Zauberball Socks and a Toque

I knit another pair of zauberball socks (2.25mm needles) and had enough left over to make a spring toque on 3 mm needles. I used my mother's recipe for decreasing which is done in about 5 or 6 rows and was able to use up all the yarn. I am going to Canada for a visit and will use this for the cool evenings in the spring.

It Just Goes to Show.....

Not sure exactly what. But I'm sure it just goes to show something.
Sometimes things are just so scary that you have to buy them.

Silly Knits

There are some projects that are just silly, and tell the world that to us, the process of knitting is sometimes more important than actual practicality. In that vein, I present the Netbook Cozy. :)

It does look cozy though, don't it?

There Once Was a Boy Who Knit....

There once was a boy whose father used to hit him. He’d strike the boy when he came home from work, he’d scold the boy for being too thin, too weak, too smart. On occasion, the father would hit the boy with more than his hand, he’d hit him with his words. “You can’t be my son. You look nothing like me. You look stupid with that red hair and freckles.”

Hi and My WIP

Hello, I used to knit when my kids were babies, but got out of the habit because I got into other things. I recently had a minor sugary that has prevented me from being very active so I have picked up the hobby once again. I am building a throw with Wool of the Andes tweed in lost lake heather following the Bernart Twist throw pattern.
