Painfully Cute

Why are miniature things so damned cute? I've always been a total sap for them. As I knit these, I was overwhelmed by their cuteness. I have 4 pregnant friends (Geesh! Anyone ever heard of overpopulation?) Anyhoo, I'm taking the opportunity to use up all the little leftover balls of sock yarn rolling around my house. Cute, cute, cute! I can hardly stand it!

February Lady Sweater

Thought I better post a picture of this finished object.
It is nice though the bulkiness/boxiness doesn't compliment figure such as it is so much.
if I were to make this again, I would modify the pattern to use a lighter yarn.
Still it is cozy!

Birthday Bash

IMG_1885, originally uploaded by Courtney Knits.

I had a wonderful birthday weekend. My friend Danielle and I drove to Ashland to see Othello. She was my personal hero and drove the entire way allowing me to do what I wanted to do most, knit!
We stopped off in Eugene on our way down and went bird watching. We saw a rare Wood Sandpiper (not usually on this continent)!
We also went to a lovely little knit shop in Eugene and Danielle bought her first sock yarn! whoo hoo, a convert!
I spent some of my birthday money on the big, green leather bag pictured, some earrings made by a local artist in Ashland and a HOT pink leather case for my NEW business cards. This is the first time I have ever had my own cards so I thought they should travel in style.
As you can see the Bird in Hand mittens are almost done and I have started a new Monkey sock in STR 'Rare gems' with picot cuffs, inspired by Neuroknitter.
My Picovoli is also finished and blocking so more photos to come.
