Since I’ve discovered that I love sock knitting, I am pretty convinced that there will always be a pair (or two) on the needles. Socks (and hats and toys and baby knitting) are the perfect projects to break things up when other larger, endless projects are on the go (…my February Lady Sweater!)
It’s taken me almost two months to complete my latest FO which is insane because it’s actually quite a quick pattern once you work out the flow on the lace rows. Then again, there were other projects that had to be finished in between and so these socks had to be put on hold during that time. But enough of all this blabber, here is my latest FO!

This pattern was my first Cookie A. and will most definitely not be my last. Just like peanut butter choc chip cookies, mmm… just one won’t do!
In life news, craziness has overtaken our house what with our impending relocation and Prithvi’s final exams. Tomorrow is Math, which he loves by the way, so we’re cool. But the day after that is Arabic and that’s a whole other story. I think that my grand scheme of trying to potty train Kiki during this time has to be shelved.
I think that the most stressful thing of all is trying to figure out what we’d like to have shipped and what has to be tossed. I always thought of myself as a non-hoarder prefering to get rid of things if I don’t use them or have lost love for them. But apparently not! I have boxes packed with drawings when Prithvi could barely write and a tin of all his baby teeth and tickets from when we went to see Chicago and Kiki’s ‘coming home’ outfit (NOT handmade by the way) and so much other stuff. The drawings will stay, the outfit also stays, the tickets and most of the other stuff has been binned, the baby teeth…I’m still debating.
This stuff is just from the one box I looked at today. There are so many more and let’s not talk about the yarn…yeah, some craziness is definitely going on!!!
