Finally

I am finally getting started on finishing a pair of socks from about a year ago. I did the first one but as always with me I got sidetracked with another project and they ended up lonely in my knitting bag. The picture is badly out of focus sorry.





Facebook has become a bit of a daily obsession which I do not need but addiction is a hard thing lol. If you want to add me then there is a link thingy on the side bar

La Digitessa

I have finished the La Digitessa socks at last. I started them in December so it has been a long slog. It is a pattern that requires a lot of thinking and quiet time to get it right and has tons of charts.

Mr Sock Monkey

This pathetic attempt is Mr Sock Monkey that Max asked me to make....... errrm several months ago (hangs head in shame).

It had to wait for one reason or another and has been sat waiting for body parts since December. I got it out again on monday evening and he was ecstatic. A bit of a round about way to interpret the prompt but hey ho. Anyway I was about to start on the arms but Max wasn't having any of it. Apparently it doesn't need any arms and all it needed was some buttons for eyes. Who am I to argue with him? If he doesn't want it to have arms then I certainly aren't going to spend an evening making them. If it doesn't need facial features then fair enough.

Kind of reminds me of the needlework project I did at school. I made a doll. God it was crap - no wonder I failed the GCSE but I saved the doll. Jenna loved it when she was little and when it's leg fell off she just renamed it pegleg.

Snow Day

I took this last night when the snow was just starting.






This is at the park this morning.
We took both dogs but Daisy decided to tie us up in knots with her lead. It was her first snow experience and went crazy. Schools are closed today.
This is a picture of the snow last night with the orange street light.
