hubby's socks are just some Paton's Kroy on sale at Michaels....but I've used it before, and the yarn wears remarkably well.

Thank you!!!! I'm definitely making these for some baby gifts!!!! Too cute!!!!!
I don't like any kind of knots on my socks (even if I can hide them in a pattern); and our socks get hard I'm afraid of a spit/splice. I usually hold the end of one skein and the beginning of the new one together for several (sometimes more than several!!) stitches. You would think this would create something bulky, but promise----it's totally invisible (both to my feet and my eyes!!!)

absolutely perfect!!! This is quite lovely......and such good incentive to polish it off, so you can wear it!!! :)
These broken seed stitch socks were going to be the solution to my bag of leftovers. Between this pattern and the scrappy socks vanilla pattern (just switching up odd colors willy-nilly)....I was going to blast through that bag. (ha!!!)

so many good things going in your life!!! joyful......always put in perspective, though, when you hear such heart wrenching stories as the pianists. ( We had a young man from our town spend some time in a Denver rehab facility there for his paralysis....they researched and found this was the premier place in the country. Wonder if it's the same place? She'll be getting great rehab if it is.) Looking forward to hearing some of your hard work!!!!

Wheaten is still on my needles; it's still an enjoyable knit. It takes 5 skeins, and I'm only on the second one, so I'm sure I'll lose the love before it's finished. For now, I'm happy. My book this week is a real goodie! What the Fork are you eating?... Continue reading

so very pretty! our surprise dusting lasted about an hour...not even enough time to get outside for a stroll. I love the clean look that a new snowfall brings.....just think of the people who followed you! Love notes abound!!!

go for it!!!! I'll be your cheerleader, for sure.
the lining only took about an hour to put in---remember....the 'tablecloth' was already hemmed and all!! I think I dragged out the knitting, though, for months!
