This is a whole lot of Noro. That is going to become this. The Stolen Moments Wrap. I really really really want a shawl or wrap, and I figured I'd have to knit it myself if I was going to get it done. Not that I didn't check out Etsy to see if I could buy one. I did. But the really great ones are at least as expensive as the $60+ of Noro pictured above. So I find myself casting on with the biggest knitting needles I've ever worked with. And they are straights to boot! Go figure!

A new hat for Jonas, although that is Milo wearing it. Just an easy 2x2 rib that was fun to do with yarn I had on hand. I needed something easy to knit on my week off from school, while I was getting caught up on Grey's Anatomy.

Maybe it's just me, but socks laid out without sock blockers just look unbelievably long and grotesque. Trust me, these are the right size and shape.
Forgive the cell phone pics, it's all I've got right now. They don't really do the color changes in the Dream In Color Smooshy justice. The Punky Magenta really isn't a true pink, it has lovely purples in it too. I finished and blocked the 2nd sock of these yesterday..... and they are for me!!! I get to keep them!

Hmmm. Not sure what to do at this point. The yarn isn't stretchy enough to accomodate my wide foot. So this is either a gift sock. or I need to take the heel out and re-do from that point on..
