March Socks

Technically these socks were finished on Sunday night, but I haven't gotten around to posting them til now. I started them the previous Sunday, and I lost two days knitting due to the Littlest One's flu, then mine.

Fortissima Socka in Color #9095, 2.75mm needles, 56sts, heel over 28sts, standard toe.

I also finished the ladies' large felted slippers that were requested by a non-knitting customer. These are for her mother, and she wants a red pair for herself now.

Tonight I started the back of the cabled sweater that I started for the store last fall. I really would like to get that out of the UFO pile.

I'm quite excited now because I have baby knitting in my future. (No, not me.) My BIL called tonight to tell hubby that he is going to be a daddy in November. This is their first. I'm already planning stuff, thinking of patterns I've seen on-line, plus all the baby pattern books I have. I don't know if they'll find out what they're having or not, so for now I'll plan neutral stuff. Got my fingers crossed for a girl. I have two boys and two nephews. We need a girl in the family now.

Pop on over to Heddy's and see what a great man she married.

Happy knitting!

Great job on the socks ... the slippers look fantastic too! you are a fast , fast knitter!

Thanks for the plug re: my blog (and my sweet husband!) -- he really is a sweetheart, he tends to spoil me! If I mention I like/want something -- he'll get it for me (which is great, but ... expensive, 'cause I like/want a lot of things! LOL!) He has really good taste too -- I totally trust his judgement on things like that.

The yarn was $8 a skein -- that's a really good deal (but the colours are one ofs and the skeins aren't marked re: weight or content (so I have to treat them all like 100% wool ... handwash!)

Very beautiful socks - the blues of the yarn cheered me up considerably just with looking at them! And the slippers are so awesome as all the ones you did are, they look heavenly warm and cozy!
Yay for the upcoming baby knitting - congratulations and all the very best to your BIL!
