Class Sock Success! ! !

I did it! I have two socks done using the *Class sock* instructions via *Sensational Knitted Socks* that I recently purchased :) I call them my first *Dobby Socks* or House Elf socks because they are so small.

Can you tell which one I did first? lol

The bottom one with the kinda pointy toe. It was my first time to do the kitchener stitch when I made it. I practiced some more before doing the second one (the top sock was done second) .

But now I have the confidence to do REAL socks for REAL ppl!

But I have also started my Deep Ocean Prayer/Ritual Shawl. I will tell you more about it later.
Have a great day!

Ice Gardens in my Windows

Every year, when it gets cold and drear, there is one thing that continues to cheer me.......
The lovely Ice gardens that grown ON my windows up here.

Down south, we could buy plastic that resembled this, but up here they grow......
And each day there is a different garden that has grown over night.....

A beautiful moonlight garden....that vanishes as the sun grows in the sky.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

I got Sensational Knitted Socks Yesterday!!!!!!

I ordered it from B Dalton, it came in very quickly!

It looks like it is gonna be the perfect instructional book for me. EASY to understand, detailed instructions!

Now all I need is more needles and more yarn!!!! LOL

Finally have more pictures added!

Well, I finally got pictures of most of my fiber works posted! As well as got most of them to their destinations :)

The smile on beautiful Cassie's face makes all the time spent knitting well worth my while! I love it when something I have made makes someone happy.

Days with no knitting?

I guess I did need a break.

I finished the scarf for my friend's daughter, still need to take a picture of it, maybe with her wearing it?

Then tried to make hubby some slippers with no pattern.

Can I say it was a BAD idea? as in VERY BAD IDEA.

I did get to practice a couple of ways of starting socks from the toe up, and one worked pretty well, so it wasnt all wasted.

Now I cant wait to get my first sock book! I have had it on order at the book store, my son was supposed to pick it up today, but he forgot my gift card : ( I may just have to send him back to town tonight!

Hack Cough Ugh

Sure, I start a new blog and get sick. Not really coughing sick, just feel cruddy. Still knitting tho! Something I can do when I dont feel like doing a dang other thang! lol

Almost done with my last Harry Potter scarf for my friend's daughter.
( )

Amazingly, I am running out of yarn. Doncha just hate a tight budget when you have things to create???? Doent help that the store is also out of the yarn you need!

I need to get pictures taken of the other things I have made, and date all my pictures. I forget to do little things like that. Kinda of a scrap book of creative journey.
