About Me:
Engineer, CEO of Copper Creek Companies (one Division is a communication/marketing group specializing in the technical professions, the second Division is a specialty construction company for anti-slip and anti-icing products)
I LOVE to knit - it is my passion and my escape after 70+ hour work weeks. My favorite is lace-weight shawls, but I am getting hooked on the concept of design by beginning to explore the expertise and antics of Elizabeth Zimmerman. I also have a passion for knitting socks.
I am a Leo - and exemplify the sign. Strong, loud, opinionated, etc., etc. As you can see from my pic, I am a lumpy old frog, very royal in nature.

Reid's Bunch-o-Sox

Posted on June 10, 2010 at 1:22pm 7 Comments

I spent the last month knitting up 7 pairs of socks for the latest great grandson. He was born in late April, but his Grandma (my daughter-in-law) is having a shower this Saturday. Here is a photo of how I will present the "bunch-o-sox".





I adjusted the baby socks pattern in the Magic Loop instruction booklet to be able to use a fingering weight yarn. Knit Picks had just come out with the new Comfy colors, and I had to have some. I think… Continue

It's Spring on the Farm!

A few months ago, I met a lady in our area that has a farm with fiber animals (sheep, llamas, rabits and more!). Well, it is spring and the babies are popping! Here is a picture of her new sheep.





Brenda's 16 year old daughter named the new arrival - "Attila, the Honey Bunches of Oats"... How Cute!

Crossed One Finish Line with a KP Project!

You can see the details on my Ravelry project page (here), and more pictures, but here is a shot of the finished project....…

Holy Crap Batman! My Hubby Loves me!!

Posted on February 5, 2010 at 11:09am 5 Comments

OK - too make a LONG story short.... For Christmas this year, I made a wish list on Knit Picks for my Hubby to select from. He was really nice and ordered most of the items on the list! Well, by signing up at the site, he now apparently gets sale notices.



This morning he forwards me (at work) the Knit Picks email he got a day or two ago, and says - "Look, honey. Knit Picks has a 50% sale. Do you need anything? If you do, order before it expires. Use the (… Continue
