Wouldn't ya know?

I had an opportunity (the first in a long time it seems) to work on and hopefully finish my socks, but wouldn't ya know that in the second round of knitting, one of my size 1 dpn's broke. What is a girl to do? Get the spare right? Wrong! It was the spare that broke. So I called my good friend Amy at Yarntopia and she has needles for me to buy and a pattern that I was looking for. I'd like to buy all her yarn but I'm saving that for when I visit her store in June. So, since I had this knitting time, I decided to knit the baby booties. I have never knit baby booties before and ya know what? They go fast! That was my knitting "duh" moment. I will post a picture as soon as I get the ribbon to run through the eyelets in the booties. They are called ballet slippers. So so cute! I have made these booties for my cousin that had a baby a week and a half ago. So, I'll post pictures of these soon! Now I'm off to assemble a shark costume of sorts that my youngest son needs for a project he is doing tomorrow. He was an Indian 2 weeks ago and now a shark. I need a break from school people! And here I thought with me graduating XXX years ago, I'd be done with homework . . . apparently NOT!

Bummer about the needles, but at least new ones are on their way to your door. I can't wait to see the baby booties.
