Well...we made it to another year! I hope that this New Year brings you all your hearts desire!
First day of the New Year and I have a FO to show you!!! My FAV (only) neice turns 5 tomorrow! So here's here little socks:
For MY Little Angel!!! She asked me to make her a pair of socks during the summer when we were camping and she noticed I was busy making all the socks for Christmas. I started them as the Little Angel socks from the book "Socks, Socks, Socks" but that pattern bothered me...all those little angels with the "bobble stitch" heads--to me it seemed as though they would bothersome when you wore them in shoes...maybe not so much with dress sandals. So I ripped them out and decided to wait till all the Christmas knitting was finished to come up with a plan. So in essence I guess these are a design of my own using a pattern stitch from another. I don't know if that constitutes being my design but hey, I don't think I broke a copyright law!
Here's the detail of the angel!
Happy Birthday Maggie!!
Here's a funny I received in an email newsletter---
I've been spinning on the new wheel...what a cadillac! I'll show pictures of the yarn later.
I've also started (yet another) pair of socks! Who would have ever thought that I would be so hooked on making these? Hubby loves his socks and I plan to make more for him. This latest pair is using the new Austermann Step yarn...what a great yarn to work with--after just a short time your hands feel so soft from holding it.
Well...gotta go take down the tree and decorations--and get my Black-eyed peas on to cook...so I can spin!!!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'
