Niecphew Outfit & SoS 08

So I finished the requested outfit to bring home my niecphew from the hospital in September. I made the Presto Chango Sweater and Pants I really liked using the Malabrigo yarn for these items. I want to make some matching booties to go with it and a hat to bring it all together... just in case it's cold the day they head home.

Plus I finished my first pair of socks for Summer of Socks 2008

They are house socks I made for me to match C-A's b-day socks from last year. It's School Products Wool Tweed (chunky) on #8's Toe-up improvised pattern with short row heel. I'm already almost done with my next pair of socks too. I guess that's what being home sick is all about. I almost finished an entire sock in 2 days!! Too bad I slept for 12 hours yesterday or I just might have!

Now back to the great Primary Care Physician search! It's so hard to find a good Dr. in Brooklyn. It's not that they don't exist, it's just that if they do, they have to take your health insurance, and be excepting new patients and have an opening on the day you find them while home sick. I've got calls into a couple. One comes highly recommended by a friend who just happened to call while I was looking today, and the other is in a part of town I think should have better doctors. Plus a few I've gone too either treat me like a child or only take 2 minutes with you. I'm sorry I'm a small town kid who had the same Dr. from birth until the last time I went home to visit him.... I like a personal touch.
Wish me luck!
