Finished BabyVest and Socks Set

Just finished a baby boy's vest and sock set. My LYS ask me to knit it for the shop. It turned out cute and was fun to knit. We're having a new grandson in October so after the LYS is finished showing it I will have it for the new baby. We're excited about another grandchild, I love babies. Here is a picture of the Vest and Socks. It's made with sock yarn and size 2 needles.

Sunday Blues

Just got up and have the Sunday Blues. I'm sure everyone has had the blues and knows what I'm talking about. Yesterday was a great day with my socks get Grand Champion Ribbon at the fair. But about 2:00 we got a call from the doctor about some test our 12year old grand daughter had been waiting on. The test results were one of those that makes you worry about what might happen and that kind of thing can make me imagine the worse everytime. So I've got to talk myself out of this mood. Have a great week everyone. Ro The Knitting Grandma

Work in Progress "Lace Cuff Socks

Just wanting to share what I have on the sticks at this time. its the Lace Cuff socks from the same Interweave sock book as yesterday, I'm going to make every sock in that book if I keep this up. On these socks again I'm doing Magic loop on size 2 needles using Panda cotton, bambo mix. This yarn is so soft and light and airy. These will be light weight socks for spring, summer or early fall. The color will look nice with jeans. Don't you think? Will post a completed picture at later date.
