So Long...

Even after a baby sweater, a hat and a pair of booties, there was still a sizeable amount of yarn left from my skein of Jitterbug. So, in the interest of using up the excess, I cast on a pair of socks for The Youngest. 
She actually keeps socks on her feet, a first in this family as far as three-year-olds go, so I know that they'll be of use.

On the book front, I've been reading The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy aloud to the kids at night. 
I grew up watching the BBC series as a kid. 
We had it on a VHS taped from TV.
I didn't actually read it until I was in High School, but loved it then as well. 
The kids are really digging it. They are a couple of hoopy froods.
As a bonus (or drawback?) we have all been singing So Long and Thanks for All the Fish on a loop.

Joining Ginny and Nicole this morning.
What's on your needles?


  1. I love using up yarn after I finish a project. I feel like I got a good bargain that way!

  2. i love making kid socks, i wish any one of my children would keep socks on! LOL

  3. Good for you using up your sock yarn! I totally would have thrown it in a scrap pile. I loved Hitchhiker in high school too!

  4. I love that book!!! Way to use up your whole skein!!

  5. Love that color yarn!

    We have the complete, increasingly ill named, trilogy (with all five books, plus a short story about Zaphod Beeblebrox. Can you believe we haven't introduced our kids to them? I should get on that.
