SNOWY SUNDAY; COLD FEET EDITION
Are your feet always C O L D? Mine sure are. So this afternoon, in honor of Slow Stitching Sunday, I have cast on for a pair of socks for myself.
It took me a while to recall just how to work on DPN's (double pointed needles) so that my stitches weren't all twisted but resulted in knitting in the round -- been many years...but it came back to me!! YAY!!
I love this variegated yarn..browns, blues, turquoises,,,and I am making them roomy so that
my tootsies can breathe in bed. These will be bed socks....
and isn't this an adorable Ditty Bag?? I purchased it from Lowland Originals...online.
I want to make some bigger ones for my knitting projects. I like the drawstring because there are no zips, snaps or straps to get in the way of pulling your yarn to knit....
I am now watching the first televised RED SOX (hah, socks knitting while watching the SOX!!) Spring-Training game on tv. ;--)))
that MUST mean that Spring is coming right??? Couple with "Springing" Ahead for Daylight
Savings time last night--we can at least hold out hope for warmer weather....
