they may be catching on

Posted on: July 2, 2007

The latest knitting news . . .

Now, onto my news. I have finished a pair of socks! These, you may remember, were intended to travel interstate last week. Well, they didn’t make it. Instead they will be a WELCOME HOME! present tomorrow.

I have made most of the leg of a sock for the Spunk, who said yesterday “I have thrown out three pairs of socks in two days. You need to knit me more.” Dutiful wife that I am, this is what I did yesterday.


I also cast on for Cindy’s socks. I must think of a clever name for them.

We had a visit from the Pregnant Friend and her Expectant Husband yesterday. Guess what? Today there are three of them!! Edited to add – not three babies! The baby was born 2 July!) Can you believe the miracle of procreation. I barely can. I just spoke to her and can not rid myself of the lump in my throat! I am so proud. I can’t wait to see them all. Unfortunately I have not finished any knitting for the little guy. Better get a wriggle on with that!

Finally, just as one life begins, another ends. We lost Louis our little mouse on Saturday. She has gone to the big mouse wheel in the sky. Sniff.

awwww, that is so sad about the mouse! But so good for your friens! Did you mean that one baby was born or that they ar now expecting triplets?

Sorry to hear about Louis – I’m sure he had a great life with you.

A new baby arrived in our neck of the woods today too – I can hardly wait ’til it’s decent to go visit for a cuddle!
Sorry to hear about Louis 😦

Louis…poor little guy. Though I am sure he had the best life a mouse could have.

Poor little mousey 😦 But yay for new baby!

Vale little Mouse. Welcome new baby!!! Babies are popping out everywhere, aren’t they!! Ah, glad The Spunk appreciates your knitterly talents!!! All the socks look fabulous: I think a finished pair of socks is right up there on the satisfaction meter!!

Great on the sock progress. Do you let him throw out socks? Mine isn’t allowed to. I can fix most of his socks (new toes) in less than an hour.
Much better than complete new socks . since he only wears them with shoes anyway.

Oh poor little Louis!

I am yet to get Mr Brickie out of explorer socks, probably not such a bad thing, one less thing to make πŸ™‚

Thanks for the link to the knit blogging article – funny how the media keep discovering the same ‘rediscovered’ crafts every 18mnths or so!!
ps nice sox πŸ™‚
