groovy baby

september 15th, i'm going to have my own groovy baby. grandbaby that is :-)

whoohoo!!!! i can't wait!

needles on fire, i'm channeling austin powers -

with this psychedelic baby blanket -

or maybe rowan and martin -

look at the groovy colors of this superwash sock yarn dyed by claudia, regenbogen colorway,

maybe cream -

or peter max -

raja approves, or it could be the catnip ;-)

the center mitred squares are finished, and claudia has shipped some skeins of rittersporn (larkspur) for the garter border. i used the basic mitred squares from the koigu book.

dd's feetsies looking cosy in anne's red mountain pass, er shingle creek trail socks. these are going in the christmas prezzie box.

i've already pre-ordered the new boudica socks kit.

every day i count my blessings that my children are safe.
my thoughts and prayers are with the parents of the virginia tech tragedy. i cannot even begin to imagine their loss.

A grandmother? No way, really? I would never have guessed that you had children old enough to have children. ;-) Congrats!

Oh, the socks, the socks... love them :-)

Congratulations on the new grandbaby! I can't wait to see what else gets knit in the months ahead! That blanket, well really the entire post, makes me think of the test patterns that were run on the SciFi channel when it was running down to startup.

Oh, and thanks for luring me to the darkside of ordering more sock yarn!

absolutely fabulous baby blanket--and thanks for all the music nostalgia along with the baby announcement. I have deep grandbaby envy, but none of the older kids are reproducing.
