A Winter Storm is RAGING here!!

According to the newscasters here, it is supposed to be ugly freezing rain/sleet mix all weekend. Which is fine with me because I can use the weekend to knit!! Above is one finished sock for me from Pippikneesocks, the chop wood carry water yarn. Lovely stuff! It was my first time ordering from her and I am so loving the colors. So much so, that I have not gotten the dreaded second sock syndrome and actually caston for the next sock last night. A miracle for me. I will be ordereing more from her in the future when the budget allows.

Below, is the dishcloth that Sirena got done this last week. She is completely hooked on the knitting now, and I could not be happier. I now have a buddy that can come over to knit with me. Our mother daughter relationship has taken a turn for the better. Not that it was bad or anything, but I now get to see her more often and actually share a hobby with her that I am totally obsessed with. She wants to make a skirt she saw in teh Vogue knitting magazine this last summer. I am impressed that she is willing to tackle some harder more challenging projects so soon.

That is it for now, I need to get back to that second sock. Oh yeah, I have not stopped working on the sweater. I got both sleeves done and attached to the body of the sweater. I am ready to begin the fun part now and start knitting the design in the yoke area. I was just not into having to use my brain and knit with both hands today so instead will try and conquer this second sock today instead.

For now, keep on knitting!!
