Babies are coming!!!

I have a couple of family members that are prego!!! How awesome is that!
This means I’ll be making a few baby items this year!!

A couple of weeks ago my cousin mentioned to me that my mom had made a baby blanket for her daughter & asked if I would mind making the same blanket for her twins. I was so touched! My eyes filled with tears. I know it’s silly. But I felt so honored! Like I am carrying on my mom’s tradition!
So of course I said yes!!! I knew exactly which blanket my mom had made too.

Last week she text me that she found out she was having a boy & a girl!! How awesome is that!! So this past weekend off I went to my LYS. I found the perfect yarn, Encore Dynamo by Plymouth Yarn.

Catching up…..

Wow, I can’t believe it has been 4 weeks since my last post!  Eeek!!  I wish I could say I have a bunch of FOs… but I don’t.  😦  Though I have been working on a couple of things.  I finished another pair of yoga socks.  I like these much better than the previous ones that I made using the stretchy yarn.

This was done using Yoga Socks #153 by Patons.  And I used Plymouth yarn Sockotta in pink/green/orange.  I loved this yarn!!  Too bad it is discontinued!!  Thankfully there was enough left over so I can squeeze out another pair of socks & I do have another skein of this but in blues & greens in my stash!!  🙂

The pattern is easy to remember, 8 row repeat.  It looks great & is nice & stretchy!  I loved the no heel aspect of it!  They knitted up pretty quickly too!  I hope the recipient loves them as much as I enjoyed knitting them!  I’m going to have to make more of these!  LOL Continue reading
