Checking in

How's was everyone's holiday? Mine was wonderful. We got a new bed and next month we are off to Vegas to visit with family. Vegas Baby!! Gene wants to go to Gold and Silver Pawn, to see the people from Pawn Stars.

In knitting news. Margot is done. Here is a picture just before I finished the 2nd sleeve.

I was also in a swap on Ravelry. My gift was from Laura or Lala from the Knitgirllls podcast. She really spoiled me.


My goal in 2011 is to be a better blogger.

Recent Socks

2010 has started out as the year of socks for me. I have been on a sock kick, all socks all the time. I have already completed 4 pairs and I should finish my 5 pair tonight. Here are what I have completed this year.
The first is the Sunday Swing Socks from Knitty in Oceanwind Knits Merino in the color "Blu". I know this yarn was one of the The Loopy Ewe sock of the month club yarns but I really don't remember which month it was from.

The next sock is the Roger sock from Anne Hanson. The color is Oasis from Tempted Yarns 3am club. The yarn is Lil' Luxe Girl and I have to tell you this yarn is YUMMY to work with. This is my first year in the club and I am have to wonder why I didn't sign up before. Never mind the 2 other sock clubs that I'm in. Yes, this make 3 sock clubs this year. Please don't tell my husband.

The other 2 finish's are both yarns from The Rockin' Sock club from Blue Moon. This is my 4 year in the club and I love it. The first sock is Cascadia in the colorway "Happy Go Lucky". This is the Jan 2010 shipment.

The other sock is the Cleopatra sock from the May 2008 club shipment.
