About Me:
Refreshing my knitting skills, taking classes and loving it! Hope to make many many projects.

So far I've knitted scarfs, 2 dickies (turtle neck with no sleeves or body) a dog sweater and wrist warmers (fingerless gloves). I'm now working on a pair of socks. I'm a very slow knitter but I am trying - love the art!

Two socks at once

Posted on March 5, 2011 at 12:12pm 0 Comments

It's been a very long time since I logged in - life happens I guess.  I'm so glad I remembered my ID and password - it is so nice to see everyone's projects.

 

I've finally taught myself how to knit two socks at once from the toe up a couple weeks ago.  It was confusing at first but once I got going, I sure found it a lot more comfortable holding two points.  And hopefully, with knitting both socks at once, I won't suffer from Second Sock Syndrome :D 

 

I don't…

Itchin to learn but where to begin

Posted on September 10, 2009 at 3:10pm 7 Comments

I want to learn to knit a sweater.....I've knit socks, scarfs, hats, etc but I would like to enhance my knitting skills and be able to wear a sweater that I knit with pride :) My questions to this wonderful world of knitters on this site - How did you begin to knit sweaters? Can it be learned from a book? Unfortunately my favourite wool shop has classes but not on how to knit a sweater.......Where would I begin? Do I jump past this fear I have and just start? Any tips or suggestions would be… Continue

You know you are addicted to wool when

We have an electronic bulletin board at work and on Friday someone posted they wanted to sell 15 balls of wool. Yahoo! I got to the posting in time. I am now the proud owner of 15 balls of Red Heart yarn for $20.00. The colour is varigated (sp?) - bright green, blues, pinks (if I remember correctly).... LOL - I bought it sight unseen (she did have a picture of it) and I will be picking it up on Monday. I almost started dancing in my office, I was so excited. It doesn't take much when it comes… Continue

First sock done and second one started!

Yahoo!



I'm very happy to report that actually finished one sock last weekend - yeah! It's an ankle sock - you would think it would be longer (thigh high) for the length of time it took me. It turned out pretty good, even if I did make that mistake at the heel. The next one will be better and hopefully won't take as long.





The wool I'm using is called Noro (made in Japan) - Silk Garden Sock Yarn and is made of 40% lambs wool,… Continue

Argh - my sock

Posted on February 15, 2009 at 9:00am 6 Comments

I got a lot accomplished on my sock yesterday - yes, sigh, it's the same one that I started knitting in September...... However, while finishing the gusset, I realized that I had been decreasing on needle 3 in the wrong spot (should have decreased at the begining of those stitches on needle 3 but instead I decreased at the end on that needle). I know it's probably criminal and I would love to have a perfect first sock but I'm not going to rip it out. I've ripped this sock twice already and… Continue

Hi there. How did you know I was thinking of you today? It's been a while, but all here is as well as can be expected. Looks very much like all is well on yours, too. Hugs,

Maria

You have a little dog, just like ours, such a pleasure to have, he is 12 years old and we dread the day we will lose him, he is our alarm clock in the morning, and heards us to be at 10. back and forth until we go. Irene

Thanks for the advice. I wasn't count as I went along. It's not to bad for my first square.

Please give you Skeeters a hug for me. I wouldn't be allergic to him either.
I've only had Honey for 2-1/2 months . She was starved for affection and had
internal injuries, from which she has recovered with my excellent care. She's still pretty needy but not as much so as when I got her. She's my best buddy too. I think rescued dogs make the most affectionate and appreciative dogs.

Did you get your first pair of socks finished? I'm struggling with my first pair.
True to form, I chose a difficult pattern to start. I just never learn.

Mamma,

Thank you for the encouragement.

What is your darling dog's name? Looks a bit like my Honey, whom I rescued about 2 months ago. She's about a year old and I love her so. I live alone and have no family but a sister 3,000 miles away. She is great company - very loving with just a touch of ornery.

Back to the socks. I am having a good time. Kind of surprised me. Of course I haven't turned a heel yet. I feel like that's looming over me like a vulture but I'm very good at following written instructions and I'm really determined. Thanks for the prayers, I'll get busy with the ones for you.

I put up pictures of my blankets! I left one of them out because when I took pictures of it, I was in a hurry, so it looks like a beach towel! I had to get it into the mail to my sister, so I didn't have time to take new pics.

Have a great weekend!
