Tiny Socks and Other Stuff
A close friend of Sarah's is having a baby soon, so of course we needed some baby socks. Knitting for babies is such an instant gratification experience. This is a modified basic sock pattern knit in Artyarns Supermerino in colorway 105. The socks themselves are turning out really heavy, so hopefully this May baby will be able to wear them. And sock number two is turning out a touch smaller, which is kind of a bummer. Hopefully they'll end up being close enough. I always have a few false starts and ripping back with the first sock, which results in it being looser and generally more stretched out. Then I sail through sock two. Sock two is a lot more fun to knit, but it would be nice if my socks would match ever.
Last night was our first official Pizza Night, wherein we made pizza that were not at one time frozen. It's going to be a weekly thing, though it'll normally be on Friday. We used store-bought dough from Trader Joe's and it was quite yummy. I do plan to make dough from scratch eventually. In the meantime, though, TJ's is perfectly good. It gave us an opportunity to use our baking stone--a gift from Sarah's mom that we rarely use. I did suffer a kitchen injury when I sliced my finger on my Cuisinart blade while looking for something in the knife drawer. Clearly, that was a very bad location for the blade. It has now been relocated. Luckily, the cut wasn't too bad, just kind of gory and upsetting.
We also brought up an old dresser from the basement for E's room. He's getting so many clothes they weren't fitting in the desk we've been using as a dresser. Plus, as he gets bigger, his clothes get bigger, so the same amount of clothes take up more space. It's nice to have everything where we can find it now instead of crammed in here and there and wherever it would fit. E celebrated by skipping his afternoon nap. We were not amused.
