Now that #2 son has moved out, I get my sewing room. I have to call it a sewing room cuz 'you can knit anywhere, why do you need a room???' Calling it a sewing room makes more sense to some who shall not be named. I've been dreaming of this 'sewing/knitting/stashing/reading/napping/DVRTVing/girly' room for many years. Here is the newest addition to the (i'll have to think if a name for) room.
A super sewing/embroidery machine. It was relatively inexpensive for an embroidery machine because it uses the puter's brains for fancy stuff. I can download designs to embroider and it also takes any clip art, digitizes it and then I can use it. I love it.. That's how I made the little romper below. Working on a matching dress for his big sis. They live in San Fransisco and the weather is always nice, so I hear.
Back to knitting. I have a pair of socks going in a check pattern of knit3, purl3. I'm also doing the back of the heel in this pattern instead of the regular (boring) heel.
