facist robo-alien love

as mentioned, my fetchings have disappeared into the land of lost handknit items. :( and it's cold! my poor hands.

i found this pattern the day it came out. while i loved my fetchings, let's face it, in MN, you need all the coverage and warmth that you can get and my fingers did get cold in those. the extra length in these is much appreciated! i also have a new favorite yarn in the entire world. rowan cashsoft aran. YUM!!! started these friday night, finished last night, less than 48 hours. that's my kind of project.

ron got me some beautiful socks that rock lightweight for my birthday back in september (my request). i looked and looked through ravelry and finally found a sock that i felt would do the yarn justice. started them 10/13 - finished 11/9. not too shabby, especially with a crazy toddler running around.

9-5 socks
socks that rock - 24 karat colorway

it's not an actual cable even, just an ingenious way to do it. love them! i've been wearing them constantly now that it's cold, yea!

beautiful socks

faux cables

i love the cable running down the heel, so gorgeous!

pretty heel

gone missing.

my fetchings

completed fetchings!

and evie's crazy cindy lou hoo hat (what her nana calls it)

evie and daddy (and her new hat!)

last seen around the time we moved... haven't really looked for them until now, as it's been spring and summer and we didn't need them but now it's officially COLD and... searching and searching and nothing.

i don't even think i could get evie to keep that hat on, she takes off any hat that isn't velcro'ed on with a chinstrap (see the fleece hat in last post) but still... i'd like to know where it is at least.

:( bummer.
