So sweet to have little feet

Another finished object!:

These are my newest socks. Anklets made with one skein of Blue Moon Fiber Arts Sock Candy. It is 96% cotton and 4% elite in a 200 yard skein. I was really hoping to get a pair out of one skein, and I did with just a tiny little bit left over. These were made on size 2 knit picks circs magic loop 2 at a time from the toe up. I just made up the pattern as I went along. I used 56 sts around, but think for the next pair I could go down to maybe 52. This yarn was very nice to knit with and the socks are comfy. This is the first pair of my summer socks. Next up is going to be a pair made with Tofutsies. Then after that some bamboo. I am trying some different yarns to see which I like as summer socks. Before I can begin more socks though I have some secret knitting to do. 2 projects that should not take to long.

Thanks to Betsy who came over and hung out yesterday. We had a great time. We knitted, we ate, and we Wiied! Now Betsy knows how addicting Wii can be. Nothing much going on today. I have to put my foot down with the kids as they are not listening very well. Plus I received a call from the school today about my son. AArrgghh there is less than two weeks left of school. Why oh why can't he be good? Now I am off to take a sun bath. I know it is not good for the skin, but my body is achey and the sun feels soooooooo nice. Maybe I just need to buy a heat lamp who knows!

I am so jealous of your little feet! I am always afraid of running out of yarn with my huge feet.
