Push is on...Holiday Knitting

The push is on for Holiday Knitting....I am
so bored with these socks...keep thinking I should
start something else, but the smart thing is to carry
on and get them done. The 2nd one has a good start.

Ruth's Picard sweater is coming along.  Rowan
felted tweed.  So nice!!

She needed a little distraction so is making
this hat.  Lacinato. Yarn is Anne Hanson's and Spirit Trail's.
Really nice...I love it!

Martha is zooming along on her sweater.
I think it is so cohesive..don't you?

In other news:

We hosted Thanksgiving this year.  My cousin
teases that the drive is so far she has to pack a lunch
for the trip.  She showed up with this bag:

The family had fun'

Got my sleigh filled with foilage on Small Business Saturday.
I love this....

KeeLe and I are going to watch Hallmark movies
and knit on the damn socks!

Have a great week!

Blustery in Nov

It is blustery here today. Friday, my car thermometer
said 73 and today it is 32...burrrrr... but a great day to knit!
Got the ends woven in and the socks blocked today.
This is two socks perfectly sized one on top of the other..

I love the way these turned out.

Turned the heel on the 1st sock, same pattern as above...
I love these colors....

Ruth is zooming along on her sweater:
soooo pretty!

Martha is also zooming along on her sweater.
She loves the colors this too!

She went to Webs and got some of her favorite yarn...

In other news....
yesteteday was very nice here.
What's important to note about these leaves is....
Joe/Joey had the yard cleaned 7 hour prior to this picture.
They have spent every night this week for 2-3 hours taking
care of this may leaves every night!

I think after today the last tree is almost done....

Joe went fishing yesterday and caught some nice perch.

What a difference a day makes, huh?
Can't even see the tress in the white out!

We are hosting Thanksgiving for the first time...wish me luck!
I'm quite nervous about the whole thing.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I'm thankful every day that
I have knitting to help me thru the stressful times....

Another Week Gone By

Another November week gone fast!
I did not get as much knitting done as I wanted to.
I guess that is pretty typical these days.

Finished up the 2nd gray sock. I still have to
weave in ends...  Love how it turned out.

 Started another pair in same pattern since my brain/fingers
are used to it.
Freza Sock yarn. Really nice...

Martha is moving along with her sweater.
She is ready to change the colors on the grey and yellow side.
needs to decide the next color change there.  On the yellow/green side
she has  to do another stipe of green then  change that color panel too.
It's much smaller on the smaller needles.
That wraps up another week....
Happy knitting.

Feels like November

It's November already..and it
feels like it. Though pretty warm...52 here today.
My week was very tiring at work so not as much
knitting as I'd like.I'm anxious to move on to something


Ruth started a sweater in Rowan felted tweed yarn.
Pattern is  Picard.....barely started, but oh so pretty!

Martha started her sock yarn sweater over on size 2 needle.
She is going to make colors   more solid or monochromatic, and
go from lighter shades to darker as I knit down. 

Joe, KeeLee and I took a ride to Silver  Lake today.
Pretty ride. The trees are mostly past peak, but it
was beautiful with the sun.

 Happy Knitting Season!
