Baby stuff and socks

Not too much knitting going on here this week. I haven't even knit a stitch on my Anastasia socks since Wednesday night. I did get some work done on my Pea Pod Baby set.

I really like this pattern. Great for a quick baby gift. I'm not going to knit the beanie that goes with it because it's for a winter baby, and winter babies need hats that cover their ears. I'll probably knit up some booties to go with, we'll see.
Here's a close up of the leaf detail:


I did manage another inch or so on my socks (most of it on Wednesday):


After the horrible attempt at a short row toe, I'm hesitant to try a short row heel, but this is Socktoberfest, and it's all about trying new things for me.

Wish me luck.

OH, the sweater is coming out GREAT! Your socks rock...that pattern is so cool. When I actually have some free time, I want to make them! Did you have a good weekend?

The pea pod sweater is looking FAB! You're inspiring me to get to it, though I am going to attempt the Angel sweater first, since that already has a "name" on it for Christmas!

Thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, the trekking yarn is just too beautiful. So much fun to knit. And your socks are great. What is the pattern?

the Sweater is beautiful and I can't wait to see the socks finished. Don't sweat the short row heel, either -- I've only done it once, but it really wasn't too bad (just have to keep track of your rows carefully). And, it goes w/out saying, Gina's yarn is GORGEOUS. I am dying to try that dye method now.
