FYI ........... FO's and WIP's.

Alphabet soup there!!!

OK -- There 22 more days till Christmas and I'm feeling a little crunched but all-in-all, not too bad!

A few finished items to start things out. To me -- hand-knit socks are a true luxury. When your feet are warm and toasty, life is good.

And who deserves luxury more than my little granddaughter, Addie M??? So here are some of Addie M's new socks. No -- they don't fit .........yet. I'm knitting them various sizes. I start them and the socks tell me what size they want to be!! The pink and purple socks are knit from Dale of Norway Helio. The peach socks are knit from Baby Ull.

No -- I don't knit with acrylic. Anything!!! I know what sheep my yarn comes from .........what oil well does your acrylic come from????? Ok -- enough said on the sustainability of the yarn that I use. I'll leave my political beliefs at the door. (Like that will happen!!!!)

And here is pair number 4 --- Wait that is pair number 3.5! Another sock to knit. I love love love these!!!

In future sock news ............ pink rose bud socks!! Youngest Daughter will have something to say about that!

Another project on the needles is the palidrome scarf. I love love love this pattern. Someone -- maybe Kristen -- was a genius!! Totally reversible cable scarf! And easy enough for a 3rd grader to do............. knit 2, purl 2, knit 2, purl 2. Super easy!!!

Now one project that is not started (but I have bought the yarn!) is the fingerless gloves from Knitty ........... Fetching. I know. I know. I am truly the last person in the world to knit these!! But won't the purple look great with the scarf?? What do you think, Eldest Daughter????

Too many projects -- too much to do. I have bread rising now and I need to make a batch of granola. Date-pecan today. I hope to make Cherry-Almond granola tomorrow for more gifts.

This is the time of year, there aren't enough hours in the day. I seem to be working my fingers to the bones --- can't say much about my butt!

The "palindrome" scarf is on my to-do list - REVERSIBLE CABLES how cool, right? Yours is GORGEOUS!!! Thanks for the eye-candy! :)
I think I've finally found the pattern for my "tutorial yarn"! A friend gifted me with lots of samples of different fibers (like 13!) when I was first learning to spin. I spun them all strung together, alternating light and dark fibers. Didn't know what to make of it, but I think the Palindrome is it! Thanks!

A hobby! That's what I need ..... a hobby!!! But where would I find one????

Something other than shoveling snow!
Yuck!!!

You don't like shoveling snow? I like shoveling snow and doing dishes. It is a mystery how I am still single!

I love the gloves!!! I thought about them on the train this morning, have you ever thought about leg warmers? I could've used those today too! Black of course, in case you wondering. (cough, hint, cough)

Oooooh --- I know I saw an incredible pattern for leg warmers!! Michelle -- did you have a great pattern linked to your site???

Glad you like it -- the scarf will be done today and I will start the gloves ASAP! Leg warmers will be down the list a little~
Oh yeah, GORGEOUS ones! Go to this post: http://boulderneigh.blogspot.com/2008/10/all-kinds-of-excitement.html

I think you have to sign up to get Knitting Daily's free patterns, and some of them are only available for a limited time. But the post also gives the name of the book the pattern is in. Knit on!

Whoever she may be! (cough, hint, cough!)
