Warm Socks Soon

but we'll probably have warmer weather before that! (Crosses fingers and hopes.)
This is the yarn that I bought with a gift certificate from my secret pal and a little bit more. The top yarn is 2 skeins of Claudia's Handpainted in Jungle and the bottom is Fleece Artist in Mermaid.

I also bought 3 sets of needles: 2 more in size 1 and 1 set in size 2. Most socks I knit on size 1s so having extra needles is a good thing. I'm also knitting pairs of socks, so I have to have two sets to do that, anyway!

Today was L's b-day party. He chose to watch March of the Penguins, which was probably not the best choice. Everyone had fun anyway. I'll do a proper birthday post on Monday, the actual day. With this kid, we could celebrate the day he was born (2/19), the day he got out of NICU (2/24), and the day he was supposed to be born (April 4). Poor M only has the day he was born (8/15) and the day he was supposed to be born (9/12). The joys of preemies.

What's really exciting is that they are RED! :)
I can't wait to see & wear them.
