Knit n Blather

Haven't been online much but have been knitting, working, relaxing and exploring.  Yep, that's my life. 

My daughter sent me a super cute knitting robot sketch that she had commissioned.  A man in Austin was creating the sketches as a fund raiser to travel to a bike ride.  Hope he keeps up the good work.  Here is mine:

Isn't he cute?  Knitting his tail!  Wish I had an extra set of arms/legs to help in my knitting.  Here is the link to more of his bots.  Robots

Now for what I am knitting: socks from S.R. Kertzer On Your Toes Bamboo.  The pattern is Double Eyelet Rib by Wendy D Johnson.  I am loving this yarn even if it is a little splitty.  It is so soft and feels so good on my hands that I am really wanting to feel it on my feet.  The pattern is appropriately summery and works well with this yarn.  Got one sock knit to above ankle, I'm knitting on the foot of the other.  When I get to the same length, then I'll finish them together so I will use up all the yarn.

Also knitting on the Daily Sweater from Mason Dixon's "Knitting Outside the Lines" but not showing any photos yet.  And.....knit up a couple of bigger needle projects like a Lion Brand homespun scarf and one of my bottle cozies.
