Feather and Fan

This is one of 2 feather and fan shawls I completed recently. This one was made from worsted wt. cotton I found the yarn at the "mill Ends" section of AC Moore, so I have no idea where it came from.

My first pair of socks!

I just completed my first pair of socks!. I have learned 2 things from this project. 1) I do not have a sock fetish. Nope, not me. Socks do absolutely nothing for me.

My Sunday afternoon knitting group, Carolina Flyers on Ravelry, somehow got "volunteered" to make wristbands for the Carolina Rollergirls (our local flat track roller derby team) about two weeks ago.

Facebook

Facebook can be a great resource for connecting with people you have lost touch with. I recently chatted with a former co-worker from many years ago.
