Worm hole or..........

Alien abduction? I'm not really sure what happened to April. So here's what I've been up to. Lots o'knitting................... I've been knitting for the new baby that will arrive this Tuesday. My little niece/nephew tootsies will stay toasty in these for sure!
Stash busting squares from left over sock yarn for the barn raising quilt from Knitalong.
Socks for my son ~ These socks and the square above are knit from the same skein. It pooled something awful on the socks, but the square shows the hand painting off so beautifully.
Everlasting bag stopper for my cousin ~ and three more completed I have yet to photograph. These bags are so roomy, I take two with me everywhere and am just about plastic bag free!
Socks for me and Grey's Anatomy viewing. It's sKNITches syncopation sock yarn in colorway 'seriously?'. The yarn is self-striping, but I wanted to get a different look with it. I found the pattern on Ravelry called 'Circle Socks'.
Knitting for a June bride. This is for my friend Connie's bachelorette party. It's blocking and still needs a ribbon. Such a cute, flirty, sexy pattern.....I have the same yarn in red, so I will definitely knit this up again!

For the home. Lace curtains for the bathroom window. The pattern is from Knit Picks - Cafe curtains. I will post another picture when I finally get around to hanging them. More for the baby. A little "Take me home" set. The hat is from Stitch N Bitch 'umbilical cord hat' and the kimono is from Mason Dixon Knitting. Both are knit with blue Sky cotton.
Jumped on the Meat Head train and knit up a child size in blue sky bulky. And can I just say that as much as I love the color of this yarn and the sqwooshiness....it's the buttons that make it. C'mon, who doesn't love bug eyed froggies???
Whew! I guess that's it for now. Little baby this Tuesday and Memphis in May the following Tuesday. Life is good. ;)

Wow, just found your blog and it looks like fun! I am excited to see all your knitting projects. I am working on my first everlasting bagstopper. Looked long and hard for a pattern that I thought I would like and it appears this would be the one. So I am glad to see other bags knitted up from this pattern. Gives me a good idea.

And wow-wee! Lots of knitting going on! Holy smokes. Love it all...
except the thong. Somehow it doesn't seem ... um.... right... *shudder at the thought of knitted undies*

And... are you REALLY going to Memphis? I assume there is a Pilgrimage planned? Hmmmmm?

I've just found your blog and I'm loving the booties! (Well, those and the aliens. LOL ) Is that your own pattern? Or could you direct me to a place that sells the booties pattern?
