Michele Knits

I love Knitting,reading,quilting and cooking. I have three children and a grandaughter. So I very rarely get to knit or quilt for myself. I'm not complaining.

Hats On


Socks for me

It has done nothing but raining all day. Did a lot today before the body gave out. Finished this pair of socks for myself using worsted weight yarn. It's the first time I've used Knitpicks yarn for socks. It was much nicer than I thought. I usually use fingering yarn for my socks. I started thinking I would just make a quick pair and got tired of round and round half way up the foot.

Hello Again

Hello again. I'm going to try blogging again.
Many projects have been completed since I last blogged and many new yarns have been tried. I had not knitted since my children were young, when my disability started I took up quilting to keep my mind going even though my legs were not. In the last year I have done little quilting since I now need help. I started knitting again last year at this time, I had always wanted to learn how to knit socks. So I join some yahoo groups and started. Since than I have tried mittens,gloves and hats (all fair isle). I'm having a great time but spend much of my time frogging and starting over. I have also joined http://ravelry.com/ and spend a large part of my computer time on it. In the days to come I will start posting again with photos.

These are Clogs for my daughter Jami. They are my first felted project. I used the Paton Classic wool and the pattern from Fiber Trends.They go up fast but I found the pattern was not confusing but printed so small with so many sizes I had to rewrite it for the size I needed.
