Neil’s socks are finished. I had planned to put them in the mail this week, but the time got away from me. I started Rebecca’s purple socks Sunday afternoon and finished the first one last night. I decided not to try knitting two at once. I’m doing a pretty eyelet pattern and figured that was enough for me to concentrate on. So Rebecca, your second sock is started and I will send all the socks to you when they are done. I really like this pattern and might have to make a pair for myself for a change!
I plan to wind bobbins today for a new bobbin lace pattern. Which one I decide on will be determined by the number of empty bobbins I have. I have an itch to get back to my ‘s Gravenmoerse lace.

I finished the baby surprise jacket! The knitted piece looks like this:
And with a couple of folds, the sweater comes together like this:
So, on Saturday we went to visit my sister and Madalynn chose the buttons she liked and I sewed them on the sweater for her. It fits her perfectly and the shorter sleeves will be perfect for the next few months.
It was a very fun project. Now I’m looking forward to starting something new on my bobbin lace pillow.
