|Knitting socks at the dentist :)|

Okay, so I bought this yarn on a whim. I wanted to buy something and thought "why not, looks interesting."
Why not? It is a pain to knit with! I am sure there is a trick, but I couldn't find it. I fumbled through and made the scarf and Ava looks great in it, but she looks great in anything :)
I also made a baby bear hat for a friend's baby. It is tiny, much tinier than I wanted. Why can't I find a baby hat pattern that will fit a baby's head and not just an orange!

The awesome Socks bunny knit and fit has designed a beaded pi shawl that I test knit and LOVED. The beading was not hard at all and I was so afraid I would screw up, but didn't :)
I was binding off, minding my own business when an unleashed dog ran up and grabbed my shawl! I screamed!!! The dog let go and I rescued my shawl...
My first test knit, my first pi shawl, my first beaded knit....I am thrilled and so thankful to Sock Bunny (Kimberly) for allowing me to be a test knitter.
I used Paton's Lace in the bonfire colorway on size 6 needles (interchangeable 32 inch cable).
I thought this would be a cute gift card holder for my niece :) I want to knit more of these cuties for smiles.

I mailed my brother his socks and he called to say they fit perfectly. Yay! So perfect that my nephew wants a pair and he asked if I could knit him an identical pair for Christmas. Why didn't I take better notes?????????????
Now I need to buy more yarn...
I finished plying my BFL and it is KINKY, but beautiful and I think I have enough fingering yardage for a shawlette.
What else have I been doing, besides knitting? I have been playing with precious babies like these. Take a gander at this puppy pile. These are a few of the great dog available for loving homes at our Humane Society.
Isn't that precious????????
