I am just a gal who loves to knit and spin in my spare time and thought it would be nice to share my projects with everyone.

Peach Tree Socks

This is a super fun and very pretty sock pattern designed by my friend, Deby. You can purchase this pattern called Peach Tree Socks on her site. I used size 2 needles on 64 stitches. The yarn is Happy Feet by Plymouth Yarn Co., color #10. The yarn is quite reasonable in price and I really like the texture. I am on the heel flap of the second sock and I can't wait to put my feet in these pretty and cushy socks.

Pink Socks

I started these socks back in April. I threw the ball band away and couln't tell you what brand the yarn is. I can tell you it is wool. They are done on size 1 needles 72 stitches. I am a rather tight knitter and it made a nice firm fabric that I am sure will take alot of wear. I sure have missed knitting socks and I am impatient to finish these and start another pair.


On Vacation

I would like you to meet Cameron. Isn't he just awesome!!!!!!

This week is the week I have been waiting for for months. DH and I are taking a full week of vacation to stay home and enjoy just being home. I have been working in my flower gardens and knitting alot! Boy it feels great to knit again!!!! I sure missed it.

I finally finished my new little grandson's baby blanket. I didn't think I would ever get it finished. It isn't all that big either. It is made of a dk acrylic baby yarn. I needed something durable for my daughter to throw in the laundry. I made an identical blanket in blue for my first grandson and she just loved it and wanted one for the new baby.
