Pimpin out the boy...for knitting sake!

My latest project....a hat from Dale of Norway's Designs for Baby

My loves, My boys!

My loves, my boys!

FINISHED! The striped socks! WOO HOO

The Boo, modeling the latest in prefelted knitwear. He's a hunk huh?

MOM! Please, I'm tired and I don't WANT to model your Lucy Bag. Felt it already!

It's about time I posted some new pictures huh? Especially since these are from a LONG time ago! This is the large Lucy~pre felting! Poor baby huh? The things his mom makes him do!

Sock time!

I'm very proud of myself! Using Harlot's book Knitting Rules, both the sock pattern and the general recipe...I was able to turn turn the heels of both socks at the same time! WOOO HOO! Have you ever done something that you didn't imagine you could? It felt like I had accomplished something! I'm loving these socks now! I can't WAIT to finish them!!

Karen was kind enough to pick me up some Opal sock yarn, tiger and owl. I can't wait to start them also!

I'll be sending the blue cardigan off to Marissa as soon as I sew on the buttons and block it! I'll take pictures this weekend!

Sweaters, roofs, crazy times!

You'll have to forgive me if I don't make a lot of sense today, I spent the night on the roof of our school last night. For more details see the Quad City times article here.....
It was a cold night, but a lot of fun! Tonight, I'll be comatose on the way to my niece's college graduation rather than knitting as I should be!

I did teach two people to knit last night up on the roof even made the news clips!

Finally I have pictures of Mae's sweater ON Mae of all things!! Isn't she cute!!

I'm working on socks at the moment. Nothing else on the needles...but lots of things planned.
