Welcome Spring...or Baby It's Warm Out There

Well, this year certainly has not been blustery, stay in side and knit all
day long weather!!! But, I'll take it. I am so thankful I don't have to
drive in a snowy mushy mess.

A girl at work is expecting twin boys in February and I had decided
I would not knit her anything. I was really wiped out after all of the
Christmas knitting.

Then I saw a note that she didn't have very many
twin matchy matchy things. So Friday night I started
the blue hat, and Saturday I started the green hat.

I'm not thrilled with the colors in these pictures.

Yarn is my new favorite, Plymouth Select.
Size 7 Needles.

Pattern is my own - a helix strip pattern.
I love the way helix striping makes the colors just
pop - again these pictures do not capture the nice

Look up helix patterns and you will find a nice variety
to choose from. Most use three colors.

This size will probably fit them next fall..

Also, I am done with Clue 1 of the Through the Loops
Mystery sock pattern.

Clue 2 came out today, but I am much too tired to
think about it. Ruth and Martha say its very fiddly.

Ruth changed yarns today to a lighter color, and is
much happier with the results. Here is a picture
of a different sock she just finished.

Martha may decide to not do the leg pattern
and make her own - due to fiddleness.....

The blue is the mystery sock...she is doing two
at once. The red is creatively dyed...same skein...
weird..huh! Very pretty colors, just different.

Check out Martha's sweater - remember she designed
this on her own. It is now so pretty.

Martha I think you should come up with a really
special name for your sweater.....

This was clearly a lot of work, from the beginning
design stages to now.

Can't wait to see it all finished.

Not much new on the family front. All is well.

Have a nice, snow free week dear blog readers....
