Itty Bitties

Made some itty bitty baby socks. These ones are leftover Regias of some sort that I had in the stash. The other ones are Socks That Rock mediumweight, leftovers from my rpm socks. These will fit newborn baby feet. I used 2.75mm needles and 24 sts. Heel flap over 12sts, toe to 8sts. The STR have short-row-heels, the others have regular heel flaps. Started these November 24, finished the 27th.

The Oldest One had his eyes tested Thursday. Been complaining of headaches. They'd told me a few years back that once he got into the bigger grades and did more reading and such that he'd probably need them. He did, so after school he went and picked them up. We lucked out that they had his prescription in stock and made them on site. I got 2-for-1, and the second pair was ready the next day. Got the same frame ordered in a different color. Always good to have a backup pair, especially for kids, rough kids like mine. (His trip to the dentist on Wednesday for more fillings also involved the removal of another nerve. He also had x-rays and is being referred to an orthodontist cuz he has a crossbite. You can kinda see it in this picture.)

He got a cute little holder for them. (These are my glasses on it.) I want one. Wahh!

I should get my Sugar Free socks finished today. Now I need to concentrate on Christmas knitting, plus I have two orders to fill. I need to make a pair of footies for a friend for her daughter-in-law. I also have to make two Christmas stockings. The family has had their stockings for many years, and now there is a grand-daughter and a daughter's boyfriend, so they each need one. Got the yarn yesterday to make them, so I think I'll try and start those tomorrow to get it out of the way.

The weather has warmed back up, and the snow is all gone except for some piles from snow plows. Yay!

Happy knitting!

PS We have new shades of Fortissima in stock (all five, three shades we had before, two are new) and a new shade of Austerman (07). There's a new yarn from Kertzer, too, that I want to order in. It's tweedy and solids, and I'd love a sweater made with the aran fleck! It's acrylic/wool, 100g skeins for $4.99.
