The Jaker socks are finished. Father and Sons socks from IK Fall 2006, size 5.5 T knit in Koigu. I used less than 1 skein. So if you have little ones with little feet and just a little yarn - go for it!

is good news. Or so they say. I have been busy with work, and the boy and not much time left over for knitting and/or blogging about it. But I will share Greta's stylin' springtime top with you. (shh, it's crocheted)
Oh, and today I was bused into Tacoma for the big company meeting. My first one at this company. I have been to lots of company meetings in my day but I have never experienced what I did today. After the lunch was done and before the speaker began we were asked to "rise for our National Anthem" and so 300+ people rose and placed their right hands over their hearts and watched a montage to the National Anthem. Blew.Me.Away.

earning my grey hairs
So the boy has started driver training. The boy needs practice - hours of logged practice. Practice even in the dark. I earned points tonight having the boy drive to the library to pick up my book. (a knitting book of course!) It was light out. I let him drive around town (very small town) and show me all his friends houses. Then we went through the curves of Ohop (the valley) and he says "I want to go to the ranch" (my bro's place) Sure, go ahead. More curves, more traffic, starting to get darker...... He logged almost 1 hour of driving - I counted 10 new grey hairs!

Made in one evening, with stash scraps and a free online pattern.
He is already on his way to IL for a birthday boy.

A pair of Simple Shoes from 50 Baby Bootees to Knit, by Zoe Mellor. Cute stuff.
These are for niece Molly. Knit totally from stash (really, how much yarn can these beauties take?) Leftover Cascade fixation in pink. Socks for Jakers are already on the needles. There are 3 of them now, and I have learned. You do NOT send 1 item at a time! All 3 wee ones must have toastie toes at the same time.
Here they are hanging out with a river rock Chloe and I picked up on our walk. I am thinking I will pick up a rock on each of our walks and by the end of the summer we will have a whole jar full....... watch, we will have one lonely pebble.
p.s. 3 day weekends rock! :0)
