Not much knitting going on......

Phew! I've been busy with lots of things besides knitting. Last weekend Joe and I took an overnight trip to Niagara Falls to celebrate our 26th wedding anniversary. We went to Seneca Niagara Casino and had a blast - of course that means we came home with more money than we went with - which does not usually happen. This week we are watching the grandpup and he keeps me hopping. Maybe I'll lose a pound or two.

So this is what I have to share:

Green Ellen's Half Pint Yarn
Pattern: K4, Seed 3 on the leg, foot is plain
Needle: Addi size 1
Comments: Love the pattern, same one Jeannine and Ruth have been using. It looks nice,
but is not terribly soft, which is why I chose to make the foot plain. The yarn is wonderful.
Love the colors. I am becoming a fan of semi-solids.

I did add a reinforcement in the heel, since this is the same yarn I had trouble with before.

I am working on the Elizabeth Zimmerman Surplice baby sweater.
Reynolds Odyssey Yarn. It has been in my stash since Pam had her first
yarn tasting. Glad I can finally use it for something fun. The yarn is very
nice and the colors are great. (hard to tell from this picture).

And finally I am working on some red baby alpaca socks. The pattern is
Waterfall Rib from Charlene Schurch's book. The yarn is so soft I will keep
these for myself. I think they will need to be treated with lots of TLC so
they last.

Joe mowed the grass today and the smell coming in the house is sooooo nice.
Have a good week.
