More Early Birthday Presents!

I went to Borders yesterday and I kind of splurged and justified it by saying it was an early birthday present to me! :) This is what I got...

knitting books

Actually the Sensational Knitted socks book I got from Knit Picks, the rest I got at Borders. I was so excited when I got home because the Simply Knitted Magazine had a Rowan insert with some great patterns, which included....

Birch - from inside the Rowan insert
Birch - Which I love even though lace knitting kicks my butt.

Mel by Kim Hargreaves
Mel by Kim Hargreaves - I just love this bag!!

There were a bunch of other cute patterns as well. I also got Knit Lit the third from knit picks (not pictured). I can't wait to get all my housework done because I plan to escape to my room and cozy up with it!

In the Sensational Knitted socks book they had a class sock where you can learn how to knit with 4 dpns, 5 dpns, or 2 circulars. Well, I have been wanting to learn for awhile how to knit socks with 2 circs., so I did the "class" this morning. Here's my sock...

I tried to make it to fit Bradley, but it was too small, maybe it will fit Jake?? I was happy I was able to finish it. I'll probably start some "real" socks soon using two circulars. Well, in other knitting news... I've been working on my Kool-Aid socks. I think they're turning out pretty cute. Here's a pic...

Well, not much else going on here... just lots of laundry. Fun, fun!!!
