Stitch Surfer Sox

Here they are.

Well, the first one up to the beginning of the heel.

Will watch Diane/Knitabulls video instruction to do the heel sometime tomorrow.


Is it winter, yet?

Grasshopper Cardi


The first sweat I've knit that actually fits me to perfection!

I wear it as often as I can.

Now that the Chambray is a finished project

Grasshopper can have every other day off. :-)

Finished sewing on the buttons

and have been wearing my new sweater

the past several days.

The weather has been pretty darn cold and

my Chambray Cardi sure is keeping me toasty warm.

I am so tickled that I've knit two sweaters that actually fits me.

Now am eager to cast on another

right away as soon as my Stitch Surfer sox are off the needle.

A new year begins

Do you ever find yourself caught up in the moment?

Becoming engrossed in an entertaining activity.

You know, something that stretches the brain,

Or that gets your creative juices flowing like lava down the mountain side?

No stopping it 'til the newness cools

Maybe it's the family circle that fulfills your days.
Time well-spent reminiscing, listening, appreciating, enjoying

The time passes so quickly . . . . .

That's the way this month has gone.

But now the Holiday Season celebrating has come to a slow-down,
Decorations are packed away
for another ten or so months [well, almost].
There's more or less time for life to fall into a routine that provides the time to center thoughts enough to plot a course for 2014.

That's the way it's been here.

My PASSION for knitting still very much occupies my thoughts and time.
Well, that and video chatting with family via Google+ Hangout and FaceTime.
How fun is that !!!!
One recent afternoon was spent knitting with my daughter on FaceTime.
How much more fun can it get?

Sweaters, sweaters.

Yes, my passion for knitting is almost entirely focused on knitting cardigan sweaters for me

The wonderful success with my green sweater,

Has provided me the confidence to chart my course for 2014.

Sweaters, Sweaters, Sweaters!!!!

My Grasshopper Cardigan is such a dream to wear.

I love it.

Very soon another cardi will be ready for its debut.

??? By the end of this week ???

These two quick triangle shawlettes finished just before the end of the year.

Aren't they cute?

So practical

what with the Polar Vortex.

2014 2014 2014 2014

Have a fantastic week!

10 pair of sox

6 shawls

3 cowls

1 pullover sweater

It has been snowin' and blowin' since late last night

Time for a cup of java
