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.

We have two new kittens. My daughter found them along side the road. I wish people would neuter they animals because not everyone is a sucker like me.
They have chewed thought all the cables on my needles and now I have to wait to buy more. But I love them just the same. I think I have talked my son into taking one. I think 2 dogs and 6 cats is a little to many.
I have always wanted to try dyeing yarn so these socks are done with http://kntpicks.com dk weight yarn. I used the toe up pattern in Interweave Magazine and each strip is a different flavor of Kool-aid. I had a lot of fun dyeing the yarn and with all the yarn shop over one hour away I think I will be doing this again.
Sorry about not blogging lately but I have been busy with summer and knitting. I have finished two more pairs of socks and I'm now trying to knit the Iris garden from http://six_sock_knitalong/. I haven't gotten back to my quilting yet but hope to start soon.
