I'd like to thank the academy....

the Bobcademy over on Ravelry and all the peeps that nominated & voted for me!  I won for 'Most Original Ravelry Name' How cool is that?  and look at my super awesome Bob trophy/badge - I love it!!!  Thanks guys!
Alright, so I've been knitting & crocheting & knitting some more.  I've been juggling projects, but I managed to get everything done on time, so I feel especially pleased with myself!

When I posted last I was working on Zach-Attack's blanket and cardi and hat.  I seamed & blocked the day before the shower!  It was so well received and look how fantastic it looks in baby Zach's nursery.  Grandma Penny was so sweet to send me a photo.  

All ready & waiting for that little guy to arrive.

There was more gift knitting - Cabled footies for my sil Anna.  These practically knit themselves - seriously, super quick.  The pattern is from One Skein and knit in worsted weight, they flew off my needles - fyi, that's my poor kid modeling the socks - My sil has teeny feet & my kid has bear paws, so it all worked out in the end!

Lastly, I was contacted by Audrey Knight of AudKnits to knit a sample of her stunning Smock Top Sweater for Knit Picks IDP.  This version is knit in KP Merino Style and it was lovely to work with.  Audrey's design is so classic and isn't that color dreamy? 

 That's it for now - I've just finished up another Mr. Foster Sock Monkey, but I'm beat and I want to watch the latest episode of LOST
