YN Cookie Box shorties

I'm working on my first pair of shorts for this year, and I forgot how quickly they worked up!
These are Yarnoodles "Cookie Box" colorway on Mountain Meadow. It's the first time I have knit with Mountain Meadow and I love the squishiness of it.

Here's a quick WIP picture, they should be done by this afternoon!

M is for Mask

Nathan has been taking a huge interest in letters lately, so I figured I would encourage it with something fun! From now on we are going to pick a letter each day and plan something fun to do with it.

Today's letter is M
We started with since Nathan loves that site, and from there I got the idea that we could make our own masks. The boys loved it!

I love that when Nathan says cheese his mask moves up lol

Here is a better mask shot
sick little Noah didn't want to wear his mask
And if you are going to wear a mask, then a cape is needed as well!
Even if the masks were not a hit with Noah, he still likes his cape
Superhero brothers!

Nathan's Easter Vest

Instead of taking a WIP picture, I just finished the vest instead! Remember that beautiful custom yarn from Blue Grass Baby a few posts back? Well it has now become this!

I really love the way it worked up, and I can't wait to get started on Noah's now! Thanks Dev!

It figures, the weather warms up and we get colds! I would have love to spent today outside playing at the park, but instead we all took some rather long naps. Hopefully I'll have some fun spring weather pictures to put up in the next week when our runny noses go away!

In the meantime I have been thinking of spring and working on Nathan's Easter vest. I'll be back tomorrow with some pictures after I finish the back and it doesn't look so bunched up on one circ.

Making Mischief

A friend of mine, Dev, from Blue Grass Baby, was kind enough to dye me some custom yarn for the boys Easter vests this year. I told her I wanted Monet waterlilies colors, and this is what she came up with
It's absolutely perfect! I can't wait to start knitting the vests as my new Sunday knitting project! (only 10 more rows of the Shalom and I can get started)

Thank you so much Dev!

WSK Iris socks

First, I need to say that hands down Western Sky Knits colorways have become my new favorite to knit on sock yarn. They just always work up perfectly!

Here are some basic ribbed socks on WSK Iris for Heather. One sock down, almost to the gusset on the second.
