Here is a peak at a few others...Plymouth encore, and cotton (green), lambs pride at the bottom, and of course cotton ease:) I decided not to put it all out there, I was cleaning out the stash to organize for christmas gifts.. I had better be getting yarn for christmas, these people are wiping me out!

I went to knitting group and had a ball! Brynne was there knitting a sock and I hadn't noticed she was doing short rows until I was leaving!! We sat next to each other all night long:) I have always been interested in short rows for heels and toes..She sent me a formula when she got home that night, with a pattern to boot! After reading it carefully I freaked out and wrote her for HELP!!! I decided to do what I always do and just jump in by myself.. it is the best way to learn! so I was up all night and look what i did:

I got my package in from my needle pal Stacey from Sheep in the City and I got some bamboo circs, my favorite:)  I got another surprise in the mail too. My niece Virginia from Virgie Sews made stitch markers for me..Wasn't that sweet? She is always doing nice things for me...I need to pamper her!!!

And I leave you with Hillard! He will be 5 in Dec.  He went for some testing for a study he is in for autistics.. that was such a bad day for him, I don't think we can ever go to that side of Houston again, he would start screaming! He is the living map.

It is still hot in H town and this is the second time this month the AC is out!!!! go check out Starknits... she is having a sort of knitter and crocheter's wieght loss challenge!  I joined, it should be fun. hmmm, I am sure I will think of something else I want to say after I post!  And thanks guys for all of your comments about the hat and booties it meant a lot to me..And thanks for putting up with the typo's, I always have a ton of them!

Love the stash photos, Cath! You have some great things!

Great work on the heel too ;)

Both of your boys are so precious. I am sorry that was such a hard experience for Hillard.

Your little men are so beautiful - you must be so proud. &Hillard is so fortunate to have such a caring mother to help him.

Your short row heel looks great! Aren't they fun? Short rows and toes up have made me seriously enthusiastic about knitting socks.

I am with you on Hillard's bad day. We've had some like that too. For us, it's usually blood tests, though Sam is getting better at those too. But he has an amazing memory for places in general and especially places where he was unhappy! Hope you get some good help from the study though. Let me know!
