Three Bags Full

The unravelings of the mind of a G*R*I*T*S (Girl Raised In The South) who knits.

The Transfer and the Socks

I had 4 6-celled embryos transferred Sunday at about 12 PM.

I finished my Transfer Socks the night before. I've been bed-resting, and wearing them, along with my Lambie Pajamas (Nick and Nora's Counting Sheep).

I'm working on Lady E, and am about on the 25th tier. It's looking good. I'll post a picture later.

Lady Eleanor Pacing

I've started working on Lady Eleanor. I cast on Friday, and am trying to complete 3 tiers a day. I'm on tier 10, so I guess I'm behind. Just as long as I finish on time. I want that gold medal.

I love working with the Noro, and so far have found no knots. I am re-winding it, and that may help.

On the baby front, I'm still in a holding pattern. My donor is doing great, and will probably get her trigger today. The retrieval will be Thursday, and Brad will go in then, as well. I'll go back in Friday for another ultrasound. Everything else depends on my lining.

Lots of love to my secret pal! I got the best softest baby alpaca from her! Wow! I'll post a pic later.

Sweet Valentine

This is the sock I'm knitting. The pattern is in The Sock Journal. The yarn is Cascade Fixation Effects in 9398

Olympic Training in Progress

I got a package yesterday from FuzzyMabel. 10 skeins of Noro Silk Garden in #50. Beautiful.

I also started a pair of socks on Wednesday. I'm using Cascade Fixation. The pattern is from the Sock Calendar Book. It's the Valentine Sock. I want to wear them for the transfer. So they're my prayer socks. They are pink, of course.

The Brainwash Bag has one side completed, and the strap is finished as well. I have to finish the other side, sew it together, and felt it.
