FO pickies at last

To the right is a pickie of my new yarn that I took possession of from the lovely Katt at S'n'B on Tuesday. It came from Sockmonster who sells lovely sock yarn. Drop on by and she may have something that would interest you.

Below is a pickie of the "Jaywalking" socks that I have knit using Opal Lollypop sock yarn. These socks are for myself as I have totally given up on bought socks. They are not worth buying when I put holes in the toes after only about 3 or 4 wears.

This is a pickie of the 3 ply baby jumper that I knit in just over 3 days. It is made from Cleckheaton Baby Soft yarn that is really soft and lovely to knit with.
This jumper is for Jayden Samuel who was born on Sunday morning.

At the moment I am knitting the baby shawl that I started to knit a few months ago. It is coming along beautifully. A few months back I knit the 1st section and at the moment I am knitting the 2nd section. It will look lovely when it is finally finished.

On Wednesday I started knitting a sock from some of my new & wonderfully soft Trekking sock yarn. I finished the 1st sock and then thought I had better get back on with the shawl but I can't wait to get the other sock done. They look really nice and feel soooooooooooooooo soft.

Until next time keep on knitting.

I have just been checking out the Woolly Warbler's blog and had a good chuckle at a few delightful gnomes that she has made. They are naughty little critters that get up to no good.

Today I went to the local S'n'B gathering of the Coven and we had a great time knitting, chatting and I collected my sock yarn that had just arrived from the Sockmonster. She has her own on line shop called sockmonster sales where she has some wonderful sock yarns.

I got 2 balls of Regia, 2 balls of Trekking and also 2 balls of Lorna's Laces. Woohoo a sock knitting we will go.

On the knitting front I have completed my Jaywalking socks, a 4 ply baby singlet and a 3 ply baby jumper. I will have to post pickies when they are uploaded to my pc.

The baby jumper I knit in just over 3 days and it looks beautiful and hopefully the recipient will be very happy with it.

My friend had a little baby boy on Sunday morning even though I only got the phone call when I arrived home this evening. This was a long waited for child that will be well loved by his sister who is 3 1/2 yrs old. Welcome little Jayden Samuel.

Until next time keep on knitting.

How much is your blog worth?

My blog is worth $4,516.32.
How much is your blog worth?

I found this little quiz on ttbookjunkie's blog. Thanks Amanda.

The clicky link on the quiz doesn't work so here's the clicky that works.

Until next time keep on knitting.


Why, why, why????????

While cruising my regular reads I had a look on the Knit 'n' Bitch blog and clicked onto a limk that she'd found and wondered where do people get their ideas from and why do they even bother making some of their weird creations.

I went to the local S'n'B yesterday and had a great time. There was lots of yarn to fondle and plenty of completed and UFO's to be looked at.

Suzi & I bought Cindy a lovely (sic) mug at the City Mission shop that was along the hall from where we had our get together.

The elephant made an appearance as did the jaywalking socks that I have finished. (Pickies of jaywalking socks is in the camera but is yet to be downloaded.)

After Miss 3 had been to dance class today I went to Rivers at Kings Meadows and bought myself a new pair of really soft sandals. Cindy they even had a dark green pair and they were only $19.95 a pair.

Well it's time to get about 3, read that THREE kids to bed.

Until next time keep on knitting.
