Brittany, Grieving Loved Ones

everything changedSOURCE

* truth – every single relationship I have has changed. Some for the better. Some for the worse. Some I have let go of because I no longer have the time or energy to waste on negativity. My Sister’s passing has changed every aspect of my life. It has changed my relationships with my Mom, Step Dad, Husband, Children, Friends and extended family.

Gaint Socks

One more Christmas gift off of my list. I figured that it was about time that I knit my Hubby a pair of socks considering the fact that he buys me a lot of yarn. The problem is that he wont use anything that I make other than hats and I don’t want to waste my time making things that wont be put to use.  I admit that these were not the most fun thing that I have ever knit. I find that I like my socks bright and cheery and full of color and this knit was the complete opposite of that.


  • PATTERN: None – I just casted on 72 sts and made it up as I went – heel flap & gusset – rounded toe
  • STARTED: July 11th  – COMPLETED: Aug 14th
  • YARN: Knit Picks Bare! Stroll – hand dyed by myself
  • YARDAGE/WEIGHT: 287 yards or 62 grams
  • NEEDLES: 2.25 mm US Size 1
  • SIZE: 72 sts/Men’s 12

I hope that you all have a great weekend. Take care ❤ Missy

Kool – Aid Dyed Socks

  • FIBER CONTENT: 75% Wool – Merino – 25%  Nylon superwash
