Stocking Factory

The annual rush to finish reproduction Christmas Stockings is on. Let's hope Kate Gosselin or the Octomom don't get my phone number.

Finished Warmer set

In case you want to see a picture of the finished Tudora & Fetching set. I think they look great together, don't you?

A Few F.O.s to report

I am working on so many projects (and driving so much!), nothing gets finished very often. I did however, just finish off a special pair of booties for a dear friend getting a new grandbaby soon. I also am pretty far (all 3 are started, so I guess maybe 40% done) into the making of 3 reproduction Christmas stockings. Also finished the glove & neck warmer set for my stepmom. Off to see her again in a few days. Back to the knitting, then.

My new Roommates!

Meet my new roommates! Rolling down the road, in a clown-car full of yarn. Looks like a crazy lady with lots and lots of glorious hand painted yarns. Someday I will tell the zany spacebag story, and those who know me well think I am totally normal, in spite of it all. Check out Jane Thornley's patterns if you want to see one of many reasons why I am so excited about these yarns, and I have lots of free patterns, too. They come in DK or Worsted Weights, 40 different colorways, Donegal Sock yarn, and Merino Tweed.

We are having a great Trunk Show at the yarn Cottage in Fairhope during Thanksgiving week. Don't miss out!

Back Home & Knitting Again

I am home, and can finally work on some of my projects. I have lots of things in progress, and still starting new stuff. In my travels, I got the book, Sock Innovation by Cookie A. WOW! What a gorgeous book. I intend to make every pair of socks in it. I started with "Vilai" which is covered in beautiful trellis work and ribbed cables, using HPKY's Donegal sock, in the Don Giovanni colorway. These would make wonderful gloves as well. I can't stop, and there are so many other things I should be doing. Oh well. Can you see why I love them? Brain food.
