There was a guy I dated in high school that would always say "nice." Towards the end of our relationship it was like nails on a chalkboard. Kinda like the girl JD on scrubs dated that would never laugh she would say "that's funny." It was very irritating. When the ex bf would say nice he would either mean ohh that's cool or nice in a condescending way. Nice was a word with many different meanings for him. Today I bring you: Nice...

Nice... blue sky with no clouds. Warm sunny day here in Western PA.
Nice... the sock that lives in the mini van has finally grown more than 1" (I'm using Vesper sock in Astro on size 0's)
Nice... I managed to cut my pinky finger on my right hand while shaving my legs. (really, who else does this?)
Nice... 1 almost finished Gentleman's sock with Lozenge Patten from Knitting Vintage Socks. (started April 14)
Nice... my legs are so pasty white they are reflective
Nice... I have a new love for almost solid sock yarn, even though my camera has a hard time capturing the beauty of STR boysenberry see?
Nice... I've finally updated my blog ; )
A few days ago I finished a pair of socks that I can't quite show off just yet. But as soon as I was done I casted on a pair of infant socks for Kailey. I though heelless socks would be a good idea for her, so she wouldn't be able to grow out of them anytime (real) soon. I grabbed my Knitting Vintage socks book and casted on 36 stitches, 2 1/2 pattern repeats latter I casted off these bad boys:

Now tell me something....
do these socks really look like baby socks? or something else? Like maybe *cough*weewillywarmers*cough*?
The mail man left a nice big box from Tisha on my front porch Monday afternoon, check out what was inside!
(minus the baby!) Tisha crochet 2 lovely blankets, a super sweet sweater and bonnet for Kailey! Tisha your work is so lovely, thank you so much!! The bonnet is perfect, I was thinking that she needed one for Spring! It was great to meet you at Rhinebeck girl, thank you again!
An knitted Finished Object just in time for Spring. At least I think its Spring, but the weather seems to be a a little confused
(snow by the leftover tree stump in the side yard. boy was it funny watching Mike cut this down and chasing logs down the hill. *snicker*)
Luckly the snow melts as soon as the sun hits it. Stupid lake effect.
What was that? The finished Object you say? Did I say something about a finished object? Did I? Why, yes I did. And guess what. Its not a sock! (shocked are you? hehe)
