Baby Boy Blanket

I crocheted this blankie for a preggie teacher at school.

She loved it and I was happy to have finished it before she had him.

Well I can finally talk about something that I've been working on and having to keep secret from my 5 faithful followers! And that secret is............


I sent my BF, Lola, the Yarn Harlot book for Christmas. In January she sent me this letter telling how I've made her dishcloths and they are wonderful and all, but that true frienship was SOCKS! So I jumped in! Had never tried dpns (double points) or knitting in the round in my life!

My first sock! I did a basic tube sock. Just knit 3 purl 3 and did some decreasing for the toe. It turned out really cute but don't know if I will ever make it's mate. So I made a sock hanger and I'm going to hang it on the knob of my entertainment center.

The first pair of real socks. These were for Lola. I used Bernat Sox, that seems to no longer be available or I could just be blonde.

I'm really proud of them, holes and ladders, and all!

Here's Lola wearing her sock trying to do "Butterfly's" famous pose.

I love my wacky friends!!!!!

And here's sock yarn for the next and future pairs. Cascade Fixation.

Can't wait to make myself a pair. I'm going to go cast on right now!


My Motto

The new motto for my life.....

"Life should NOT be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, CHOCOLATE in one hand, YARN in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming WOOHOO! What a ride!!!!!"

Knitwits Knit

The Knitwits got together on Sunday for some knitting and to celebrate Lishy's birthday.

I knit her this dresser scarf. I used Sugar and cream cotton and the "baby genious" pattern from Mason-Dixon Knitting.

Butterfly worked on some socks. Jaywalkers with her koolaid dyed yarn. They were really cute.

As usual, Butterfly tried to put her "knitting project" on her head! LOL

I finished up a "secret project" , which I can finally post about real soon.


I am totally hooked on crocs! They are the most comfortable shoes for my achey feet.

10 pairs and counting!
