Off and on the needles for another week

Another week and another sock has been knitted, making this a finished pair.

The yarn is Lorna's Laces In the Wind. I think I got this at The Loopy Ewe but its not on their site at the moment. These socks feel great... I finished them last night and I'm wearing them today.

And to again reward myself for finishing a pair of socks I cast on another pair. This time it is that new Jarbo Mini Ragg I got at Knit On in Newport Kentucky.

I cast on 60 stitches and I'm doing a K3 P2 ribbed leg. I can't wait to get into the lime-y green and hot pink parts of this yarn.

And speaking of finishing things up, Cindy of Tops to Treasures sent me this.... very funny!

Well it is a rainy day here and they are calling for a rainy weekend. Perhaps staying inside will get more of my Christmas decorating done. I gave up on trying to fix the burned out lights on the tree. I'm just going to throw another strand on in that section. I know if a bulb is missing the whole strand goes out but I didn't find any missing bulbs. And pulling each one out and replacing it with a bulb I knew worked only succeeded in making my fingers sore. I figure I spent over almost 2 hours on this and I'd like to have that time back to spend more productively on, oh I don't know... quilting, knitting, cross stitching, sleeping... something worthwhile.

Hope you have a lovely weekend!
Happy stitching-

  1. Love the colors on the Lorna Lace socks!

  2. I am soooo happy that you made that pretty sock her mate!!! was worried you might not do it!!!!
    my spent time today--that I wished I was sewing, knitting, something was on here trying to access one of my email accounts!!! so if it is not one thing it is another--if I did not enjoy reading blog sites and doing mine--I would not have a computer!! Oh wait and then there is all the internet buying!!!!!!
    Hugs,Di and miss gracie

  3. beautiful socks can't wait to see how the color will work on second pair

  4. Love those colorful socks! Who'd guess that the socks you have started come from the lime green/pink ball shown!

  5. The socks are just wonderful! I couldn't agree more. Sometimes the time it takes to fix something just isn't worth it. My DH loves to try to find out why we are having a problem on the computer. I say turn it off and we'll try to fix it later!

  6. Pretty socks!

    You left out EATING from your more productive endeavors :)

    P.S. Whatever funny thing you were trying to link to is not working!

  7. Waiting, waiting, waiting, for the weather to get cold enough to break out my wooly socks!


Thanks for stopping by. I really enjoy reading your comments. They make my day!
