MoreHouse Merino?!

Remember the whoreHouse...oops, I mean MOREHOUSE Merino I had and was knitting up a pair of socks for Miss Priss?? Welp, tada!
*Posing to the tune of "Isn't she lovely...Isn't she beaaauuuttiiiffuuulll".....It kind of looks like my cast on edge is a bit snug on her legs in this photo but it isn't, really. It's just that she kind of has chubba bubba legs. She's not one of those toddlers that is really picky in eating and therefore has a menu of 3 items (thus driving their mommies nuts with worry) heck no. My kids EAT, they BOTH eat salads for dinner, quino (a grain and is quite tastey), broccoli, cauliflower, eggplant, cabbage, Kohlrabi, turnips, chicken, pasta, rice, spinach, kale, the list goes on and on but I think you get the point. The thing is, Miss Priss does NOT like sweets ( I knooooowwww, she didn't inherit THAT from her daddy) but believe you me, Monkey Boy DOES!! Ok, ya I have NO point to that, but whatever. This weekend was crappy, but I won't bore you, just trust me!
Before I go, lemme show ya these little beauties. There has been such a stitch marker craze going on and EVERYONE seems to be making them, well, I HAD to get it on it. This probably makes King 1 VERY happy cuz it's just another way to use up some of that "crap laying everywhere". I have TONS of both precious beads and just some pretty beads and I can't tell you HOW many jump rings and head pins that are laying around. I had alot of fun making them too. They may not be fancy or they may not be as professional as some out there but I like them and they were fun doing.
Well, instead of complaining and whining LOL, I'll just end today's post by saying that I can't WAIT for the mailman. I am awaiting several days of goodies!!!
Oh, and one more thing.....oh come one, like you didn't know it was coming *giggle*....Ya know how I was pretty disappointed in the new Vicki Howell book Knitty Gritty? It wasn't that I didn't LIKE it, it was just that it wasn't what I THOUGHT it was gonna be. Anyways, over the weekend I REALLY read and looked at it. I do like it. Even though the patterns are all on DIY, it is nice to have them all in one spot. The photos are nice and informative. I still wish I would have known it first and also that there were more of her patterns in it, but I like it:) I am actually starting the backgammon board on it. I'll keep ya posted on how it turns out.
Happy Knitting ya'll!!

Socks look great!!! Your stitch markers are really cute...I have bought all the stuff to make some and still haven't - I really want to try and make some...maybe I'll get to it soon.

I've watch Knitty Gritty several times - but, I always forget when it is on...

Cute socks for miss priss! I love those stitch markers, that takes patience to do all that bead work. They look wonderful. I'm glad you ended up liking the Vicki Howell book after all. I can't tell you how many times something similar has happened to me. I know which item you mean when you're talking about the backgammon board, and that's a really cute project. Can't wait to see it!
