Stitchin' during Sochi:-)

Happy February!!

It's been a while since my last gets really busy with work and an active 7 year-old and a seemingly endless winter.  The sun has been shining for the last couple of days and it's been getting slightly warmer...keeping my fingers crossed that the high temperature will reach 50 next weekend like The Weather Channel says it will!

We've been watching the Winter Olympics this past's the first one that my son can really appreciate--his favorite sports to watch have been snowboarding, slopestyle, skiing in all forms, and luge/skeleton.  During the Olympics, I've been knitting here and there...some baby hats, washcloths, and a baby blanket for various groups.  I've been knitting exclusively from the stash, trying to whittle it down just a bit :-)

I came across a new source for clearance yarn:  Lion Brand Clearance Page.  It's located on the Lion Brand Yarn main site--overstock and discontinued yarns are all listed there.  Some pretty good deals to be had :-)

Cleaning and trying to ward off a cold today--tonight I will try to work on my Ravellenic socks/Sockdown socks--Mona--Cookie A Pattern from KnitSockLove.   Sock progress pic below--using Dream in Color Starry from the Dream Club-Spanish Star is the name of the color--super glittery and lovely colors!
