Socks to large

I finished a pair of socks for my wife. They are in a 30% wool, 20% silk, 50% acrylic blend. My gauge must have been off - a little large for her. Any way to shrink?

l'amour

Well, Possums. I received a birthday gift from the man I'm courting...He lives across the country in western New Hampshire. He sent me YARN(!) from the woolen farm/mill just down the hill from him (!!!!!!). {PLEASE ignore the little robot in the background, frantically waving it's arms, exclaiming....DANGER WIL ROBINSON! DANGER!] It's not fancy, but excellent quality: The type of wool that you'd use to make a aran sweater that will last generations. Hmm. A stash enabler....this one has definately potential....

Just need to vent!!!!!

Helloo....I should be knitting right now, but seeing as I am so frustrated right now I can't see straight, so I know if I pick up a pair of needles, not to mention a set of five dpn to knit a sock, I know I would have a real mess on my hands. Knitting usually relaxes me, but today I think I would find that it would just frustrate me even more. Thanks for listening, hope everone has a better day than I am having.
Happy knitting!!!

Bishops Yarn in Chatsworth, CA SALE!!!

I have to tell you that Bishop's yarn in Chatsworth, CA is going to have a HUGE yarn sale this coming week - they have already put out the yarn and it's ready to go - they open on Tuesday at 10AM - I think they're selling all the "fun fur/funny/railroad, etc." yarn for $2 a ball - on Thursday the actual sale hits, and they'll be selling it all for $1 a ball!!!!) - I'll be there on Saturday to help out, but I did my pre-purchasing today while we set everything up - it's an amazing opportunity for those of us who like novelty yarns (even to bulk up our stashes) - for charity knitting, scarves, hats, baby things, whatever..

I can't guarantee the pricing of the sale, but I CAN guarantee if you like eyelash type yarn or fuzzy stuff, you'll be in HEAVEN!

if you're in the area, make sure you visit!

hugs

Yet Another Mario Scarf

Here is a scarf I recently completed using Mario's pattern. The yarn is Lion Brand Homespun in Grape. I used size 15 needles and the whole scarf took only half a skein. I'm currently working on another one with the same type of yarn but the color is called Waterfall. The stitch patten and the color combination make the scarf look like a waterfall! Stay tuned for pics.

Knitting Clamps

Not too long ago, I saw an ad for knitting clamps in a magazine. I'm just finishing a sweater, and I hate using pins to keep pieces together while sewing. The advert showed these clamps were designed for holding knitted pieces together while assembling. After seeing the ad, I even visited the website, but didn't buy and forgot to bookmark, and I can't remember the name of the company. Google has been no help. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I'd appreciate any tips.
