Sock and baby knitting

I am on another sock knitting kick and found out a friend of a friend is pregnant which means MORE baby knitting. I love knitting for babies!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Here is a list of what I am sticking in Marlena's box: A few baby blankets (I can get them done quick), some bibs, and a few sweaters, and if I have the time (she's not due til September, so I should be fine) some baby booties. Just need to get sport weight yarn for all of this now. I am so happy for Marlena.

Ooh, more Christmas gifts coming, how could I get so lucky???

My parents went to MN yesterday for the weekend so my husband and I are dog/cat/house sitting until tomorrow. I called them a little while ago to make sure they made it safe, so my daughter called me back asking what I wanted, when she exclaimed "we got you some sock yarn", oh I am extremely excited to see this new yarn. I was also told they tried to find a swift but couldn't. I did ask my mom to find me some size 1 and size 2 needles. I will try to post pictures when I get my new yarn tommorow.

I am thinking of getting some other sock yarn after tommorow as well. It's a toss up between some more Claudia Hand Painted or some Shibui Knits sock yarn. I am at ZERO miles for the 2010 Yarnathon so need to change that :)

Happy New Year

I am enjoying a great quiet weekend house sitting for my parents in Minnesota. We had a great party at our house last night with my parents and daughter, and GREAT food. I stuffed myself, and I think so did the rest of my family.

I haven't cashed my Christmas check from my mother in law yet, but I think I'm going to get some blue moon fiber arts yarn or some new needles for some yarn I have that requires size 2 needles, which I don't have.
