I think I am going to try to knit a pair of socks every month this year. I really love how fast they come along and they are so satisfying when you can slip them over your toes and stay warm. Even better when someone notices that you have handmade socks on and you talk through the process of how you spent an entire weekend knitting beside your husband on the couch through who knows how many bowl games. Knitting really is a great past time. I find it allows me to be right next to my husband all… Continue
I must say that I think I have out done myself this time. I finished this pattern in 9 days. Now I have had a considerable amount of time off from work and that has been tremendously wonderful. I'm not sure who to gift this beautiful shawl to yet, but it never takes us knitters long to think of the next birthday or holiday. Happy New Year's Eve Knitting and may this new year bring you much yarn and handmade happiness!
I love knitting! I have a passion for knitting like I learned it a week ago. I love making socks and teaching others how to knit.
I have been married 1 year and about 3 months to the man God made just for me. I am the oldest of 3 girls and some how I am the shortest at 5'7.

We are on a new adventure.
WOW! Your work is incredible and man you can knit! Your shawls are gorgeous, your socks are to die for, I could go on but them your hat won't fit...really I am just joking. What a phenomenal knitter you are and it shows. OK...and the knitted tote - amazing...I am in awe of you, SockGirl! I am slinking back in shame to my neglected little page to try and figure out how to load pictures like you and Cheryl...showoffs!
PS: Wedding pics are beautiful - Go Tigers! Enjoy your adventure!
Thanks for the compliments on the felted totes. Believe it or not, all three used the same amount of yarn-just felted differently. Pattern is from-you guessed it-KnitPicks. I cannot take credit for the color choices. Again, done by KnitPicks. Gretchen Green in La Pine, Oregon. Snowing and icy!
Thanks for the comment about the Huck Hat. I need to upload some pictures of it and my other kniting projects. You asked about my labels - I got mine at Name Maker in Atlanta. I got them from the internet. I don't remember what I paid, but they were very inexpensive compared to some of the sites I looked at. I'm also a member of the American Sewing Guild and got a couple leads from their website, but they were too pricey. Mine say "An Original By" and your name is inserted. Each label is individual, not a long tape that you cut. I didn't want a label with knitting needles or a sewing machine, since it would limit using them to just one of my habits. Having an embroidery machine, I could make my own, but sometimes the cost just isn't worth the time to do it. I have made my own fancy label for a jackets I've made when I have a big space for it.
Your shawl is absolutely fabulous! The color is gorgeous and the detailed beading is a dainty sweet touch. Like I always say "You are amazing" and you keep getting better and better. You must be very proud. When I grow up I want to be a great knitter just like you.
