Little Things

Happy Mothers Day! I'm posting early as we have the
family coming over later.  Like knitting socks and hats and
mittens, it's the little things that add up for a mom.

Last week Joey took my picture with him.  His idea.
Tiffany called me this morning on her way to work to
say Happy Mothers Day.   For me, these little gestures
add up and make me so I don't really need
a special day to make that happen, I'm lucky enough to get it
all year long.

No knitting for me this week. Thank goodness Ruth
and Martha have something to share.

Ruth finished up her Roundabout socks.
(details in last week's blog)

I really like how the pattern and yarn go together!

Martha finished up some socks in Lorna's Laces Soulmate.(see details
in last blog post)....
and....she sent Ruth and I the same yarn so we can make some socks
and all wear to Rhinebeck.  THANKS AGAIN MARTHA !
Now I need to figure out what pattern I will use....

She started a new pair for her sister Susan. 
This yarn is by Ancient Arts, colorway is Abalone,
75% superwash and 25% nylon.  This pattern
is designed by her and was similar to Ann Budd's Mock Wave Cable Socks.
Her's are simpler.

Nice!!  Love the colors.

In other news...the boys have been Walleye fishing and look what Joey
caught on Friday night:

9.45 lbs
(excuse the messy taken in the mancave).

Have a great week.
