A Little This; A Little That

It’s been one of those weeks. I’ve set little goals for my projects; which has helped keep me on track. I only had the toe left to do on the second blue sock, so I didn’t allow myself to touch any other knitting until those were done. See it worked:
Simply Blue; Pattern Simplicity from the Eclectic Sole
Yarn: Knitivity Down Home Sock, color Blue Jeans
Size 0 dpns
Then, I needed to get the 2nd triangle done on the vest and start the miters, so it was my next priority project, just that, no further and no picture.
I also needed to do a Christmas stocking sample for my July class… the knitting didn’t take long, but the embellishing has been a chore (but I like the way it turned out):
Here's a closer look at the I-cord trim with bells and pearl beads: I had a birthday just the other day, I got plenty of love: (it was last sunday in case you were wondering)
and last but not least...
Saucey had a relapse of her UTI symptoms and had to go to the vet once more. She is still too uncomfortable for them to get a good sample, so still uncultured… but the vet added an anti-inflammitory to her regimen and hopefully next week she will be able to provide the needed sample. It's not easy seeing her in so much distress. This weekend I will be focusing on getting a secret gift project done and crossed off my list so that I can free up more knitting time to make some super special things for my soon-to-be born granddaughter.
Have a nice weekend!
PS: How do you like my new header?

The header looks great and I love the socks.

Hope Saucey comes along - it's so hard to watch your pet suffer. My DH had to take our Brits to the Vet today w/ear infections - I understand.

BTW, Happy Belated Birthday!!
