I’m knitting slowly. I got this a few weeks ago to make this. ( I couldn’t get it not to glare and get the colors right.) Snowflake, from Knitting Fair Isle Mittens and Gloves. Now, I have not done any colorwork beyond stripes, so this will be my first Fair Isle piece. IContinue reading “Teaching myself new tricks”

Penny Measuring System
I am very excited about what I am calling my Paint Box Socks.They are in Patons Kroy sock yarn, colorway Paint Box. I am knitting them at a very small gauge, which I didn’t think about when I started, (maybe something should have clicked when I was getting 10 sts per inch when I swatched)Continue reading “Penny Measuring System”
1. So, I am still kniting. I have finished one of the Fancy Silk Socks for my mom. The bad news is that I have weighed the sock and the leftover yarn from the ball, and it is not close enought to attempt another one. Especially if I want matching stripes. (47g is close toContinue reading “Random Ramblings”
I have been knitting. What, you might ask, (of course you asked!) have I been knitting? Why, I have been hit with a lighting bolt gently persuaded to knit socks! This is the Fancy sock I was working on for my mom. No, it is still not done. I hate have serious concerns about thisContinue reading “Sock Obsession”
Davis has solved my picture problem. Yay! And it was not my nagging post about him not fixing it that put him over the edge. Anyway, seeing as I have to be at work early tomorrow, I will post about knitting. Kisses.

I also finished the poncho I was working on. See what happens when I tell peopleContinue reading “Maybe if I tell people…”
Happy Birthday Ella!
Hooray! My sister is 24 today! (No, that does not make me feel old at all. Especially not after my MD told me that I was old enough now to have my cholesterol checked yesterday.) For her birthday, Ella got my first completed pair of adult size socks. (I had many false starts. I’m sureContinue reading “Happy Birthday Ella!”

Happy New Year
Happy New Year to everyone! I hope this year is the best year of your life. I am still working on the blog style, however I think it is coming along nicely. I even have a title for my blog now. My loving family tried to help me come up with a name the otherContinue reading “Happy New Year”
I have always wanted my own little world, and now I have one! I am starting a blog, mostly because I want to share my knitted experiences with other who share my interest, especially since my family and most of my friends are insane for thinking knitting is boring uninformed about the joys of knitting.Continue reading “Welcome!”
