I bought madtosh sock yarn. I am seriously thinking lacy thigh highs with it. Rb voted for buttless chaps and I told him he would need to knit his own.

So proud of her.

My forewarning, it felts VERY easily, even just from wear. Several girls from my knit group found that out the hard way, so I will never use Tosh Sock for actual socks

I feel that way too. Our 3rd floor is one huge open room with 2 big closets. The whole 3rd floor is full of toys, baby gadgets, and hand me down clothes! I cannot wait to stay getting rid of it! This is our last baby, and destashing baby stuff is the only happy part about it

I go through toys pretty much every December getting ready for the onslaught of Christmas/birthdays. 3 (soon to be 4) kids birthdays in December thru February. I took 16 big black trash bags of toys/clothes to good will this summer. Can hardly tell. I ferrule I'm drowning in stuff!

Well heel. I might just do a shrug then cause nobody should be felting my thighs!

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

back...and it only took a flippin hour! Darn people wanting fabric. One reason I HATE JAs!

got all the fabric needed and Steven is excited. However I couldn't find a bright yellow so it's more butter yellow

oh and Em pounded her head on the ground and I could hear everyone gasp and all eyes on me!

Re: KAL Oct 7-13 *Knit the funk away!*

So, a couple years ago I bought a big stash of someone else made woolies. The price was right and it was when I first got into cloth so I could go in fast while I was knitting my own stash. This is my deepest darkest secret.

So. Baby G knows I did not make them. I have NO idea how since I was not even PREGNANT with him yet when I bought them but he refuses to wear non mommy made. :/ I have had these around for 3 kids since none of them wore them for long and now that he fits them, he is pretty much refusing to wear them.
