I'm test knitting!

This is a first for me on many levels.  First for test knitting, first for a Pi shawl, first for beads....I'm going crazy....

2 pair in 2012 :)

 I'm on fire, 2 pairs of socks in 2012!  I never said I was a fast sock knitter.  On the contrary, very slooooooow.  Throw in the fact that I have been knittng and spinning other things and I do work....trying to make myself feel better here.

I mailed my brother his socks and he called to say they fit perfectly.  Yay!  So perfect that my nephew wants a pair and he asked if I could knit him an identical pair for Christmas.  Why didn't I take better notes?????????????

Now I need to buy more yarn...

I finished plying my BFL and it is KINKY, but beautiful and I think I have enough fingering yardage for a shawlette.

What else have I been doing, besides knitting?  I have been playing with precious babies like these.  Take a gander at this puppy pile.  These are a few of the great dog available for loving homes at our Humane Society. 

Isn't that precious????????
