjoying my new (well sort of new) camera--especially the macro option. Enjoy!

Just for fun

This was a fun little quiz...

What Kind of Knitter Are You?

You appear to be a Knitting Adventurer. You are through those knitting growing pains and feeling more adventurous. You can follow a standard pattern if it's not too complicated and know where to go to get help. Maybe you've started to experiment with different fibers and you might be eyeing a book with a cool technique you've never tried. Perhaps you prefer to stick to other people's patterns but you are trying to challenge yourself more. Regardless of your preference, you are continually trying to grow as a knitter, and as well you should since your non-knitting friends are probably dropping some serious hints, these days.
Take this quiz!
