Gentleman’s Fancy Socks – First Progress Report

Time for some knitting!  A little while ago I started some socks.  As you can see, I’ve made it past the cuff, and I’m now working on the leg.

I’m using the Gentleman’s Fancy Sock pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks.  I don’t know what possessed me to start a fingering weight project.  I guess I’m just a glutton for punishment.  🙂  I am using 2.5mm needles instead of the 2.0mm needles called for in the pattern.  Anything knit on size 0 needles by me ends up baby-sized.

For this pattern I chose Paton’s Kroy FX in “Cadet Colors.”  Depending on what size they end up being, these socks will either go to Kai or me.  I hope they go to me.  Kai is a sock abuser.

A Little Luck

I’m sure some of you are wondering what happened to me.  I used to post all the time!  Unfortunately (or fortunately) I’ve been terribly sick, but I seem to finally be coming out of it.  🙂

The big news around here is that Eva is expecting a sibling next May!  Right now I am 14 weeks, 4 days pregnant.  As was the case with Eva, I wound up with horrible morning sickness that left me pretty much unable to do anything but barf and lay in the shower.  Good times!  As such, I haven’t been doing much crafting, gardening, or cooking.  I’m just starting to get back on the horse, though, and hopefully I’ll be able to share some new things with you soon!
Before I end this post, I’d like to show you something I found today:

Not one, but two (!!) four leaf clovers! Luck is coming my way!

I found these clovers while sitting in the back yard with Eva.  We have a ton of clover (weeds), so every time I’m close to the ground, I scan for four leaf ones.  I’ve never found one before today.  🙂  I hope that finding these means something good is in our future!
