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.

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.

Your socks are so pretty, the yarn is incredible. I have STR in my stash and I like it a lot, too. They have the blank yarn specially spun for them. I enjoyed reading about your gardening, we planted some tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers today.

I am such a bad blogger. I havent checked to see if you had any new posts up. And you do! I love socks that rock. I cant remember if you got the lightweight or heavy. I have both and it knits up so nice. One of the nicest yarns I have ever used. It can spoil you.
Your socks look great.
