They’re done! They’re done!

I have knitting content! Remember the Monkeys? Yes, these dead sods:

They’re finally a pair of socks! Can I confess they’re my first knits???? (knit for me, not my first project ever!) :/ Presenting: my new socks-

(more info on le blog)

Also, I wanted to share with you Inspector #5. She takes her job quite seriously. Every skein must meet her approval, or into mama’s stash it goes! (unless she actually really really loves it, and then again… into mama’s stash it goes! πŸ˜‰ ) She meticulously goes over each step in the dye process to make sure all is well…. as seen here, inspecting the first ever Georgia skeins. Indeed she approves. Mama has a skein now to prove it. πŸ˜‰

Now that Feb.’s Socktopia socks are finally out of the way… March is in full swing! I present to you, “Morocco”… Soloman’s socks to be:

I cast on last night, not too bad for a busy mama, eh? I am doing a simple 3×1 rib for him. Oh and hey, the yarn matches his NEW red cast! I failed to mention the boy broke his arm again!? Oh well, yes, he did manage to break his arm. again. At least he’ll be sporting flashy socks with his flashy cast soon. πŸ˜€

This yarn is Cherry Tree Hill in “fall foliage”. Lovely yarn, I have quite a selection of CTH yarns… though this is my first time to actually knit with it. So far so good! I am using #1 4 DPNs for these puppies. Hmm… not much else to report.

    I think some boys are just determined to have multiple arm breaks! My brother broke one arm (in a very complicated way – spiral fracture!) and then broke his OTHER arm the very same way a few years later. You could literally hold the x-rays up, and aside from one arm being a bit bigger (due to the age difference) they looked nearly identical. Everyone was surprised, and worried that perhaps he had something wrong with his bones, but nope – just a one in a million chance of having the exact same injury!

    Your inspector is too adorable – mine tries to steal all the yarn for herself. And then she puts it in the dog crate… but she puts *everything* else in there too, so that’s not saying much πŸ˜‰

    Your yarn inspector is so cute. My 2-year-old is my yarn destroyer, unfortunately πŸ™‚ How do you manage to get done all the dyeing, knitting, taking care of broken kids, spinning and everything else I see you doing? I have 4 kids, two little and two big, and I can barely get any knitting done. You are my idol. I’m glad I have the Georgia in my stash too. It’s so lovely.
