Remember my Tofutsie socks...DONE! This brings me to 6 pairs of socks for 2007!
If and when you buy this yarn don't let that small ball of yarn fool you, especially for this pattern! Look how much yarn I had left over! I always wind my yarn into a center pull ball (just makes it easier for traveling).
But I do have a warning...Nikki, who's knitting the same pattern with the same yarn, has experienced "knots" in her yarn! I didn't find one...that is until I got to finishing the toe of the second sock. Not problem for me since I was able to kitchener up the toe and cut the knot off, but apparently Nikki had more issues with the knots! You would have thought I would have felt them when I was winding my center pull ball...honestly I don't remember any knots!
Onto my *Garden Beauties*! I know this is a knitting blog...honestly, the flowers are related to knitting...I sit by the pond while I knit and just have to share the view with all of you!
This is my Lilium...sort of an orphan found at a local department store about 5 years ago--dying a slow painful death from the heat of the pavement of the parking lot...I bought her at the marked down price of .50 cents! She's happy and healthy now! Don't ya think? (I didn't take a picture of the whole plant...I wanted you to see the beautiful RED color). Have I told you lately I Love My Garden?
Now...about the "Cat Hunting"--Old Mr. Ace likes his privacy--but then again who doesn't at times? He has his regular places to "nap" but here lately he tends to "disappear"...or so he thinks! To find him you either follow the snoring...or look for these signs!
This was the first shot, yes, he was snoring but apparently didn't realize that he was "showing" himself!
Later I came through the house only to have to grab the camera again...Mr FatCat was really "exposing" himself to the world!
So much for the *secret hiding place*!! All I need to do now is record him snoring and add that to the blog!
I'm preparing for our trip to Arizona in 2 weeks! Anyone have any suggestions of places to go while in the Phoenix area? Oh...I already have my list of yarn & fiber shops to visit! We will be visiting the Grand Canyon and Sedona...but I'm open to other suggestions!!
Well...back to the housework...yuk!
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!!
