Oh yeah, woohoo, yeepee! Lookie here my completed 'Sock Exchange Thingy Socks" I actually finished them last week and they are finally on the way to Peacock. I am sorry they didn't go out sooner but I haven't been feeling well. Today I was working on b.i.l.'s socks I did get a bit of progress on them while I had a 3 hour dentist visit Ugh! But, should be ready to turn the heels soon. They have been a slow going project for me the yarn is so thin I believe it's what is called fingering weight. It feels like I am knitting with dental floss and tooth picks these smaller needles are a whole different ball of wax. It is so strange knitting with the smaller needles I guess it has to do with the fact I am self taught and I started with large bamboo needles and novelty yarns and now I am gearing towards classic knitting with smaller needles and double pointed at that. I am casting on for another pair of socks and I am using this handpainted sock yarn I bought online. I bought it from "sweet georgia" its so soft and is labeled as a fingering-slash-sport weight yarn in the most incredible brightest wear your sunglasses pink, purple and as I call it 'groovy green colors. I am trying to knit up a few Christmas presents but I know I am being overly ambitious considering how close to holidays I am already. But I consider knitting my mental yoga it really has such a calming relaxing effect on me, except when I can't understand the instructions and I make dumb mistakes, because I'll tell you I hate frogging!
I am silly and I love to laugh, I love cooking and I am self taught so I am always trying to improve and learn as much as I can. I believe chocolate or lemon bars are a cure all, I love to eat, I studied fashion, marketing and design, I love to go to thrift stores and find vintage cashmere sweaters to bring back to life to wear, I love my jeans and flip flops. I enjoy dressing up too... I love perfume. Blue is my favorite color and I adore my family.
Such a green way to go. This great so when you toss a fruit into your handbag or backback it protects it from getting bruised or poked by a pen or a knitting needle. It is a better way to go than a plastic baggie. I made mine from cotton so I can toss it in the wash. I have made so many they have been a hit with friends and family and such a pretty way to carry a healthy snack. Find the pattern at gonnapurl.blogspot.com
