On The Needles, Jan. 16, 2015

On the needles is a pair of crazy (leftovers) socks. I have tons of little leftover balls of sock yarn, so I'm planning to make a pair for each of my three 13 yr. old granddaughters.

On the needles, Jan.09,2015

Well, the holidays have come and gone. We had a great visit with my mom and dad in Ontario. We also got to see both of my brothers, my uncle Brian, and my Aunt Betty. The weather was perfect for travelling. We got home just before the extreme cold spell, and now we are getting snow. Just before Christmas, I got a petit point picture back from the framers. It was stitched at least 20 years ago, so it was about time it came out of the closet!

As far as knitting, a few things are on the needles. A pair of socks for our daughters birthday later this month.
Amanda's Birthday socks
A pair of heavy socks for hubby. My aunt gifted me with a box full of roving and another box full of Briggs and Little wool yarn, so I need to make lots of heavy socks, thrum mittens, thrum slippers, etc. These were going to be for me, but Dale took one look at the color and fell in love, so they will be for him!

Our dog Lacey has a hard time staying warm in the cold weather, so I made her a snuggle blanket.

My first 2 pairs of thrum mittens were finished in December. I'm hoping to make many pairs and maybe sell them at our local craft fair next November.
