Here is a wedding gift I knit for a couple who got married this fall. It is a kit from Knit picks. I knit it to guage and the measurements were correct. I had a lot of left over yarn and I would have made it bigger if I had known I could. It was fun trying the different yarns and seeing how they go together.

Here is a close up of the pattern.

Here is a pair of skating socks I knit for my 5 yr old. They are nice and warm and keep his feet really warm while skating. The photos are not that great, sorry. They were knit from the toe up on 2 circular needles.

Here are my socks of doom for "Sock Wars" that I did in the fall. It was a great pattern and lots of fun.

Happy New Year!

Well, it is January 1, 2007.
I have not blogged all fall, but not because I have not been knitting. I have done a couple of shawls and have been introduced to knitted dishcloths. I decided that they would make great Christmas gifts so I knitted over 20 of them and handed them out.
I have started the year with a month of prayer and fasting and what I am fasting from is knitting. Not that knitting is bad, but it will free up a lot of my time to spend seeking after God.
We start back to school tommorow so I had better get ready for that.
I already have some knitting projects lined up for February and am waiting for the new book "Victoria Lace Today" to arrive in the mail. It might even be here tommorow. Just in time to not knit. How is that for poetic justice.
We had a wonderful, blessed Christmas (or Jesusmas as we like to call it now) and a great start to the new year.
Blessings to all who read this.
