Twenty-Eight of Fifty-Two

March socks for SAM5, also pair 28 of 52 for the 52PP. They are knit with Regia Mini Ringel and are for the Littlest One. Started March 9, finished March 13. Knit on 2.25mm needles, 52sts, standard heel flap over 26sts, toe to 20sts.

He wanted to show what the bottoms look like!

He wants more socks, but they have to be colorful. I told him we don't have any more of this kind of yarn, and he wasn't too impressed with the colors I told him he could get. I was wearing a red sweater, and he said, "I want bright colors, like your shirt." Don't have to tell me twice, I'd rather knit with those kind of colors!

I haven't touched the sweater I started for myself in awhile. I'm working tonight and tomorrow (in a snowstorm, according to the forecast -- will spring never come?!) and will probably work on socks. I like small, easy stuff that I can drop in a heartbeat and not lose where I am.

Thanks, Heddy, for stopping in at suppertime and selling more yarn for me! Too funny -- Heddy stopped in just as a lady was there to pick up the yarn she ordered. Heddy was wearing her bamboo socks and showed them to her. The lady ended up leaving with three skeins of the bamboo sock yarn and one of the new sock/slipper books in addition to the forty skeins of Astra she ordered!

Off to do some sweeping and mopping. All so it can get messed up tomorrow in the storm, provided I even get any customers.

Happy knitting!

Hope I remember to come and get one of those sock books. Sometimes I am braindead and if it does storm Sat., I will probably forget and then I won't be in until I am home from Sweden.

Did you knit a little beige purse with a flower on the front of it? That pattern with the triangle flap on it.

There was a little girl using one of those purses for her Nintendo DS at the school the last day before March Break ... her Nan got it for her somewhere. (just remembering now to ask you about it)

Must be this one, I only ever did one with a flower. Glad to hear that it was put to good use!
