No but...this is my first skinny yarn sock. I've only completed worsted weight socks before.

I was just curious. I wonder how other people do things. Skinny yarn takes some getting used to but now I like working with it.

Noobknitter: you have a six-week old? I'm surprised you can find time for this forum, but am sure the break from caregiving is much needed.

I have a smart phone. When DD is nursing (a lot) I can post, watch YouTube videos etc. :-)

Oh, thats pretty!!

Dishwashers tend to scratch plates. Ugh. Barkeepers Friend can probably get rid of it. That stuff is amazing! I use it to remove those same scratches from my porcelain sinks and also use it on pans with stuck on food. We have the non stick type (DH doesn't like non stick or Teflon ).

Lookin' good! If you can knit while nursing baby I'd think that's good for both of you, it relaxes you and a relaxed mom makes for better nursing for baby. Enjoy the combo until she starts grabbing everything.

Nice color combinations. I'm starting a sock project but I think I'll be more conservative. For some reason, I don't want to draw too much attention to my ankles.
