Slow Sunday Stitchin' a Day Late . . .

In December on Facebook, a yearlong sock Knit From Stash KAL (Knit-a-Long) was offred and since I have been trying to learn to make socks, I deiced this might be a good time for me to learn and actually get some socks made.

The January sock is Feldspar and the KAL is hosted by Heather Walker from Yarn Yenta.  Heather is also the designer of the sock patterns.

So here is how far I have completed on Feldspar ~

With all the frogging, I think the leg part only took me about 5-6 hours!!  Will I get better as the year goes on?  We will see!!

P.S.  Hey Carol, over at The Polka Dot Chicken, lookie, lookie, I am really getting a sock done!!  Well, that's the plan anyway!!

Snow Day!!

Remember when we were kids and the best thing in the world was a snow day?  We got to stay home and play and bug our moms and just have a good old time!!

Well, today is a snow day here!!  We have had over 12 inches of snow since last night and it is STILL snowing!!

This is our darling 90 year old neighbor out with his snow blower cleaning all the neighbors' walks and driveways!!

These are the huge piles of snow that will remain probably for many weeks, if not months!!  So much for global warming!!  ;-0

And I am in the house, toasty warm and working on a quilt top!!  With a cup of hot chocolate!!

Christmas Elves

This is my brother and me so states the creator of these darling little elves!!  Since the yellow one has a fatter face, I deemed that one was me and the one in blue, is of course my brother.  Get it - blue = boy!!

Are they darling or what?  They make up the Christmas Tree so much more festive!!  Thank you LuAnn!!

Slow Sunday Night Stitchin' . . .

A sweet friend of mine saw a gorgeous sweather on an email from this yarn shop we follow in New York City: Soho Yarns.  Well, she is a new knitter and thought it was beyond her ability so she emailed me and asked me if I thought one of the gals down at our local yarn shop would knit it for her if she paid them!!  I emailed her back and said: "I'll make it for you just for the pleasure of working with that gorgeous yarn!!"  So, she is letting me!!  YAY!!

Here is a picture of the sweater ~

Here is the yarn she chose (different from the yarn called for): Madelinetosh - Tosh Sport Yarn in Calligraphy ~

And this is how far I have completed - about 4".  What is so cool about this pattern is that there are NO seams!!  And, yup, the yarn has a wonderful hand and works up sooooo beautifully.  And the wooden needles are so fun to work with!!

I am linking up with Slow sunday Stitching over at Kathy's Quilts - go check out what everyone else is working on!!
