Summer Knitting and Sock Shoes

Baby sweater yoke section completed

After hours of yarn sorting and photographing yesterday I was tireder than tired, but the kids and DH wanted to go to the pool. I thought about staying home, but it was such a nice night, I went. And I’m glad I did! The weather was GLORIOUS, and it was built-in knitting time for me.

I managed to finish the yoke of my baby sweater! Now onto the interesting part. I decided to do the sweater in stockinette stitch, all except for the front panels which will have a cable and lace pattern band on each front. I still need to divide the sections of the sweater so I can decide where to place the stitch pattern. I love cables, so this will be good for me. I haven’t had a project with a cable in it for a while. So, I’m doin’ the happy dance.

Show Yer Socks!

Just had to share these new shoes I got from Journeys. I first saw them on the day I went to see the Yarn Harlot in a shop window. But alas, they didn’t have them in my size. I tried to order them online but my size didn’t even show up as available until about a month ago, and then when I ordered, they were out of stock. So, at long last, I got them this week.

Yet another reason to be a sock knitter. Cool shoes to show off your socks. Niiiiiiice.
