Its a Great Day!

Well, I did work for 4 hours this morning but I am home now. I got a questioned answered for my knitting so I can start that going again. I am working on Do the Math socks by Becky Yoder in the Friendly Socks Book. It is actually a lesson in making socks that fit. So far so good. They do look neat. I think I have found a love for DK yarn more than the thinner fingering weight or the worseted weight. I am going to try to find an easy pattern for wrist warmers that include half of the fingers. They would go over well for a few that I know that live in the North. Its still warm and humid here. I love the weather and living in Fl. I keep bringing plants home from work.. Poor Dan! He has to find places for them. I cant bare to have them thrown out in the dumpster! Going off to knit! Have a great day!

Picture of Ca Hikers

Here is the finished Ca Hikers..end date of Sept. 21, 2006. They came out really nice, I thought. I used a DK yarn. I would like to thank the Friendly Socks Group for all of thier help. You can find the pattern in The Friendly Socks Book by Laura Andersson. So many talented knitters have made a wonderful read. The designer of the socks is Debra Chinn. Thank you for the pretty design.

Work Tomorrow

I tried to knit some today, but frogged abit more. I find a mistake and I cannot leave it alone. Got to get this sock done on time and time is marching on for me. It was a good day off and I would love to have another couple of the same. I do have a weeks vacation left but now sure that I will take one this year. I havent decided what my next knitting project will be but I do want to make some Christmas presents for the kids. Gotta go.. its late.

I had to work today so little time to knit. I finished one sock for the KAL and now have to get busy with the other half . I think the finish date is the 21st. I know I can do it if I don't frog as much. I do enjoy knitting.. just can't get enough of it. I can't wait to be able to knit something for the grandkids. That will make my heart sing. Keep Knitting!

Work tomorrow

I have been playing again this evening.. working on my blog and knitting some during the day.. I hope my new buttons are working.. Check it out... I am coming along on my Kal.. only the first sock though.. haven't gotten to the heel yet but soon. I work tomorrow so will go to bed early tonight after an hour or so of knitting. Had a great talk with one of my buds today on the internet..sure is a lovely person...Name is Kellie, in case you should run into her. I am trying to talk her into making a blog for herself. She is such a creative writer. I think she likes fiction and romance...not necessarily in that order. (vbg)

About time!

This is about the color of my eyes right now! I have been working on my blog for a few hours with some success. I am using hints, suggestions and good ole know how from my blogger friends.. thank you for your kindness! This has been fun. I didn't do much knitting today. I have tomorrow off so I will be knitting then. I have some catching up to do if I am to finish my KAL from the Friendly Socks Group (Yahoo). Just wanted to touch bases with my blog..Making sure all is working before I say good night..Hope you like it!
