More Knit Porn !

Ok all, SMILE , "Pay no attention to the person in the vest" ..ok, this isn't Oz! Here is the vest on me. Disregard the small pile of hubby's dirty laundry he shed coming in from work, and my bum self (unshowered or put together). It is not as fitted as some might like but i do still need to block it. Might do so in a warm water to size it up a touch.

The completed socks! Came out cute. I really like the color combo I used...hmmm, can i remember what dye's I used?

This has been on my knit list for awhile. Was a super easy pattern and now my hot water bottle is less ugly! Now hubby wants a sweater out of the same yarn, Cascade 220.

A few new dishcloths/washcloths. Can never have to many. Goes nicely against the ice blue walls of the bath!

Thats it for now! The owner of the day spa called to chat. She picked up some cool items for me to do a special valentines day pedicure, lots of choc laced scrubs , washes and wraps! Surgery tomorrow morning so may be quiet for a day or so. Ahhh, drugs, I'll be on!

Everything looks great. Will be sending good thoughts your way for a speedy recovery from surgery.

Not sure how I missed that you blogged modeling the sweater. Yeah don't I know about piles of home from work clothes on the floor. And I live with three men, so my pile is HUGE, lol.

I have the same hot water bottle cover! (in purple lamb's pride.. love it!)

Hope your surgery goes well!

Wow!! Look at all the FOs...the vest looks great on you, the socks are perfect, and I keep forgetting I want to make the hot water bottle cozy thing too !!

Hope you are feeling better soon!

Thank you, Turtle, for your kind comment on my blog! Yes, I think I do believe what you're suggesting...we've thought for quite awhile that Mom visits one or another of us as needed!!
All your knitting looks lovely!

All very pretty, but I especially love the anklets!

Good luck with the surgery.

Cute vest! It looks great on you! I think my hot water bottle needs a cute cozy, too.

I might be alone in this, but I have a really hard time reading your blog. The red font doesn't pop against the dark background, at least not on my little laptop screen. It might be fine for everybody else, though!
