A Wee New Sock Club

This is my first shipment of the Wee Tiny sock Club -- adorable!

First the Wee Skein (which I rolled already) and the wee blocker. The pattern is "Wee Aran" and came with Kool-aid and 2 tea bags if you wanted to dye your yarn yourself -- very clever! Also some rainbow Skittles and 4 stitch markers.

Can't wait until April!

Vincent Ray Reisinger

Here is my darling nephew "Vince" born March 6th at 6:56 AM. He came into this world weighing a whopping 9 pounds 2 ounces and 21 inches long.

Checkout the hat that his Auntie made him! He's looking up at his grandma with those big brown eyes!

Stitches West

Well this yarn is not from Stitches, but the March Plucky Classics Shipment. I did cancel this subscription, but it came anyway.........colorway "Father Goose".

Also not from Stitches, but of of my favorites, Sophie's Toes. The top is "Old World Christmas" and below is "Sunflower Field".

Okay now from Stitches: Pigeon Roof Studios, Snicklefritz Yarns, Dye Dreams, and Becoming Art. I really did restrain myself this year and love all my selections!

I took 2 classes, Knitting Backwards which was great. Not more turning those darn short rows! I also took a Toe-up, 2-at-a-time, 2 circular needle, sock class and loved it. It will take me a few pairs to really get it down, but I think it will be worth it!

I wish I could show pictures form Stitches, but they don't let us take pictures inside. Lots of fun, but exhausting!
