Amazed?

It never ceases to amaze me how fast I can actually knit. Well not super fast as some, but fast enough. That is when i actually get off he computer and knit. lol I was kinda getting sick of knitting socks.... GASP!!! I know I just said that. I have to knit my sockpal socks but first I thought I would take a break so I started the Child's Placket Neck Pullover from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. If you click the link you'll find there is a link to a page where there are corrections for the patterns in the book. For this pattern there's actually a PDF file here's the link to that. But it's also on that last link on the right side. Anyways so I'm about 4 1/2 inches up. I'm loving this pattern so far! I'm already planning a sweater for the booty when I'm done. I'm using that cotton I got on the trip to my LYS it's for a friend who's having a baby. Speaking of baby mine is teething again. I think at least. She's been chewing her fingers for days and she just went and grabbed her washcloth and is chewing on it.. Survey says... TEETHING.. whoo hoo I win. So anyways I have decided to to use Fiber Trend's leaf lace socks for my sock pal if you've never been there before look around. great stuff there. in a greenish color, that's an obvious choice. I hope that she likes the color. I am debating now whether to knit them toe up. My preferred way or top down... Not sure yet. Anyways that's my update for now.... I'll be back.

The pullover looks great so far. I am sure your sock pal will love the sock no matter what colour they are.

You are super fast!! But I'm getting faster at the small stuff. I can finish a small dishcloth in a couple of days. WTG! I love it!
