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.

Memorial Day

Well everyone ditched me for Memorial day. Kati (gd) started working as a lifeguard, Jodi was in Maryland meeting her boyfriend's parents. Nick met a new girl and Jami was in and out with her bf.

I got a lot of knitting done. Finished a pair of socks in Sockotta and have one more skein to go. I really like the way this knits up.

Fair Isle Help

Well I put the question to my fair Isle group and they came up with a lot of ways to correct this. I'm going to try them all and see what works best for me. I'm also going to list them in my next post. Maybe someone else is looking for some hints.

Fair Isle

I have been working on Patterns I order from the I love lama series. I finished the desired animal and have to pull the whole sock out because it was to tight. I was using the weave technique. I didn't want to carry float on the inside of the sock.

update Frogged this and never pick up again. Have plans to start soon.

Received for Mother's day 2 skeins of sockotta. I have already started one pair on circular needles. Sorry about the picture, I am still trying to figure out the camera.

And this is Angel. She was a stray and the vet told my daughter to take her home and hold her because she wouldn't las the night. That was about a year ago. She is blind in one eye and cannot control her hind legs well. She is a blessing.
This is Alley on the quilt I made for my bed.

Finished both sock only took a picture of one. These are my first pair of sock on one circular needles. I only use circular now for all my socks. I did not like the yarn for knitting or wearing. It is cascade 200 I think. It is very itchy to wear.
