Sister's Sweater

I made this sweater for my sister. I used Jamieson and Smith 2 ply Jumper Weight and 3.25 mm needles. The colour is Thistle and is much prettier than the pictures show.

Socks... Finally!

I finally finished my son's socks. They are orange slipper socks with a short row heel. I debated about the heel for a long time, that is why it took so long to complete.

Gettin' back into it

My knitting has been sporatic at best to completely in hibernation for quite a while. I can't put my finger on why that was or what's up with me now.
