Lovely Simple Lace

Morning All, I've put down my son's herringbone scarf till he returns from university this week. He asked me not to get to far along with it until he can see it just in case he'd prefer a different stitch. So now it is sitting in the basket waiting for his OK. So what to do in the mean time. I love knitting lace. At first I was really intimidated by it.

Wife Surprised Me

Afternoon All, Well I spent the morning hard at work baking the first batches of Christmas Cookies while my lovely wife went to the salon, a local craft fair and mailed packages to family in Texas & New Jersey. Then I then took her out to lunch to one of our favorite spots and as we were close to one of my favorite knit shops she suggested we stop in.

Not sure I'd have the patience... Is this anything you would actually attempt, maybe for your upcoming holiday celebrations?

Smoky Mountain Living

Though I live in the Mid-West (St. Louis to be exact) the Smoky Mountains hold a special place in my heart. As a senior in college I spent some time there and in the everglades with an ecology profession and several friends. That is why I occasionally pick up an issue of Smoky Mountain Living while grocery shopping today.

Flashback

This is my first attempt at socks. I made them about 5 years ago, before I knew anything about making socks, not that I know that much about them now. They are knit with a seam that must be sewn instead of in the round. LOL. I initially made these for my mother in law before finding out she didn't like pink. I instead made her the Beaded Teal Scarf in my projects and kept the sock for myself.

Though they didn't win, I'm sure it was a valiant attempt!
