My son (who is 19 months old) ate scrambled eggs willingly yesterday! Huge milestone, as he is very picky.
Ordered some Lorna's Laces and a miniature sock blocker keychain from The Loopy Ewe last week. Should be arriving today and will post pics when I can.
Have a good day!

The toddler socks from Spunky Eclectic have been frogged. I can't believe the author of the pattern would say she was going to put in two sets of instructions for the short row heel, one with wrapped stitches and one with slipped stitches. She only included the instructions for the wrapped stitches!
Since I have startitis, I cast on for my socks, using the Yarn Harlot's pattern for basic socks. I'm using my Fortissima Socka Disco Colori (I think thats what the ball band said) glitter sock yarn. I like how stiff the resulting fabric is. When I first bought this yarn, I had never knitted socks before. I had, however, contemplated the socks I was going to make in the future. I did not know that one huge ball of sock yarn makes a pair of socks, so thinking about my future pair, I bought 3 huge balls of sock yarn. I think there's like 520 yards per ball. Silly me....but at least I have enough of that yarn for 3 pairs of socks.
Went to see Fools Gold at the movies last night. It was a good movie, but it got bad reviews. I always end up liking the movies with bad reviews. What do critics know anyway?

The toddler socks from Spunky Eclectic are going well. The pattern is easy to follow, and I need easy, being as the heel of this sock is formed differently than the pair I just finished for Nate (husband). I love knitting socks so much! Its so nice to have a little project in beautiful yarn that fits on my desk and I can work on in spare moments when I'm not doing actual work.
My least favorite season is winter. I love knitting and being cozy and warm, but I am a knitter who knits year-round. Wool in July is not a problem for me. Wintertime makes me feel sleepy and grumpy. I think most creatures feel that way, even dogs. Observe Exhibit A: Chance, our dog.
