Toe-up socks

I'm trying socks from the toe-up...again. I've had no luck with a few other patterns, so I'm doing a short-row toe & heel sock. It seems to be working.

They do look rather odd without a foot in them. I'll have Bug model them when they're done. I got a few inches of the leg done last night. They should be finished by Sunday.
I'm using Schachenmayr Crazy Cotton yarn and, I think, size 3 needles...The toe and heel are shaped with short-rows. There's a 4X2 ribbing on the top of the foot that will continue onto the leg.

Raisins are good again.

Bug has had a love/hate thing with raisins her whole life. I offered some this morning (it's been months since she 'liked' them) and she agreed to try them...asked for more! I wonder how long this will last?
This morning, while drawing on her Doodle Pro (art medium of choice), she discovered that she can draw globes. Of course, she's quick with that erase bar, so I had no chance of taking a picture to post. Earlier in the morning, I tried to get a hug. She pulled away and said "I NEED to draw". That's so cool....

Lucy Bag is DONE!

I just finished this bag Saturday night. Had to...knitting circle was Sunday and I needed something for show and tell. I LOVE it! I used 2 strands of Istra yarn (it's from it in a sale bin) and size 10/5 needles.
Here it is before felting:

Lucy Bag is nearly done!

I started knitting a Lucy Bag for myself, then we all got sick. I set it aside for over a week. I've got a few ends to weave in today, then I'll be taking pics, felting it and taking more pics....then I can bring it to my knitting circle for show and tell tomorrow. Bug is excited. She gets to join me and the knitters tomorrow. I think the thought of cookies and other treats is getting her more excited than the thought of knitting. She'll come around...Actually, she enjoys walking around the table, touching all the yarns (to her nose, of course) and declaring them "beautiful".
She was busy making new rhymes today...Angela/spatula and Asia/Gumbasia (from her Gumby DVD) were the highlights.
Right now the Bug is upstairs with her dad, discussing different types of woods...spruce, curly maple, mahogany, etc.
