Well helloooooooo.....

I confess, no pictures today.... but I am already on the second sock in that colourway I dyed, so I will have something to share very soon. The teal socks are blocking, I made the Stitch n' Bitch sock blockers from the second book out of clothes hangers, they are so handy! They are hanging in my laundry room at the moment. A funny sight!

I have to say that I have been knitting less, and I know that it is due to trying to get random things done and work on the house out in Richmond.......etc.......

I wish is wasn't so, I think that I will have to pull a coulple of "all-knitters" this weekend, I have things that have to be finished and gifted out! So frusturating, especially if it is intricate enough that I can't knit in the truck in the dark as DF and I go to get something done, or head to the hardware store or whatever!!

As you can tell, I need fiber terapy! More of it! I am planning on being at Knitopia Wools tomorrow night for knitting, to show off sock progress and hopefully trade some pumpkins for handspun! Anyhow, pics this week I swear! Happy knitting..........

I know just how you feel when you just need to do something with yarn. I feel guilty when I knit instead of doing all the things I should be doing but then I feel bad if I don't knit. Never happy, thats me :)

Hi, thanks for stopping by my blog to leave a comment about the apple cozy, since I don't have a job to go to where I need to take the fruit, it was pretty much just sitting there in my kitchen until I needed to eat it.

I just unsewed the opening... I don't understand the need for an apple cozy, is it that apples get bruised easily??

as for the orange cozy... well orange's already have a coat of protection, so it's mainly decorative in my case. I wanted to see what the fuss was about.
