One Down...One to go.

Well I did it and with very little trouble. Alot of people on the Rockin' Sock Club have said that they had issues with knitting these socks. Well for me so far so good....but they were right about one thing, the leg of the sock is rather tight. While i was knitting it i could get it on and off my leg fairly easy but now that it is off the needles its kind of hard to get it over my heel. Here is the pictures of the first sock done. Enjoy...
I have also been knitting another pair of socks. Just a boring 3x1 rib. I plan on making matching socks for the baby...but for now I am just loving the stripy goodness. I am using Yarntini yarn and the colorway is "Pure Knits" I love the Neapolitan colors it's making me crave ice cream. :) Gotta go and serve myself up a bowl. Happy knitting to all.

IT CAME!!!! YEAH....

It finally 2007 Socks that Rock Sock Club package. I can't wait to get knitting. I have seen on other blogs what to expect....and I didn't think that I was going to be this excited about socks but I am. The other pictures on the other blogs don't do this yarn any justice. It looks much better in person. I will take pictures tomorrow when there is some daylight outside. Happy knitting gotta go eat dinner.

Savons Blanket...and yarn

Here are some pictures of a quilt that I made this week for my friends baby. I ordered the material from a couple of weeks ago. I hope that Savon enjoys it.

and I broke-in my new Wool Winder....I absolutely love that thing...It definitely beats winding a hank by hand or by the makeshift method of using a hand mixer...don't even get me started on that whole ordeal! Now there isn't a ball of yarn that I wont wind. Here are just a few of the hanks that I wound today.
Enjoy and happy knitting got lots to knit....Just so everyone knows We are expecting a little girl this summer so I will be having lots and lots of cute baby knits to come in the future.

I can't believe It's been SOOOO Long!!! Sorry

Hi all dang it's been a long time...sorry. Lots of stuff going on here. One reason I haven't blogged in a while is because I don't have a charger for my camera so no pics. :( I did manage to have enough battery juice to take a couple of pictures of my latest projects. In the last few months I have finished my pinwheel sweater for my niece which I love. My sister hasn't sent me any pictures of her actually in it but I am hoping that she is putting it in to use. Who knows how much she will be able to use it in Florida. Here is a picture of it.

I picked the same color way and yarn as AnnyPurls did....thanks for having great taste. And a couple little projects for the new baby in the building....No it's not mine yet...But it is for a close friends new little boy.

These were knit in a couple of hours with some Caron yarn laying around my house...

Well I'm going to go but I promise to update this darn thing more often :) Happy Knitting.
