Knitting on New Years Eve better than a drink anyday

Tonight many people are toasting in the New Year, as for me it will be with Dick Clark and Jimmie Dale. Oh and a set of knitting needles and yarn. Now that's what I call bliss. Did I forget a fire in the fireplace with the dog on her bed. I feel blessed in so many ways.
Good bye old year, welcome in New.

year end......resolutions

Well another year is almost to the close, projects mostly completed. A few to finish. A great year of learning. I could not of asked for a better time in Washington. What a blessing each and every knitter was to me. I am inspired, rejuvenated and looking forward to growing more and more. I am looking forward to Stitches West, Jon will have a booth and introduce his wares to the knitters of the west coast. How exciting !!! Life is good, friends and family are close and dear.
Now to begin................................another project

The knitter's Crunch

With Christmas around the corner it's time to knit, knit, knit----that's what I am doing. The only problem is the tree isn't up, the BIG question is will it get up????? I just can't seem to get it together. This is the first year I have felt this way. I ming is a confusion of knit purl and yarn overs.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Yep the sock is done, not perfect, but DONE. Now to do the mate. The heel ended up to be done in a kitchner stitch with a mistake or two. Not to fear it is done and will not be frogged again EVER !!!!
To be continued on the other foot.

Yipes !!!

To heel or not to heel

Froggin again and again, don't know if this purple sock will ever be complete. Perhaps it's time to begin a new pair...............and then the purple haze will just remain a haze---- to be a "work of art", a memory of fun at the lake. Perhaps this is all a dream from the hoze zone. Well another day knit one purl two.

p.s. SK2P is slip one, knit2, pass slip stitch over !!! yeeeeha....................

Sock it to me

Today is the day for froggin, took out the heel of me purple haze sock and will hopefully recreate it tomorrow. Working on preemie hats for S.F. Kaiser nursery. I love the "Tiny preemie short row hat" very portable and nothing to remember. Wish I could sit and knit all day long. Work is becoming stressful and I have decided to take a day each week to devote to what "I" need,, wether it's to do laundry, create or sleep. I've got to do that or I think I will go nuts.

jeepers perhaps I already am, nuts that

knitters block or am i stuck in a wad of yarn??

I have so much I want to do, but no time to do it. I need to have a notebook near for when ideas come to my mind. Wish the computer was with me all the time. Ideas for knitting and now I am starting to get new thoughts about how to design stitches. Never thought i'd look in that direction.

endless in purple haze

So now it's done the purple sock is complete. too big, but complete. Now to determine where to adjust and rip or live with it......................I will think on this some more. Perhaps I will keep it as the "lone sock" a work of art, a reflection, a strange coaster. Who knows.
To be continued....................

Where is it??

Seems like it's "overload" so much to little time. Perhaps I will take up knitting in my sleep. Need to organize everything. Hopefully I will learn more on "Ravelry" and get it together.

Wow Mac n Me

This knitting retreat is also a Mac adventure. I have met the most wonderful computer teacher, Miss Ana and she is patient and kind showing me how to work the Mac and knit. I hope to go to So Calif and take a class for a sweater sometime in the future.
I am now an official blogger and at some point I will share the story of "hotmail" to the world.


Having a wonderful time
