Easter Chicks

Aren't these cute? My sister-in-laws aunt made these for Easter. She knits them and then puts a little plastic egg inside. I thought they were adorable and want to teach my class how to make them. The girls I teach are so funny because they want to make everything I show them. It's cute to watch them interact with each other once they learn to knit. Just like "the big girls" when we all sit around and knit together. Gabbing and laughing. It really warms my heart to see them all bonding.

I have been working on my purse and flip-flops. I really want to get them done so I can start a new project, but I won't start anything new until I finish these. I already have enough un-finished things that bug me. I also am in desperate need of taking a "yarn stash inventory." I know I have more than I need for this lifetime. I can't help myself when I go in and see all the yummy yarns these days. You feel the need to touch them all and ooh and aah over them. If I ever worked in a yarn store, I would be paying them for me to be there! Socks are now what's on my agenda. I bought the small needles, but don't know where to start with the yarn. I don't want to buy anything expensive for my first pair and I also want to try an easy pattern. We will see.... Well, off to start my busy day and hopefully get a few rows in here and there. Happy tuesday to all who are reading my blog and thank you for stopping by!

I made my first pair of socks from "Sockotta" - One skein was enough for a pair, and was $9. I used #2 dpns, and cast on 52 stitches for my 8.5" around leg.
