Mother's Day, a.k.a. Sonia's Birthday

My baby is two years old. I cannot believe it. It seems like it was just last week I was swaddling her in blankets at the hospital and sniffing her sweet smelling baby head.

We had her birthday party at Pizza Hut due to extenuating circumstances (like the freakin' A/C going out AGAIN!(!!!) and the buckets of rain that would have made all our planned outdoor activities really soggy and not much fun.) I forgot the camera. Stupid! Anyway, fun was had by all.

On to Mother's Day. I made this bracelet for my mom. She LOVED it. And the green looked really good on her, too.

And knitting. I finished the Broadripple socks. I'm ashamed to admit how long ago I started them. Second Sock Syndrome bit me in the ass. So here they are on my fat ass feet.

I used Knitpicks Dancing in the Ballet colorway. Not the brightest thing I've ever done. The yarn is great, very soft and stretchy and lightweight and cool. It just doesn't work very well with this pattern. I think a more stripey variegated would have been better. Luckily I have a ton of more stripey variegated sock yarn in my increasing-by-the-day stash, so I can have a go at these again sometime. These are for my grandmother who has enormous bunions (don't worry, Grams doesn't have internet access so she'll never know I'm talking about her freakish feet) so I did a round toe instead of the pattern's toe hoping to give her more room for her weird ass feet.

P.S. Yes, that's the PUPPY in the background. She's not very smart, but if she does one thing well, it's grow. Last weight check she was 70 lbs. She is eight months old.

Ah, what the hell. Here, have a picture of her too.
