Sweater, Socks and Frost

I have finished Blossom!!!!!! Elisabeth was able to wear it to school today. She didn't want to wait for me to try to get the edges from rolling. It didn't seem to bother her much. It was a fairly easy knit with just a small amount of frogging. I was so excited that it fit. It was made with Sirdar yarn in pale pink. I started it December 8th and finished it January 29th.

I have started the quarterly challenge for The Loopy Ewe. It is to knit a pair of socks that are different from what you would normally pick. I am a Frank. I love wild socks. Although, I think I could switch sides over to the Martha side easily if all Martha yarns are as great as this Sweet Georgia Yarn in Coffee Bean. It is pretty close to the actual color in the picture. I am so loving this yarn. I picked a pattern out of the Sensational Knitted Socks book. I am also really enjoying this book and can see myself making lots of the patterns out of this book.

Last Thursday, it was really foggy in the afternoon and then got really cold. So the frost froze on the trees. I decided it was so pretty that I had to show a picture of our street. I love the way winter looks but I think I prefer spring and fall. I have also included another picture of Ben (I did warn you that he is cute and it might turn into a Ben Blog), this one is of him bugging his older sister Emily while she was playing on the computer.
