Spring is here

Although we are finally getting some rain here in Oregon, it is still spring by way of the child being home for a week. We decided that the ward off complete boredom for her we would take her out for the day. First of all I should say that Britts spring break was effective as of Thursday last week, so by Sunday she was a bit bored especially since mom and dad have had to work. Back to our day, we took her to see Robots at the theater. I have to say it is a laugh out loud movie, as I am not into cartoons I was especially surprised at how much I enjoyed it. After the show we let her browse the mall, another thing I am not a fan of, but......it was entertaining to watch how much Britt enjoyed it. From there we hit a few other stores across town, which if you knew my husband he hates running from one end of town to the other but he took us without any complaints. What a guy! And the most important part is he took us back across town to our fav craft store so we could look around. I got a few things there, sock yarn to finish my socks I started yesterday and some new knitting needles. Wow it was a good day for all. Since then I have finished my socks and taken pics so that is what you will be seeing tonight.
I also was a tester on a pattern one of the girls made for a wrist purse. I thought her pattern was clear and concise and she added pics that I always appreciate. There wasn't very many errors for me to correct so all in all I thought it turned out well, the only bad part was that I picked out the wrong kind of yarn to use, I used peaches and cream and that was to thick for this project. I will be trying the pattern again with worsted weight yarn and see how that turns out. Well thats about it for now, here are the pics:

I'm dumb when it comes to knitting, so I'll ask - are the socks knitted? I do like the purse! Very neat idea and (lol!) easy to grab onto if you have to beat someone with it! Have a great day and thanks for the movie review - I was wondering, but usually, anything with Robin Williams is a hit.

Actually the socks are crocheted from the toe up. Was easy enough once I figured it out.
