So, it's not my new socks that are keeping my feet warm right now, it's the little rascal sitting on them. She's talking to "Cindawella" on her cell phone (sigh). Here is a picture of the 2 skeins that I dyed the other nght. I might use them for my first pair of lace socks, we'll see- I have 8 more skeins drying at home. I guess it's time to I admit that I like purple. I can't quite admit that I love it just yet. I don't know what it is, I think of the smell of cough syrup, the kind that my mom used to make me take as a kid, it creeps up on me when I see purple- well certain shades I guess. Anyhooo, today, I ordered Lorna's Laces, sock and worsted. I haven't picked a pattern for my next pair yet, any suggestions? Cookie A's sock patterns are always a hit, I'll have to check them out a little later. I love her pictures on Knitty, they're so wacky.
On another note, I wanted to post my "Clover Fan Jacket" from Loop-d-Loop crochet. The pattern is pretty easy for those who are interested in starting it. It called for 10 skeins of Blue Sky's cotton, however I only used 8 for the small size- here it is. It fits great, and it's the perfect jacket throw on in the fall. Hope you like it...


  1. Love the jackett, now how about a picture with you in it :)

  2. I just love the picture of my Scarlett! Justine's store is a wonderful place to go and google and feel all her yarn. We are so very proud of her and her accomplishments. Carol Cypher was a love and inspired us all! moodyblues1967
