socks for grandmother

Originally uploaded by tishknits
I have been knitting on these lovely socks for MONTHS ! Not that a pair of socks takes that long...... I have just had so many other beautiful things pull me away from these. Alas they are almost done ! I am hoping to have them in the mail and on the way to Louisiana by Monday. XX Fingers crossed. Hopefully nothing else will tempt me away :)

Newest Spinning

Originally uploaded by tishknits
Last night I spent the evening with my lovely friends spinning and talking. Nothing like a night with the girls and yarn. I learned how to use my lace flyer ! As you can see in the picture I picked up on it and WOOHOO I am loving making lace weight yarn! It is so delicate and beautiful. I thought I would only be able to make delicate yarn on my spindle. At this rate I will have a hank of lace weight yarn to show soon :)

Tuesday is knit night !!!

I love Tuesdays. It is the day were I get to leave all my worries behind me and focus on laughing with my friends. Tonight was a great night we laughed, we shared and we even did some shopping. I believe the newest Debbie Bliss magazine was bought as well as the 2 at a time socks book. I am very excited about that.

Life is good !

Love finding hidden gems online

this particular "hidden gem" is called Hidden Purls. A great website to buy amazing yarns. Everything from Louet to Rowen. I foresee a big yarn purchase in my future. He is the link.
