Mardi Gras Mask

First, here's a free patttern for ya!

Mardi Gras Mask (link is a Ravelry download).

Yarn: about 50 yards of worsted weight yarn. Plus 10 yards or so of fun fur type yarn.
Needles: US3 or size needed to obtain gauge.
Gauge: 5.5 sts/inch.)


The boys are still sick, but not as bad as last week. Mostly just runny and stuffy noses now. My 2.5yo can not blow his nose yet, which makes for some very interesting moments, let me tell you. Yuck!

I finished a couple of things recently:

A pair of socks for DS#1, since he outgrew his other pair:

My own design, based on Cat Bordhi's Sky Architecture. I may write this pattern up, if I can upsize it for adult feet! :-) I did lots of ribbing in the hopes that they fit him for a lot longer than his other pair did - plus I made them about a half an inch longer than his feet are now.

And here's an itty bitty sock on an itty bitty sock blocker:

Now I want more of these!!!
And I got my Malabrigo Lace the other day from The Loopy Ewe.
I've started a lace stole with it, the Juno Regina from Knitty. I've never knit with Malabrigo before, but I've touched a finished object made with it prior to this. OMG, what a soft yarn to work with - I cannot wait until their sock yarn is available!!!!!!

That's it for now!
