How wicked COOL is this

This weeks patterns

This week is all about warm, warm hands, warm feet and beating that nasty old draft that always seems to find the back of your neck.
Knitting Pattern: Wintergreen Gloves
Crochet Pattern: Ribbed Neck/Face Warmer
Socks: Glass Slipper Socks

I am almost finished with PB's hunting socks. I can't believe how long it has taken me to get one lousy pair of socks done. I guess throwing an extra sock at the end of a skein didn't help me get done any faster. But, alas I am almost to the toe decreases on the second sock.
I will post pictures of the 4 socks I have when I am done!

The Long Awaited Scarf Pattern

I know I promised like a month ago, but, dang if it doesn't get harder everyday to get those kids over here.

Side To Side Self Fringing Scarf
I thought it needed a nice long name since it took me so long to get it to you.
I hope you enjoy it. I would love to see pics if anyone knits it up!
God Bless

This weeks patterns

I have been knitting away, finally the dry spell is over. I knit 'the scarf' which, when I get one of those tall daughters of mine over here to  model it for me, I will get some pics and post the pattern here. And then started on some more of the No Show socks, winter is coming, and I need lots and lots of wool socks.
In between all of that, I have posted this weeks patterns:

Knitting: Angel Wine Bottle Cover
Crochet: Felted Door Knob Organizer
Socks: Diamond Lace Socks
I hope everyone is having a great weekend. It is beautiful here on the Gulf Coast. And it's BAYFEST in Mobile! We went last night and will be headed back again today, but don't you worry, we will be back home and in front of the t.v. in plenty of time to watch the Alabama/Florida game. Been waiting all week for this one!
God Bless everyone.

Getting back in the groove

It's been so long since I have wanted to knit anything.  I knit so many socks when I started knitting back in '99 that I was comp...
