Is Gerry a penguin? I'm new around these parts.
Hi, Tina, welcome to my blog.I'm Gerry, and most know my knits mostly end up for me.Oh, I do gift during the year, but I do love what I knit.:^)I hope you find enough of interest to visit often and leave a comment now and again.Wait 'til you see the finished hat. It's going to keep my ears soooo warm this winter.hugs
Haha! Sorry! I have been lurking and loving all your work. I like knitting for myself, too. I wish I could crank out socks as quickly as you do.
Knitting is my Passion right now, though I do love my sewing machine, also. Hubby is the recipient of my sox and he enjoys them.Right now there are three main projects that I'm working.A hooded Scarf for DD#2 that's been put on hold waaaay too long.A cardi, Abalone, that is in the Saffron colorway of PashminaA pair of sox in a yarn That is New to MeWhat about you, what's on your needle?hugs
Apparently, I have a few too many sets of needles. I learned to knit just so I can make socks, but it has been difficult finding the right fit for me, so I do want to press on. When I write this out I look like a crazy woman!A pair of red and black (school colors) socks for my son (1st sock too tight, was frogged when I got to the toes, and now will likely be too loose) He keeps asking me about them.A lone fingerless mitt waiting for a mate for a charity auction A Coastal Knits fabulous sweater about 30% complete for meA scarf (RIverrun) for my moma crocheted long sweater that just needs to have crochet motif embellishments sewn onA pocket gmome for my wool winter tree forest that mostly exists in my headSkeins and skeins of yarn crying for attention

haha! I wish I could meet you at Knit Night! A couple of weeks ago my husband took me to Asheville for a few days. It was just after SAFF. We stayed on a working sheep farm and visited at least 3 yarn shops. I tried to control myself, so I only got 4 skeins. 2 are already knit up into a cowl/shrug for me and the rest is a rust color mohair/wool local yarn that still doesn't have a definite pattern. It is bulky and I want to make another cowl/shrug for myself, but not the same pattern. Decisions, decisions.
The yarn sparkles! That combined with the texture of the yarn...Gerry, you may have just persuaded me to buy some indie yarn for the first time. That hat will look so festive (but not too festive, I like the yellow mixed in)
Yep! It sparkles. But not too much, just enough to catch your eye.This DK weight 75/20/5 Superfine SW Merino/Silk/Stellinaprovides stitch definition and is soft, soft, soft.When this yarn knit up it's more Autumn-like than Holiday. I love it all the more for it.GnomeAcres.com has a great talent for color and has great service.Stay warm and give kitty a treat from mehugs
Ican see why you fell in love with this yarn. It's going to make a terrific hat.
Love the sparkles, plus since it is a DK weightknits up in record time.hugs
I'm back in town. Beautiful colors of yarn. Love it!!
You're a regular OTR-type galKnit on!hugs
