More socks- Day 4

These are my Fire Socks.  They have been in what I call the "dead sock" pile for awhile.  Shortly after knitting them I wore a hole thru the heel but had no clue how to darn them.  Well I got ambitious this weekend and google sock darning.  So here is my handy work.  Not perfect but wearable and practice makes perfect.  I did a few other pairs and am thrilled to be able to wear these "dead" socks again.  More to come!

Day 3

These are the socks I wore today.  I can tell you nothing about them.  I'm sure they're wool.  I'm sure they're from sensational knit socks.  They're blue and warm.  That's all I got for ya!

Day 2

Welcome to day 2! I thought it would be easier to blog daily but I am finding that it is not. There are just not enough hours in the day. I'm afraid this is all going to be rambling with no specific order, rhyme or reason. A composition of editing and adding on my phone and re editing on the computer. Ahh well, whatever works right!  These socks are my super green socks.  I wish I could remember what the yarn is off the top of my head.  I'm sure I have it somewhere.  Maybe raverly...  Here we go! These socks make me think of my Grandma.  I knit these while she was in hospice.   I love these socks because they are loud and comfy.

These are my latest socks that I am loving knitting so far!  More info here.  I'm getting close to wrapping up the first sock already!

Hey Hey, who' s that, that just learned how to knit and joined me for a knitting session this weekend.  Why yes it is Tara holding her first washcloth.

Betsy and Jen were there as well. 
We caused quite a sensation at Caribou, knitting.  Geez you'd think that nobody ever saw 4 hot woman knitting in a coffee shop before.

Day 1 - sock of the day

Well here I am thinking about blogging again...  Last night I read thru some of my old blogs and thought maybe it was time to pick up my journal of life and knitting and start again.  I rarely knit over the past three years and did not blog.  With Facebook and Texting the blog went t o the wayside.  I'm sure most of my Facebook friends could care less about my knitting and what not so I'm going to give jotting it all down here a shot again.  Some posts, like this one, will come from my phone so please excuse my typos :).  I thought I might get back in the swing of blogging by posting my daily socks.

Todays socks are the jitterbug socks.  I think I bought this yarn in TN or finished them in TN because that's what they kind of remind me of.
