I'm hoping Sock Madness will fall on next weekend. I return to my fuller than full time job tomorrow and will need to be there overtime this week (New Books! *Squeal*). I need the following weekend off for birthday celebrations (I turn 26 on the 30th of March). I'm not going to get super competitive this round, I have too much to do. Good luck to everyone participating!

2 Skeins of Lorna's Laces Sock Yarn (from the Loopy Ewe): $19.50
Bottle of Advil: $6.00
Twelve Pack of Diet Dr. Pepper: $4.00
Knowing that you could knit a pair of socks in 24 hours: priceless
I'll have a more detailed Sock Madness Post later. Right now I'm still recovering

This is a baby soaker from here. Momma and Andrew love them and the newborn size fits him very well. He is also getting some baby kimonos from The Mason-Dixon Knitting book. I made those out of Plymouth Encore and will show pictures soon. In the meantime, I'll be knitting lots more soakers and baby stuff before sock madness begins (Sock Madness side note: I've changed my sport weight yarn to some from Hello Yarn. I felt that it might be more of a "true" sport). I'm off to knit!
