Between working full time and my camera battery being on the fritz, I have been a bad, bad blogger. Part of the excitement of finishing a project is posting it on my blog! But alas, I have fallen behind and although I take most of the blame - my wonderful Kodak camera battery is far more the culprit of my lack of blogging!
I have gone absolutely crazy with the book, Favorite Socks from Interweave! These are the Flame Socks in Cascade Fixation - I just love them

Diagonal Cross-Rib Socks are also added to the list of my favorite socks from this book. I used Reynolds Signature DK yarn (It is starting to get frosty here in the mountains of NH and I was looking for some comfy warmth for snowshoeing this winter). Size 3 needles. A wonderful twist to the pattern - a left sock and a right sock! The pattern changes on the second sock so the cross-ribs go to left instead of the right! It made for an interesting knit!

An old favorite from Knitty - Thuja socks on size 2 needles from Knitpicks Felicia yarn. A Christmas present for someone who needs a little color in her life. She is one of those people who wears tan and black all the time and I am always teasing her that she would be much happier if she would just wear brighter colors! Of course, I am a jeans gal with lots of bright sweaters and shirts - purple and pink are my favorite colors to wear and you should see how bright my nursing scrubs are! They can see me coming a mile away (HEEHEE)

I found a new yarn that I just had to try- Sirdar Snuggly Fair Isle DK yarn. A simple summer baby sweater with short sleeves and a hood - it is much cuter than the picture and a chubby little baby inside it would just make this perfect! Soooooo soft! It goes right to the grandbaby trousseau.
It made me realize that I would rather knit true fair isle - I could have more control over the color pattern but it was worth a shot.
I promise to be a better blogger and hopefully my new camera battery will last more than two minutes now! TATA for now!
