Way too cute....

...and way too small. These things are teeny tiny. No baby born is May is going to be wearing wool socks any time soon. And these will only fit a newborn. So off they go to London to baby Georgio due in February! It was a cute idea to tuck them down into my daughter's Christmas socks since they match but her baby would never wear them. No sense wasting them. Blogger won't let me drag and paste the pattern for some reason but you can google it by searching "Infant Socks" and "Judy Ellis". That should bring it up.

Also...thanks to Heather for the tip on the baby Opal sweater. I found the pattern, printed it out, and I'm excited to get started on it with the new Opal yarn. According to the pattern, if I make the smallest one, I should have enough left over for a hat and booties too. It's perfect! Perfect for baby Corey due in January. (Like I said before, there's this crazy population explosion going on in this family! We're going to have enough little second cousins running around to start a daycare center!)

I realized the other day that I am putting off starting Kepler like I put off housework. Subconsciously, I think I'm afraid of that braid. I don't know what's the matter with me. That is my favorite kind of knitting. Once I get started I know I can figure it out, and yet I just keep putting it off because it looks complicated. I'm such a chicken!
