I Hadn’t Realized…

…that the simple combination of some simple errands, during which I finished a pair of hand-knit socks for myself…


…and then having a dear friend over to help the kids make sleep pants “all by themselves”…


…and then capitulating to the requests for matching pajama shirts for their favorite “guys”…


…all adds up to a pretty spectacular day.


  1. Pattern, please! The socks, not the pants. 😉 The pants are very cute, but I don’t have a sewing machine, nor do I need to get involved with one more hobby.

    So beautiful! Any info on the yarn would also be appreciated. I’m just nosey.

  2. Mmmm, yes, that would be helpful, wouldn’t it? (Are you on Ravelry?)

    The yarn is Knit Picks Risata in the Grass colorway – a cotton/merino/elastic/nylon blend that is very nice to work with, and has very subtle color variation because it’s got plies of slightly different colors. And the pattern is’s Hourglass Socks (free on their site).

  3. Love the pants and LOVE spectacular days!! (Jacob & Emily are looking so grown up…)

  4. Those socks are great! I’ve been meaning to learn how to crochet/knit/sew.

    Glad to see you have a good day…hope more are around the corner for you 🙂

  5. Rockin’ socks!

  6. Love the socks!
