Happy New Year!  It has been far too long since I have posted.  I have been trying to post for a while, but every time I would try to post, I could not attach any pictures!  Now, how likes to read a post without at lease SOME pictures!  So, at first I just did not post, but blogger is still having the same issue, so I am trying to post via Chrome now.

I finished those socks for a friend:

And I FINALLY finished a pair of socks for my daughter's best friend.  They were challenging, but the final outcome is so worth it!

My Lazy Girl KAL is coming along....and the MOST EXCITING thing ever happened.  So, I have the San Antonio Stitch N Bitch Group as a Ravelry Group and we have a couple of forums going on (our members are not the biggest ravelry users, but I am working on trying to change it).  In the forum for the Lazy Girl Kal....the designer herself (Megan Peters) was cyber spying on us and is thrilled we chose her pattern for the KAL....I am thrilled she was cyber spying on her.  She said her yarn store (Yellow House Yarns) would like to donate some prizes.....HOW EXCITING IS THAT?  I am just tickled about it!

Here is the Lazy Girl progress:

I also cast on for two pairs of socks.  The Yellow Pair is a KAL with Michelle Hunter called Crimple, I am making them Yellow because they will also count as my entry in the Solid Socks group on Ravelry for my January Sock (January color is Yellow). 

Then, here is January's sock for Sock Knitters Anonymous group....this is my Flying Saucer yarn I have been dying to use!  I am loving the way it is working up.

I had a lot of people ask me about the things on my balls of yarn.  They are Yarn Cozy's.  My friend got them for me at our LYS, but you can get them on Amazon Here.  I have been referring a lot of people to get them here....I wish Buffy Ann's designs would give me a free set or two for all the!

Lastly, I leave you with a cute picture I found on facebook.

Happy Thursday everyone!


  1. So cool on the prize donation! One of these days soon I will have my knitting life together enough to do a kal. And I pledge to do my part to liven up the ravelry page!

  2. love all of your socks..and especially am keeping an eye out on your progress onthe shawl...really love your "color" choices...haha surprise orange...but REALLY love the way this is looking!

  3. Loving your socks! I have not been brave enough to ever do sock (which is what I'm afraid it would be!) ha ha

    I have an old gumball machine. I should dig that thing out! That's cute as can be!
