Projects No. 4 and No. 5...

 Project No. 4
... My first footie!
 ... ran out of yarn on this one... so I'll just have to play musical feet for a little while.

Project No. 5
... My first socks!!
 ... I just used what yarn I had on hand for this one.  I wanted to test out the pattern before I bought more yarn to make it for real.  Glad I did because the cast-on and increasing needs a little tweaking.

Welp, soo much for that!

I had big plans to get up early and scoot to the post office before work this morning and pick up a package of yarn I ordered from TaddyBeeKnitting’s Etsy Shop.  Only to waylaid by the notification that the local PO only opens at 8am on Saturdays! Today is Wednesday!...:-(

I had wanted to take ‘le sac du marche’ to the FG/CH K&C meet up tonight and try to make some more progress... bbooooo!!

Luckily, one of my co-workers brought me a copy of a[nother!] scarf from that just so happens to call for the same homespun yarn I picked up on sale at LBStudio this past Sunday.

It looks to be a super easy/quick pattern that I might be able to make some major headway into very quickly... between the wine and beer runs that is..sniff (... or hiccup, as it were.)
