Another Pair

Finished another pair. It is going to take some practice to get this right. The first one felt a little big so on the second one I did the foot before the toe 1/4 in shorter and the finished product on the 2nd sock is a better fit. The bigger one, of course, feels funny but I will definitely wear them.

This is what I used: Filatura Lanarota Country Sock 45 % Cotton, 40% Superwash Wool, 15% Nylon. No color title. This yarn was made in Italy and is approx. 400 yds a skein. I used size 2 2 circulars. That is a very easy way to make socks.

I want to thank Melissa for the yarn.

Two views shown. I do like the way the yarn patterns. Can't wait to do another pair. This could easily get addicting.

My first skein of Handpainted Merino

This is my first skein of Merino wool. I just love the brightness of the colors. And of course I like the green. So bright.
Now to figure out what I am going to do with it. Socks of course but will it be pattern or not. That is the question I am pondering.
Any ideas are welcomed

One Sock Down

This is the first sock made with yarn I received for a b-day present. I took this picture twice and it is still blurry. So sorry but you can get the idea of the striping. Thank you Melissa. I love it.

Cuddles for Jacksonville FL

Hi all....It has been awhile since I have posted, so I thought it was about time to let you know what I am doing.

As you may know the Humane Society in Jacksonville FL had a very tragic fire. Our Loves group is now in the process of making Cuddles for the surviving animals to have in the bottom of their cages.

Mine will be mailed out Monday April 23, 2007. This is a group effort and we are hoping to be able to provide these animals with many Cuddles.
