Hello All! Wow! Summer has arrived! It has been so hot and dry these last few weeks.

Melted Crayon Socks 

Wow! I love how these socks turned out. This is the last skein of my anniversary yarn. It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to knit with it. I think that they make great cheery socks. The ribbing that I added makes them extra soft and squishy.  RAVELRY NOTES RECIPIENT: me… Continue reading Melted Crayon Socks

March Socks

These are from some yarn that I dyed last year some time. It was one of my first experiments with using multiple colors and I wasn't too sure how I was going to like it knit up. However, am really pleased with the results but I didn't think there was enough purple in the yarn… Continue reading March Socks

Ugly Ankle Socks

I managed to knit a pair of socks with some yarn that didn't quite turn out the way I had wanted it too. I figure that ankle socks to wear a round the house will be a perfect use for yarns that I am not totally satisfied with. I also knit a little mini sock… Continue reading Ugly Ankle Socks

My First Wendy Sky Shawl

When I first heard about the Wendy Sky Shawl I knew that I had to make one in colors that my Sissy Brittany would have liked. Wendy's Sister Debby designed the pattern in her memory and 20% of the all pattern sales will be donated to the San Diego School District’s Program for hearing impaired and deaf children. What… Continue reading My First Wendy Sky Shawl

Lafayette Shawl
