Thankful Thursday

Spring is Just 37 days away by the calendar - what better to be thankful for?

So, I owe you all a post of what I've been up to.


Well for starters I've been making some stitch markers. I found markers were very necessary when making the BSJ by EZ.

This is a pair of socks done by request. Lorna's Laces, Denim - really liked the striping. Tried a 3 x 1 ribbing on the top of the foot and plain stockinette on bottom, short row toe and heal.





Not sure how these pics are going to fall, so you will just have to follow along. I actually worked on some sewing lately (a very small amount) and finnished this valentine hanging PRIOR to Valentines Day!





The sweater is my first ever! I found a quick crochet pattern which wasn't too bad. The only problem is that I forgot that while I knit pretty true to guage I don't crochet anywhere close to guage. Outtake is this is too small for me, but does fit my daughter nicely... not that she'd ever be caught in it. I am encouraged though to try another sweater here in the near future

Lastly, my January STR in Dragon Dance. This is what got me started on the whole "Puff" thing. Puff was the special word inside my ball band. These started out for Josh, but his feet are now mans feet so I will shortly be starting another yarn in this pattern. I told him that the pattern was of dragon scales, a very manly thing instead of the lace it truely is. He's happy!

And if there are misspellings, I apologize... I figured out the linky thing and somehow disabeled my spell check.

Happy Spring Thoughts - Karrie

Love the stripes in the socks! Very neat.

You know, my spell check doesn't work either, so perhaps it's Blogger's fault!

Lovely socks, especially the denim. I agree, the striping is really nice!

I like seeing all your finished objects--great work!

You know what's funny? I totally didn't use stitch markers for the BSJ--but I should have! It would have made it soooo much easier...

Wow, you've been busy! Great FOs!

I seem to have lost half of my stitch markers and really should make some more. I just don't enjoy working with beads that much...

WOW! Look at all you've been up to! I feel like a bum. Ah, well. One of these days I'll get to my Dragon socks.
