After an evening of fidgeting because I couldn’t knit and due to server connection issues I couldn’t play WoW I thought I’d go crazy. However my sanity is was saved when I found my dpn hiding deep under the couch and the server connect is back to normal. Ah my inner peace has been restored.

Damn it, I lost one of my dpns and I don’t have any others the same size.

I had this pattern for tube socks and I really wanted a simple project to do after all the work on the bag. I am using yarn from my stash as I promised to do until September. I love making socks for myself because I have pretty big feet and I customize the length so they fit me. The pattern has smaller sizes for children so I think I’ll make a few pairs for the girls too.

I honestly have nothing on needles right now. Absolutely nothing. I haven’t made a pair of socks in over a year. I think I’m due.

Here’s the new closure which I think is at least prettier then the old one. It’s also a bigger opening.

I took a few pictures of the girls today that I wanted to share. Also the cats, aka the brothers, showed me how a shawl makes for a nice bed.

I can’t believe I haven’t posted for so long. I’ve been busy as usual. Busy or not I’ve been knitting lots. The potty seat bag was finished but I decided I didn’t care for the top and the way it closed and ripped it out today. It actually wasn’t difficult to pull out a double hemmed piece like I thought it might be.

I love this stitch marker – one of 4 that spell F-R-O-G that my aunt Sadie Says gave me for Christmas.

I think my favorite part of the bag is the bottom (well second to the diamond pattern I used in the main part).

I hope to finish off the top by the weekend.

I am still adjusting to the fact that a new little boy started in my daycare this week. That’s 3 little boys and my 2 girls that I care for. It works out well because I never have more then 4 children in the house at one time.

I’m exhausted more from staying up too late play WoW. Yes I’m still playing and I can’t believe how addicted an adult woman can get to these things. Although I am addicted to knitting so addiction is in the blood.
