You’re the best! Thanks to everyone who’s bought the Bobby’s Garden pattern- you’ve helped me out big time.
We don’t have internet yet in our apartment, so my blogging time has been cut considerably. On the upside, this means that I’ll have two new patterns to share with you within the next week or so. On the downside, it means that ravelry and the blogs I love have been a little neglected. And remembering to upload the photos I want to show you a few hours ahead of time is proving to be more difficult than I thought.
In terms of FOs:
1- The big one: I moved out of my parents’ house. I am now an adult. My childhood is one big, fat F.O. After 1 year of Catholic school, 12 years of public school, 4 years of college, and 2 years of graduate school, it was about time I shook a leg and got out of the house. So, bye bye Philadelphia, and hello, Portsmouth, NH. So far things are mah-velous. And cold. The hexagon blanket has already been used, and I’m happy to report no changes in my now smooth skin! Whoot!
2- A freshly painted bedroom, and some spanking new curtains out of not so new fabric. I rustled up some Kaffe Fassett striped fabric from the stash and made some lovely curtains for the new bedroom. Photos later.
3- A new side bar with my pattern links on it. For evidence, look to your right.
4- My first hand knit Xmas gift of the year. I actually finished these on vacation in North Carolina, so enjoy the sea-side pic:

Waving Lace Socks by Evelyn A. Clark, from Favorite Socks
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino (I freaking LOVE this stuff), in Spring Frost colorway.
Needles: size US2 dpns
I followed the directions almost exactly, except that I knit the socks toe up. I also reversed the lace pattern so that the socks would mirror one another.
Feels good to get some stuff done. Next on the list: get internet for the apartment.
