Weekend Update

Cpurl's Muggle Friend KG: "Do you think you'll ever knit anything other than socks?"
Cpurl: "Uhhhhhhhh....umm..umm....socks are portable"

What kind of answer is that? But here's proof that I sometimes knit other little things:

A baby gift for a colleague at work. 1 ball of Aurora 8 + 1 ball of Lorna's Laces Angel. The hat is the Umbilical Cord hat from Stitch N Bitch and the booties are from "50 Baby Booties to Knit"

On Sunday I met up with *LeftCoastKnitter for an antique fair downtown:

I didn't buy much but I did get this kitchsy vintage Enid Collins knock off:

And some vintage knitting needles & English bell needle gauge: And, of course, we ended up at our LYS where our socks are hanging in the window. The owner is having a sock contest and both LCK and I have entered our socks

Sorry for the crappy photo--sunlight and all. LCK's are the perfectly shaped Roza's socks with the pink bow. And mine are next to hers on the right. I hope there are some more entries....

Finally Cary would like to thank his very thoughtful Auntie K for the super fabulous gift basket of kitty treats she sent in honor of his birthday! I really tried to get a good photo but Cary was too interested in the cat treats under the cellophane to sit still.

"Hurry up will ya? There are treats in here!"

Hooray for 3-day weekends!!

OK, that bag is just gorgeous.

The baby set is way cute, though I have to admit I'm having trouble stopping the sock knitting too. Socks really are portable. : )
