I also finally got some sock blockers- just in time to block the Embossed Leaves socks from Favorite Socks:Those were done in pink/yellow variegated Lorna's Laces SS, and I was pretty excited how they came out. In other news, my Christmas knitting was very well-received. My mom really liked her Booga bag and scarf I made her, and R's mom said she wanted to frame her Brooke's Column of Leaves scarf, my dad really liked his blue striped socks for his size 13 EEE feet, R's dad liked his hat (I think ;) ), and R's little sister slept in the hat and scarf I made her. Right now, I just turned the heel and picked up the rest of the foot stitches on the Waving Lace socks from Favorite Socks. I'm using Smooshy in Beach fog, and although it's going really well, I think I had more fun with the Embossed Leaves pattern. We'll see! I should have those finished and a pair of Monkey's well underway, with the 15 hour drive there, and then 15 hours back- plus lots of down-time after skiing!
Our ninja bunny, Muggle, is still vacationing at R's parents house- in his teeny (well teeny compared to the bunny condo we just built him) little cage, and getting either fatter, or fluffier.....it's a little hard to tell with him. They've been really nice taking care of him for the past week, but I'll be glad when he's back home with us!
Notice his extremely large back feet- good for ninja jumps!
I'm also expecting a new order from Woolgirl in a few days- I spent the rest of my Christmas money from their New Year's sale. I asked Jen if she could wait and ship it later this week since we're going to be out of town, so she's shipping it out today I think. I love her customer service...and their yarn of course! I think that's where my presents from R are going to be coming from from now on....... ;) . So anyways, I'm off to ski, knit, and enjoy my last few days of freedom from classes- it's back to the grind in the middle of next week!
