I subscribed to a newsletter on Bustle and Sew a few months now and love it! I just had to share with those of you who are not already familiar with the blog.

How I learned to Knit Socks.


I imagine most of you are getting pretty tired of seeing my first pair of socks by now! But how else do I introduce three fantastic women who inspired me and kept me sane along the way!


Past, Present and Future - Update on Knitting my First Pair of Socks


Update on my goal to knit a pair of socks this year!


My introduction to sock knitting! A free on-line class with Mercedes at Kitchen Sink Dyeworks. I just had to make the pink pair (on the bottom left) to go along with the turquoise pair.


YAAAAY! My First Pair of Socks!

It is my goal this year to learn to knit socks!

Bumbles (The Abomidable Snow Monster )is thrilled with my very first pair.  I haven't the heart to tell him he won't get to keep them because they are destined for Children in Common.

I am almost literally floating on air I am so proud of myself! My sweetie is now convinced I have lost my mind - but I can't help myself!  This is a huge step toward my goal!

Eureka! My Table Loom Is Operational!

I bought myself a birthday present last year - a Rigid Heddle Loom made by Ashford Wheels and Looms, New Zealand. And then, I proceeded to spend the entire year finding "other things to keep me busy". Like this blog! That's it ... that's why I never got this loom put together. I'll blame it on the blog!
