Rockin' with my socks out!

Just a quick post to say that I finally found a pattern to knit my friend Becky's socks. The yarn and pattern look just freakin' awesome together, I'm so impressed! I've also finished a pair for my sister (the not-so secret birthday socks) in the same yarn but a different colour and both suited this pattern really well! I don't want to ruin the surprise too much for my sister so I will hold back from putting a picture of them up until after I give them to her. The pattern is one that I borrowed from Rhonda called Horcrux Socks. The yarn I'm using is Invicta Extra by Scheepjes (on 2.5mm needles) and I'm finding it really nice yarn to work with.

Still Knitting!

Wow!! It's been a while since my last post. :-) I'm still here and still knitting!!
I'm working on secret birthday socks. I have one of them completled and almost to the heel on the next. The pattern's a breeze! I think my friend Bex will be getting her socks sooner then she thinks now. I'm still working on the sweater too!!
My parents finally came for a visit about 2 weeks ago. They brought a birthday present(btw,lol my b-days in March) from my Grandma (she mailed it to my parent's place because she lives in Quebec). It was a box full of yarn, all differnt colours. I also got a really nice gift from my brother's girlfriend's Mom, it had a teapot, tea and chocolates in a really nice, BIG basket. I know a few weeks ago on Rhonda's blog, she was asking to see everyone's baskets. Now I know it's late, but I'm posting mine. I also got myself a little purse at work and guess what???? It's a basket too, I thought it was so cute and summery and perfect for socks!!
Paisley's been getting right into summer these days with sidewalk chalk and rocking out on the guitar just like her daddy. We've also been eating outside alot on my new patio set that I got for mother's day. I've been knitting there too. :-)
