Sport Socks

March Goals 

I'm sort of bummed out that I didn't complete all of my February craft goals because of all of the illnesses that went through our home. I didn't even start a book let alone finish reading one. I also ended up two hats short of my monthly goal and I didn't finish my socks for …

Daytona Day(s)

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 …

The First FO of the year

Ironically my first finished object of the year is Christmas gift for 2017. I started it on Christmas Eve.
