February 18 of 28

Today I managed to finish Jamie's sock number 1. I have my sock number 1 to finish, and then I can start both sock number 2.... for the full pair. Here is my sock number 1 finished:

And here is Jamie modelling it on his foot - he loves that it fits snug and perfectly:

You see, the last pair of socks that I made Jamie, were a little loose on him. He requested a tighter pair (on the leg part) when I knit him the next pair (which are these). The pattern on these socks is the Seed Stitch Rib as follows:

Seed Stitch Rib
(Worked over a multiple of 4 sts):
Round 1: K all sts.
Round 2: [K3, p1] to end.
Repeat these 2 rounds for Seed Stitch Rib.

I got it from the Thuja socks on Knitty.com

Sean told me that he does not want to be blogged today. He said tomorrow is okay, but to "stop being a paparazzi mommy." He told me that I have over 750+ pictures of him in my Flickr account, and to chill for a bit! Hee hee.

Something annoying is half our bibs for Sean are velcro/snap closure and half of them are strings you tie behind the head. We've come to HATE the string ones that tie around his head, and only use them if I haven't had a chance to do laundry yet, and we've run out of the velcro/snap ones. Of course the string tie ones will be easier to use once Sean's sitting up on his own and we can easily tie it behind his neck... but for now... velcro/snap is the way to go. And we don't feed Sean unless he's wearing a bib, because he always manages to have formula dripping down his face, without failure, and also sometimes he spits up a bit... Bibs are great! It'll definitely be interesting once he starts eating solids!

Alright, I'm hitting the hay. Jamie's working all week because his co-worker is on business, so I'm doing ALL the night wake-ups (always 2 wakings each night, once around 2:30 ish and the 2nd somewhere around 5:30 am) and I'm on duty until Thursday night! Fun fun! I'm going to be a zombie this week!

I owe a ton of emails still - they will be replied to shortly. If you're waiting to hear back from me - I promise I will get to it!

That sock is great. It looks really nice. Question: Is it hard to knit a sock? and What size needle to you use?

The socks look great! I love that yarn!~
I hate those tying bibs, too. Velcro is much easier! Seems safer, too.
