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.

Totally Fraternal

These socks are totally fraternal. I normally like my socks to match as perfectly as possible. This time I just went with the flow. There was a knot in the yarn that changed the color repeats and they were quite large so I just thought I would leave it be. They are fun for a change. The yarn is Sockotta, the needles, size 2 Knit Picks.
On the needles I have the most adorable vest called "Lady Jane". A new pattern by my bestest friend, Deby Lake.

Spring Has Sprung

The apple blossoms are in bloom, the grass is getting green and spring has sprung. This is my very favorite time of the year. I am outside every minute I can be working in the flower gardens watching everything come to life or enjoying knitting on the swing. My knitting time gets even less during the warmer months so I try to stay with easy, light projects.

These are my Socks That Rock. I bought my yarn at Stitches Midwest in Chicago last August. I had read so much about this yarn and had to try it. I loved it!! I used Silkie Socks that Rock in the colorway, Moody Blues. I used size 2 Knit Picks needles and just made a plain vanilla sock. The colors are so pretty and the socks are so soft. They will be waiting in my sock drawer until fall when I put my shoes back on again.
