RAINY DAY...........

So i'm off to the Casino in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for a little poker playing.
i know this has nothing to do with knitting, but i thought i'd mention it anyway.
I'm going to gather up some of the things i've knitted while i was away from blogging. Mostly socks, (of course)
so if your interested come on back in a few days to see.

One of the reasons I'm glad to be back to blogging is the fact that blogging is a wonderful way to journal your knitting project.
this pair i found so easy, yes, I did do some swearing do to many mistakes. But that's just me.
The first sock of the pair was finished Feb.21,2009. The reason I remember that is cause that is the day my husband said he was going out for the mail. I said wait let me show you the sock. So I have the finished sock on on foot and the other foot has a different sock on and that is how i spent that evening in the hospital. Cause.................

It was snowing that day, so i followed my husband after a few minutes to make sure he wasn't shoveling. Well yes he did try to shovel and had a heart attack. called 911 and a day later he had open heart surgery. 6 by-pass, yes I did say 6, and a new valve.
And that is the reason it took so long for the other sock to get done.
My husband is recovering nicely, Lucky man to say the least.
The pattern is an easy one. Kaffe Fassett Socks i found on the internet. I used 2 skeins of Regia 4-fach haltbar in crazy color.
I used size 2 DPN's.
Now i'm starting another pair same pattern different color yarn.

July 17, 2007..........

That was the date that I bought this book. I just love knit toys and I thought these dolls were so very cute..
So did I knit any dolls yet? Of course I didn't. What is my excuse? I don't have one.
Hopefully one of these days i'll finish the socks that I have on needles and start these cute dolls.
You know I'll post a picture if and when that day ever comes.
Stay tuned.
I just wanted to post a better picture of the nice gift i received from my friend Jackie.
It's a real nice, as you can see, purse by PERLLINI. I'm putting it to good use, and enjoying it very much.
Again, a big thank you to Jackie.
The other picture was taken using photo booth a mac application.

It's been so long...................

since i've posted anything. I'm not sure if i even know how to upload a photo or get anything highlighted, but i'll try and get back into the swing of it.
Knitting has been somewhat horrible, I have 5 pair of socks waiting to be picked up and fixed. Either i dropped stitches while doing a pattern and just can't frog it, or i've dropped so many stitches (pulling out the wrong needle) or something dumb happened.

Anyway there are a few people I miss, and you know who you are, so i'm going to blog again, or give it a try.
Jackie, thanks again for your very thoughtful and wonderful gift. I am using it and enjoying it.
