First we'll start with the cute sleeping dog picture. Look how he holds his back feet with his front foot. Too cute!!!!!! This was the other night. Right now he is in the exact same position minus the toy duck.

I finished the first Guitar Man sock for Uncle Kev. It is so big! Size 11. I didn't realize how big that actually was. I love this pattern, it works up so quickly. After I finished the heel and gusset I started on the foot, I figured I was about 5" into the 10" I needed I was actually 7" into the foot. I wrote down how many repeats I completed so I won't have to measure the foot on the second one.
I'm also working on some American Girl Doll outfits. I want to set up a shop at Etsy, I figure 6 outfits is a good start. Then I'll add some baby clothes too.
Well House is starting, Ta for now!

This is one of the Guitar man socks I'm making for my uncle for his birthday. I've done 6 repeats so far. There are 10 all together. I will be doing 11 because I was told that this yarn shrinks 10%. I'm really liking knitting these. It goes pretty quickly. There are 12 rows to each pattern repeat, I can usually do 2 in one sitting. The yarn is nice to work with too. I'm using Knitpicks Essential. Well thats about it. See ya tomorrow.
1. This is where you should be on the last row before the shaping.
2. DC across to first 3dc group, DC in the middle stitch of the group. (shown in purple) Ch 4 or whatever is called for in the pattern.
