Border Section!

Yes! I am knitting the last few rows of the border section!  I made this much larger than pattern called for since I had 300 + yards of Jitterbug sock yarn and the pattern calls for 200 yards of DK weight yarn.  I will use up as much of the yarn as possible!  Happy New Year!

Road Trip Knitting!

More time to knit on one of my projects!  My hand spun yarn for socks, and almost to the heels!  Could I possibly get to the heel turns before the new year????

Girls are so cute in two of their Christmas cowls! We went on a special outing to see the new Star Wars movie, and they look great!  Plus, they are cozy warm!  So glad they like them!!!

Knitting Notions!

Wow! My family gave me a laptop for Christmas!  This has been on my wish list for many years, and I am so excited to have it now!  My youngest set up the screen with these adorable alpacas, plus my identification picture is Bad Alice, the sheep from Trenary. Yes, my family gets me!!! :)  So, now I'm knitting my custom fit sweater and using my laptop for blogging, Ravelry and all those important knitting activities.  Thanks Family!!!!!

Knitting with Charlie!

Our Christmas Miracle, Charlie the lovely rescue cat that we adopted today! He is a beautiful grey with a "tuxedo" white marking on his chest, plus white paws. So far, we think he likes us, and we think he is adorable!  He is sitting with us while I knit on a Christmas cowl.

This year's theme for my knitted hats was Seahawks colors, so hopefully the area teen boys will like them!  Here are rock stars Cori and Liz modeling these fabulous hats! Next year I hope to knit more for this wonderful and worthy cause!!
