Scooter has requested blue striped socks. How do you turn down a wee one asking for handknit socks?!?!

Here is the yarn:


Of course, I failed to compute that on 4/5 year old sized socks the stripes are going to work out to be a lot wider than on adult sized socks. Oh well. Pictures to come soon of the sock in progress.

Mr Starfish has a co-worker who is a very talented woodworker. I showed him these plans and he said he could make me a swift with $15 worth of supplies. Sign me up I said! A couple of days later, I got this:


Yay! I can't wait to use it!

I have been begging my DH to make that swift for me for well over a year. I keep thinking, "Maybe for Christmas!" Then, "maybe for my birthday!" Looks like I need to tackle it myself.


That yarn will make some very cheery socks. Looks like you and I will both be starting some striped socks tomorrow.

The swift turned out very nice.
