Sock knitting

I finished a pair of socks for Aric. They were made of Interlacements Toasty Toes on size 3 Addi Turbo needles.

That left me only Dad's Aran cardigan to work on, and I can't haul that around easily. What to do, but knit another pair of socks? Providentially for me, Penny and Meg had wanted to check out my new Knit Picks size 2 circular needles while I was in Virginia last weekend, so I cast on blue Opal sock yarn and they both knit a round of k2 p2 as the start of sock ribbing. Now I am well into a pair of Auburn socks for Jacy. On one sock the ribbing, heel, and toe will be blue, and the rest of the sock will be orange. The other sock will have ribbing, heel, and toe of orange with the rest of the sock in blue. Because I'll have enough left of each yarn to knit another pair of similar socks, I told Kim I'd knit a pair of Auburn socks for her, too, and she promised to wear them!

Beautiful color! I love seeing what you have worked on, because I absolutely do not knit or crochet!
My grandma taught me the basics, but I never had the desire...until now! I'm just starting to feel the urge to pick up the needles and get a refresher course. ( this a sign of getting older? Hope not!)

Hello, Mrs. Dowling!

My siblings and I have blogs, and my mom tries to blog. Her blog address is

It hasn't been updated in quite awhile, but you might like to see the pictures of our schoolroom and the built in book cases that Mom ordered. It was a must. We had books stacked on top of books too. :)

I hope that we will see y'all soon!
