Where did the month of February go? I have no idea, I must have pulled a Rip Van Winkle and slept right through it.

I know for certain that there has been lots of house cleaning and a little bit of knitting going on. I made a quick pair of socks for the DD in her favorite colors. Much to my satisfaction they are a perfect match. This is
Lana Grossa Meilenweit 100 Multiringel color 5121. It used well under a ball to make this pair, her feet are a size 1 childrens.

This is the second ball of most precious yarn I have used from my stash. It is the Claudia Handpainted Yarns Silk Lace (20/2 ) in Ocean Depth. It turned out very nicely. The color with the pattern looks just beautiful. It is very light weight, shiny and silky. I LOVE the Laminaria pattern from Knitty. This is a terrific pattern, well written and easy to follow and it turns out wonderfully. I give it two thumbs up.

Now, after nearly a year of silence, I can finally show you a pair of socks I made in April 2008. I did a sample knit for Cookie A.'s fantastic book, Sock Innovation. The sock is titled Eunice. The book will be avialable on April 1st. This sock is Cabled with a lacy pattern in the center of the cross. This pair was made from KPM. It was modeled here by Melissa as her feet were the closest size to the socks. Sample knitting is fun, you just can't tell anyone about i!

Now on the needles, a pair of snaily felted baby booties. Super cute but you'll have to wait to see them!
