We have had nothing but rain and wind for the past few days, so I’m afraid I have no balloon pictures. The weather is meant to get better, so hopefully I’ll have pictures soon. With the rain came a leaky roof, hopefully its just a small area and we won’t have to get the whole roof done. Since the weather is bad, I’ve done some knitting. Do these count for Soctoberfest?????



They are part of a set I’ve made for another baby shower. Here’s the first one

      Hat Pattern: Bonnets & Bootees

      Sock Pattern: Just Your Basic Baby Socks

     Wool: Opal Color: Petticoat

Wool for this one was Jaeger Baby Merino 193, it was left over from a previous baby gift. The sock pattern for both of these I used the “Toe Down” version and I did 14-16 rows of rib for the cuff instead of 6 as I like to turn them down. I’ve started on a pair for myself, I had cast on earlier for these, but had to frog it so I restarted them for Soctoberfest. I’m only on the 1st 0ne.


 Hopefully I’ll have these finished soon. Have a great day.

    Wow, you’ve been so productive! Yay for bad weather, it’s perfect for knitting, isn’t it? I’m so sorry to hear about your leaking roof, hopefully it’s just a small part that can be repaired without too much hassle! And I so love the baby things you did, everything looks so very cute – these sets are totally yummy! I also love how your sock is coming along – may I ask what pattern you’re using for it?

    The socks (and hats) are adorable! I love the Christmas crackers as well and am thrilled that they are easy to find this year.
