half a pair and an Easter tote

I finished the first broadripple over the weekend. I think I kitchenered the toe Friday night. What a fun little sock. I cast on for number toe yesterday.

It was a very busy weekend. We had dinner at the in-laws Friday. Saturday Billy and I went to two playgrounds, I got a haircut, we did some yard work, and Hubby made dinner. Yesterday, we went to church, I sewed a tote watching the Devils game (and did some Molly grooming at the intermissions), then we had dinner at the in-laws. I'm pooped.

I've been stashing a bit of fabric. I'm a sucker for the remnants pile at Joann's and usually grab something everytime I'm there. These happy stripes were from my last trip. I just loved all the printed grosgrain ribbons they had, too. I thought the daisies and stripes were just fun together.

I love those Broadripples -- once I have knitted my way out from under some of my stash I've got to get some more Fixation and knit another pair!

That sock came out great!! I have a few balls of fixation in the stash and I've made them before for a friend........could be time to make a pair for myself! Love the tote, too!!

Happy Easter Annette! I'm catching up on my blog reading and still say that you are one of the fastest (and bestest) knitters I follow! I love your white sock... I may have missed what pattern it was... will have to see if I can find it in one of your previous archived posts...
