Free Pattern

Yesterday was my 49th birthday!

Did I get depressed?

Of course I didn't.

 I did complete a gift for all of you! A new sock pattern. A pair of lovely, lacey socks just for you. They are done toe up on 1 circular needle. I have to caution you that I nobody test the pattern. I also made them to fit my size 7 1/2 foot but included in brackets size M/L. I hope you enjoy them. I certainly enjoyed making them. The link can be found under  "Free Patterns" to the right. Here is a photo of the birthday socks to tempt you. Of course my boys had  to get in the picture.



Oh and Thanks to my darling DH for the gift certificates. Always appreciated.

Knit wits are some of my greatest pals.

Night Out

The Reads' group met Wednesday at Alto in Riverview for supper and it was quite lovely.Most of the group agreed to work on this fabulous calypso seafoam shrug from the book edited by Judith Durant "sock yarn one skein wonders". You can see some photos here .

I stash a few of my projects in a footstool in the living room and the other night didn't I go to take my sock project out and the lid came down and cracked my lovely Knit Pick needle right in 2! Well thankfully I have a spare and DH sanded the broken tip to a lovely point. Beware biting footstools. I am also working on a little shawl called Chevrolette by britt schmeising. I am using some of my red and white handspun.

Oh well that is all for now.
Be well

Trinity Shawl Complete

Hey everyone.

I actually completed the Trinity Shawl that I started in 2010 (blog date 05/17/2010).  Why did it take so long to finish? This is not a terribly complicated pattern but it is hard to finish things when the knitter (yours truly) has buried the project in a basket and doesn't find it again until she moves her hobby room. Doh! I used Briggs and Little's sport weight yarn colour Smoke. I used a border called Wide Tunisian Lace that differed from the border suggested by the pattern. The weight makes this an excellent cool weather shawl.

 So Knit in public Day on Saturday was wonderful and relaxing. Cricket Cove hosted a nice event at Chapters Starbucks. Thank you Cricket Cove. A reminder that  Cricket Cove's after hours knit group meets this Tuesday evening, June 14th starting at 6:30pm.

The Reads in Riverview group is meeting for supper at Alto in Riverview at 5:30pm on Wednesday, June 15th. Located between Curves and Subway.

I am working on a new pair of socks that I will be adding as a free pattern shortly. It is a wonderfully, stretchy lace pattern worked toe up on 1 circular needle. Look for that in the very near future.

So until Wednesday stay well.
