I made a baby sized pair of socks on dpns!! I only have one set of 4 dpns size 3. So I am limited to what I can do. Now I am making ME a pair of socks. Just got done with the heel turn and gussets on a cuff down pair. I'm making them ankle high because that's what I like to wear. :)

A nice lady in my town is giving me Addi's size two circs and I can't wait to get a chance to go over there. Yesterday I was going to but everyone is sick and it snowed.

Speaking of yesterday and snow....and mother and I were suppose to go to our LYS for a Spin, knit whatever or maybe it's knit spin whatever...anyway whatever!! It snowed. My mother couldn't even get out to the highway from her house. :( We were both so totally bummed!! So at the LYS I have a pair of hiyahiyas and sock yarn waiting for me plus a free ML knitting lesson.

Needle Frustration

I have very few needles and seems none of the needles I need to do the projects I want to do. It's about an hour away to the nearest real store that would sell more than 2 kinds of needles. All I have is Walmart and I already bought everything they have. They only have one length in the circulars. All smaller straight needles are 14 inch and I don't like those. If it's not icey out it's snowing. If the roads are clear I have too much running to do for the kids. Starting to feel a bit bahhumbugish.

Where can I buy needles online for a fair price? I'm too broke to get the fancy expensive ones but I would love a set of those swappable circulars. Any suggestions on a kit that doesn't break the bank?

just starting out

i'm a knitting mama with a newborn. I'm honestly not a bad speller or typist but I'm generally NAK. Which means, Nursing At Keyboard, so excuse typos and such. Guess that could mean Nursing And Knitting. :)

So far I have made: matching hat and scarf, baby santa hat.....Guess that's it for finished projects. OTN I have a Christmas scarf intended for one of my kids' teachers. A dishcloth with praying hands but I think it's messed up. Was intended for MIL but if it's messed up it will go to my 6 y/o for her babies as a blanket. I started to make a caterpillar but frogged it and moved on to the previously mentioned dishcloth.

Will do pics later. Have a sleeping baby on lap and 2 kids who are suppose to be asleep but keep getting out of bed.
