My version of a Taggie or Huggie

I have been wanting to make one of these for a while now... today I did. It is 12 in x 12 in not including the ribbon. I used pink satin for the back and a very soft blanket material for the front. I used my Futura for both the embroidery and the sewing.

Sock Worthy

I decided that my 10 month old grand daughter is totally worthy of hand knitted socks. I started these Saturday night and finished them tonight. I think I'm really going to like making socks.

Sock Two Finished

Finally.... I'm finished.

And I almost matched the stripes. I knitted a wee bit tighter on the second sock. I'm happy with the results. My next pair will be anklets made with Fixation.

Second Week Homework!

Homework Finished. Tomorrow I learn the toe. I can tell that this sock is going to be too big. But no problems at all. I have already started the second sock. I had wanted to get as far as the heel with it before my class but, its not gonna happen. One good thing about my LYS is that I can go back anytime I have troubles and they will help... Good thing, I bet I will be needing them!

My little hat

I finished my hat with a three needle cast off. It suppose to be for an infant, but it looks like it would fit a 1 year old! I'll try it on my 8 month old grand daughter tomorrow!

Heel flaps, short rows and gussets...Oh My

OK, heel turned. I'm just finishing my decreases and then to the toe. Next week I learn to finish the toe... Then I just have to make another one!

On My Needles

I'm working on a hat, too. Its called "snowflake" but I don't think I will embroidery the snowflakes. Its just a simple little hat that ties in a bow on the top. I'll try to have it finished this weekend.

Homework Done!

I finished my sock homework. I did the ribbing for about 2 inches with a total length of 7 inches. I'm ready to start the heal! I can't wait for tomorrows class.

My First Sock

I started my sock! I had a great time in class at my LYS... well, not really a class. I was the only student! Just means I had all the attention. I am glad I taking this class. I'm going to learn the tricks. I'm using Regia 4 ply with size 2 needles.The color is Jacquard. Can't give you more information on the yarn cuz it's in German. I am a big lady so I cast on 60 and am doing the ribbing with k2, p1. For home work I sould have 6-7 inches done my next Friday. It's fun!

The picture shows what I did in class. Not much for two hours but the needles are small and the yarn is too! There is a learning curve!

I'm excited!

Friday Morning I take my sock class! Sounds funny if your not in the hand knitted sock world, but I am excited. I want to learn the basics so I can start to make the many beautiful socks I have seen on my "Hand Knitted Sock" group. I'll let you know how it goes :)
