Here's a snippet of my second BSJ for a coworker's grandson-to-be. I'm planning on working on it in the car while travelling to our vacation destination this coming weekend (yeah, I'm not really wanting to bring baby-knits to my FH's week-long family reunion. Non-knitters sometimes don't get the whole knitting for OTHER people's babies. I'm not wanting their confusion.) Speaking of which, my brain is actually kind of fuzzy on where I put the dang thing. Hopefully I didn't loose it. Stress is frying my brain, I guess.
I also started my so-called "Durable Market Bag" knit with cotton. I'm still on the base of the bag, but I plan on doing lace as the main body, complete with durable straps.
*Second Sock Syndrome: a silent, but deadly disease caused after knitting the first sock of the pair. Symptoms: fatigue, groaning, laziness, the throwing of dpns and the extreme dislike of the idea of having to knit up the whole thing again. Other side effects are reaching for other yarns, possibly fondling them while wishing or day-dreaming of the next pair. This disease is treatable by knitting the pair at the same time. Effects are slow, but highly curable.
