Birthday Socks

These are knitting up quickly and are so pretty! I'm using Cookie A's Summer Sox pattern, free on the net.

Thanksgiving Day Crowd

The picture says it all! We are a happy bunch!

Sweater Weather During Thanksgiving Week

Our weather turned chilly (I know but 60 degrees is chilly for us!!) so tall baby Grandson got to wear two sweaters in size 2! We Texans aren't used to wearing many clothes and he still balks at shoes and socks. I had to sneak the hat on when he was distracted by puppy!

Molly and her Puppet are Resting

I need to clean out my sewing room but instead, I'm playing dolls! Here is Molly helping me play!

Turkey Wine Topper

The cute pattern on the net described this turkey as a finger puppet. It's adorable as a finger puppet, hand puppet for my Molly, and a wine topper for my fav white wine.

Birthday Mittens for Jordyn

Yes, I'm always knitting about 10 projects at once. Jordyn's 9th birthday is Nov. 20th and these are a surprise. She lives many states away so it will be fun for her to receive a package in the mail.

Knitting Socks at Grocery Store

I'm always knitting public, which is the only way I can finish so many projects. Can you find the skein and part of a sock in the grocery cart?

Knitting at Raia's Pasta Place

Starting the first sock, toe up, and enjoying delicious pasta!

Sock Knitting

Right now, I'm totally hooked on socks for myself and for family members. Once I wore hand knit socks, my feet will tolerate only hand knit ones. Forget about cheap store bought socks! Yes, I'm so spoiled. Here are socks for Kristine who helped track her baby son while we shopped at Yarns 2 Ewe in Houston.

A Wee Bit of Knitting

Yarns 2 Ewe is a fabulous yarn shop! I bought two different sock yarns and also enjoyed some giggles as baby grandson whizzed threw some yarn displays!

Playing but Still Knitting!

I flew to Houston to play with a special daughter and adorable grandson. Also finished daughter's birthday socks while visiting and gave them to her early. Success! She enjoyed wearing them! These are her happy feet!
