Another Reason to Knit

April 19, 2018

My brother called on my birthday.  My nephew and his wife’s baby was born the day before.  Drat!  He missed by one day.  I’m so very happy for the new parents and grandparents.  They have been waiting so long.  Now, I can make a proper label for his quilt.  And knit lots of stuff, of course.

  Baby socks from leftovers.  They probably won’t stay on his feet because it is silk and bamboo yarn.

  A boldly striped sweater that won’t fit until he’s two.  He will, however, be easy to find.

A don’t have much in the way of baby patterns, so I’ve been pouring through my books and magazines.  I can’t find what I have in mind, which doesn’t surprise me.  I may have to wing it, but some guidelines would be helpful.

It makes for very difficult blogging.  I’ve got two more baby socks to show you and some great pictures of Cora.

Suddenly, It Feels Like Winter

November 2, 2009

The damp, chilly air is getting to me and it’s dark by the time I start fixing supper.  Last week there were leaves on the trees.103109 006Now, there’s hardly any leaves left.  I can’t stand it.

I was going to blog every day this month, but I’ve all ready blown that.  I never even gave it a thought yesterday.  I can use the excuse that I was out most of the day, but I didn’t leave until almost 2PM and I was home by 830.  I’m still working on baby socks.  I’ve got three and a half pairs finished.  I also have another sock kit to make.

102409 019It was only in the mid fifties when we went for our walk today.  I guess Autumn is finally here.  Can Winter be far behind?  At least I have plenty of warm socks.  I was looking at my sock yarn this morning, trying to decide which one to use next.  I have also been looking at shawl patterns to use the lace weight  yarn I bought at Knitter’s Nest.  It was hard to drag myself  back to the baby socks.  I finished one sock of the third pair of baby socks.  I finished cutting all the pieces for the small quilt and started sewing.  Can I get any more boring?102809 007
