The Last Day of May

Today marks the end of my Birthday month. Thirty is not too bad. I guess.



Here is a picture of my completed Child's First Socks.

This was a super fun pattern to knit. I am a 'Toe-up" person normally, but I plan on making more of these as Birthday presents.

BTW - please ignore the messy desk. Summer at work= messy desk. Don't ask me why.


More blocking adventures! These have been finished for a while, but I needed to find some time to block it all.

These loverly pictures are of my new table runner and placemats. I basically adapted the Branching Out pattern from Knitty.com. The yarn is a locally produced yarn called "Summer Spun" from Hopyard Spinnery. It is cotton and silk spun into a lovely, textury yarn. I usually don't like orange, but I figured it is a nice summery dining room color. It reminds me of creamsicles.

I really like you widened branching out. That scarf has been on my "to be knit" list for a while. Yours came out beautifully.

You call that a messy desk?

Hah--amateur!
