This is the newest member of my sheep collection! The Baby Girl gave me the YARN and the pattern for Christmas and I wanted to knit her right up, so, here she is. She looks bug eyed but if I put black buttons on her she'd have looked eyeless. I love it. Real wool yarn too! There is no name or anything on the pattern so I can't share all that but I love it. The Baby Girl gets an A+ for Christmas gift giving to her Mom this year!
Those are the socks that I started when we went to the Pugfest. I bought the yarn at one of my favorite yarn shops in Lawrencville. It's Regia Silk, color #0189 and so nice on the feet! The pattern is just simple knitting - st st - from Kate Gilbert's site. I have them on as I type and my feet are warm and very happy!
The Baby Girl only has 2 more days to spend with us before she heads back to college (2nd semester already!) so she and I are going to spend the day together shopping (back to school stuff AGAIN!), my latte at Starbucks and whatever else we can come up with.
For my own info a year from now when I look back at my blog, I've lost another 3 pounds so I'm now down 13 pounds. YAHOO! It'll be confirmed (I hope) on Tuesday when I go back to my Cardiologist. With less than 3 weeks to go till my big vacation with my Sweetie, another 6 pounds could be possible.
Happy Knitting! More pictures tomorrow of Christmas gifts to myself!
