They make 9s which are stupidly small but good for sock. I ordered some but haven't used them yet. I will text you about 12s.

ew...that doesn't sound to appetizing? Glad you didn't have to suffer through it. Think I'm making italian lemon chicken served with garlic/butter/spinach/parmesean penne. First nice meal I'll have made all week (we had pizza, mac n cheese, etc.) Just sooo tired...



Have fun on date night!
wow, that sounds fabulous!

I need shorter ones and wood, the metal are too slippery

I have two I will part with, I hate knitting w/them. I have them in 6 and 8 (maybe 5 and 7?), I'll look if that is what you need. I keep saving them thinking I will use them on sleeves or something, but I hate them. I got a hiya FSOT and I like it. A bit pointer than addi turbos, which I have come to like when you have to do a lot of sts manipulating.

They all look great! I'm due with a boy in Feb and am just starting my knitted stash! I want to do a sophisticate sweater. I just finished a hootie who romper.
I loved the pattern, but was glad I read the pattern notes! It runs super small, so I knit the 6-12 months size. It looks just about right for a larger newborn (my babies are all 8+ lbs)

[QUOTE=OrangeBananas;15799740]Love it all, Jenny!

Thanks!

There was a huge accident/mistake and 4 hours just went down the drain. OMG. I want to cry but laugh at the same time. These are going to be some REALLY great booties when they finally happen...

Frogging is just another chance at perfection. Every stitch is a learning experience.

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

It involved a cat and a three year old. I need to look up frogging, but the yarn itself got pretty ruined. UGH How dare I use the bathroom!

ETA: Frogging is pretty cool!

I haven't crocheted in forever though, so it may make me a bit crazy.
Get some good rest, I know it's so much easier said than done however. Hang in there!

It happens! Practice definitely makes perfect when it comes to knit/crochet.

I played on Rav a bit and am so pleasantly surprised at today's sales. Hubs has been laid off since August and I am trying to gather some giftmas funds. He does have an interview tomorrow morning, so my fingers are crossed. Have to admit that I love having him home, he worked 70+ hours a week the ten years we've been together.

I am off...Glee in 20!
