Hubby's Socks Finished

I have finally finished them...I think I need to keep track of how much time it takes me to knit a pair of socks................I like doing them together on 2 sets of dp's. I still am able to finish them together....
Have you seen KP's new Harmony needles...........Well I just had to order a set of small dp's and then I will turn around and get the 2nd set. I will be sure to post a picture when they get here.
Next pic will be Jerry with his new socks on his feet. I am very pleased with how well they fit.

Our Loves Shirts

Shame on me. Our shirts have been finished for a few weeks now and I am finally posting the finished product. B&J Embroidery did these for us. I just had to have some more made.

I bought two fleece shirts at Van Heusen and Bruce did the embroidery for me............I have an orange long sleeve and a denim shirt on order. Looking forward to getting them..........

Socks for Hubby

As you can see I have been busy. I love making socks and I am really getting a little better at doing it. These are being done in KnitPicks Telemark 100% peruvian wool. They are hand washable but I love the feel.
I have also just joined Socks for Soldiers and am looking forward to this new endevour. Socks are a perfect projects for the hot south and it has been terribly hot here lately. I hope it soon passes.

A Little of This and That

Hey y'all. I have been playing around with some squares.........These are mitered squares and I am going to pile them up and then try to join them into a ghan. Not sure yet where it will go. I have also been making some cloths because I have gotten behind in them.

It has been so hot here that the ghans for the troops have been on hold. I really want to get the pile I have finished.

Blue baby socks

I have finally finished the little socks promised to a friend........I forgot to take a picture of the pink ones that I made first and they are on the baby's before I sent this pair I took a pic...........Must remember the camera when I finish something..........Anyway they are done and I am now working on a pair for hubby. Yep I will post them when completed. Sure wish the fingers wouldn't cramp when I knit.

Love Making Socks

I think it is about time that I post to my blog especially since I have another pair to show off. The yarn for this pair came from eBay and I have no idea what it is. Forgot to write it down. I know it is washable wool and my gauge was 6 spi with 3.75 mm Knit Pick dp's.

I washed them and they are really scatchy. I really hope that I will be able to wear them.....I love the way they turned out. These socks will really be warm.
