Thank You!!

Good Morning Knitters,

First off, I have to say a HUGE thank you to all of you who have commented on my 100th Post Giveaway! You are all so kind! I never even realized so many of you were reading my blog. THANK YOU!!

On another note, I'd like to explain why I haven't posted in so long. My Mom and I have been cleaning out the bush around our place for the last week or so, and each day by the time we come in I'm usually so tired that I just don't have the energy to come online. We're finally getting very close to finishing it though, so I'm hoping that I'll be around more often!

I have been working on a little bit of knitting. It isn't anything too fancy, just very simple since by the end of the day, I can only do something easy. It's my first ever toe-up sock. I wanted to do them this way because I have to skeins of yarn and I wanted to be able to use them both up and make long, warm socks. I've got one partly done so far. I found doing the heel a bit tricky, but I think I figured it out. I'm basically making my own pattern as I go. I seem to have a little bit of trouble sticking to sock patterns...I like to experiment with them.

Oh, I should also mention that the new Knit Picks Felici fingering and sport weights yarns are out! (Although I'm so late in posting this, I'm sure everyone already knows about it, but on the off chance that at least one of you does not, I thought I should say that) I placed an order on Tuesday morning, and it shipped the same day! I'm very excited to see the new colours, and the yarn. I've never worked with Felici, but I've heard so many good things about it. The new sport weight will be nice because it will work up faster (which I always like) and be a bit warmer and squishy on my feet. :-)

Well, I'm off to do a little more clean-up outside. I hope you all have a wonderful day!!

Happy Knitting!!


  1. Wow... you did your toe up socks without a pattern? I'm super-duper impressed!

  2. Well I've looked up information on how to do the toe and the heel and such, but I've been doing my own stitch count and working it around the basics to make it all fit right. I couldn't have figured it out without looking up how to do the basics though for sure! I knew what I wanted my socks to look like in my mind, but I couldn't find a pattern that was exactly that. :-)
