OK.... Maybe one more little Christmas project















And I mean little! I found a cute infant sock pattern online yesterday and I thought it might be fun to put these little socks inside the ones I made for my daughter. It will be cute little surprise and I certainly had enough yarn left over. These are knit on size 1 dpn's. I've never used size 1's before.... wow.. skinny!

















Here is the new Opal "petticoat" yarn I got over the the weekend. I was asked if I wanted to be on the waiting list for this since it is in such demand. I said......sure, why not. While it is beautiful, the pastel thing really isn't me. It's going to be something awesome for the baby though... I just don't know what yet. Any suggestions???

OOoohhhhh love the new opal! I am making a pair of mittens right now out of opal. It is the first time working with opal, and I love it.

It looks like there are baby sweaters that only take one ball of Opal...

Your socks are so cute! Hang in there - the right wearer will come along!
I bet you could squeeze a little sweater or vest out of one ball of Opal. I've never used that colorwat, but I love their yarn.
