Title? We don't need a title - there are knitting pictures


I am back! We took a trip to Ohio this past weekend. I did not have much knitting time, though. Or any time to read blogs, or post on mine. Of course, I'm not whining! (Yes, yes I am). At least we missed the big snow storm that hit here. That made me very happy. It started right after we left, and the snow was gone when we got back! Ya!

How about a picture of LD's sock with my newly painted wall for the background? We stuck her up on the bookcase for this shot. She wasn't really sure about sitting up there at first, but it's a very sturdy bookcase. Plus, hubby held her on the waist, so she was very safe.

I made up for the lack of knitting by going to Carrie's house this morning and knitting with her for a while. What fun! I brought some library books with me, and she pulled out her knitting books. I borrowed Knitting Without Tears and a longer circular needle from Carrie. I have Last Minute Knitted Gifts and Mason Dixon Knitting from the library. I have made out a wishlist for Christmas, let me tell you these books are right at the top. hehe. I gave my hubby the list yesterday to look at, and he said "Are these all knitting books?" I said "Nope, one's a knitting DVD". Hahaha!


I needed the needle Carrie lent me for the baby blanket for our friend. We all found out that it's a girl, so it doesn't matter if the pinwheel blanket is turning out too girly, after all. I'm so happy for them. Here is a picture of it where you can actually tell it's a blanket, and not some weird hat. Sorry for the junk all over the table. I have stuff all over still. It will go back to it's own place this week! We just have to stripe the last wall. I want my pictures back up! I'm not sure why the picture says 12 whatever a.m. I'd better check the date/time setting on my camera.

Well, time sure does fly! I'm a little in shock that blogger let me put two pictures in my post. I'd better publish it quickly!

Thanks for the comments on my last post. I am a constant commenter on a lot of the blogs I read. I hope I get some time really soon to catch up on my blog reading!

Happy knitting - blog reading - knitting book reading....

My hubby asked for my christmas wish list. When he looked at what I had written down, he asked "Is there anything that isn't yarn?" I said yes, there are two knitting books on the list. LOL!

The sock looks great (and so do the stripes)!

The blanket is really coming along--it looks great! And so does the sock. You're so lucky you have knitty friends close by.
