Sugar & Spice!

Wee Tiny Sugar & Spice Sock!

Wee Tiny Sock Club - February 2010!

This is a toe-up construction that starts with a provisional cast-on for a short row toe. Gusset increases and flap heel. The leg is worked in ribbing and the ruffles are knit inside the sock...when its complete the ruffles show on the interesting to see how this works! Will knit this up as soon as I'm finished with my Ravelympic project!

Kit includes: Beyond Basics Knits Prima Superwash Sock; stitch markers; heart pencil; Valentine card; heart notepad; conversation heart candies; pattern.

My last mini sock (the red oriental one) won the photo contest on the Ravelry boards and I received the adorable oriental coin purse. It had a Ghirardelli candy in it (which Jimmy ate right away), stickers and some change! Very pretty! Think it will be perfect to hold all my stitch markers!:)

We are official YMCA members now...signed up yesterday while Jimmy was swimming. I'm taking time off to ice my knee and we'll see how it feels next week....then I will start off slowly!:) As I was filling out paperwork looked up and saw Nicole (FreckleFaceFibers) and Juanita (jdheyerman) on the treadmills, which was awesome! Now I just need to run into Jeanine (msdiva)!! Everyone there is so nice and its soooo clean! Loving it!

Congrats on winning! If this weather doesn't cooperate soon, I'm going to have to go visit the eliptical trainer at the firehouse, but that's not fair to Sissy...

Look at those wee little skeins!! How cute!! That one's going to be so adorable! Congrats on the win! You're doing all kinds of different construction with these! I don't think I could do that! ;O)

I drove to my friends house to see her weaving looms on Wed and my right leg is still hurting. I need a car with hand controls I guess! :( Or a nice cute driver! ;)
