DPN Holders, Socks, and Soapsocks

(Yeah, I still can't think of good titles. LOL)

Thank you all so much for the nice comments for SP. He is hating that splint. It rubs his leg, but I keep reminding him it's almost over! Yay! He doesn't wear it when he's sitting around or sleeping, either. If I usually email you, I'm getting there. I'm so far behind in the things I want to do! Especially Blog Reading!

Well, I have been busy trying to take some good photos of my soaps so I can finally put them on my etsy shop. I forgot to say that the soaps have the gentle scent of aloe. It smells good. Fresh. Everyone in real life has liked the scent so far, anyways! LOL.

Speaking of Etsy Shops, look what I got! I got some awesome DPN Holders. They have frog beads to guard against frogging. Thank you Sherry, they are so great! They have to guard these socks, because I have left them neglected for I don't know how long. They might get finished for the UFO along, or they might get frogged. We'll just have to wait and see. I haven't decided yet.

I also finished LD's Broadripple socks. They looked so huge on the needles, but they fit just right, and she loves them! They are really stretchy, too, so hopefully she won't grow right out of them. I know she won't, because I can get them on my big, ol' feet, so I bet she'll wear these out before they're too small. I've got the stats up on to my other blog. They even almost match! I love knitting socks.



I don't know where the time goes! I sit down here at the computer, hoping to do some posting, and go read some blogs, and I never seem to get much done! Not as much as I hope to, anyways. Where does the time go?
Here are a couple more pics of socks, and some finished soap socks, too.
I've gotta run and get something done before I go get those kids!!
Hope everyone's knitting and loving it. I hope I'll find some time to go catch up on blogs soon!!

Those soap socks are preeetty!! So are the people socks :-D

I hope you're son's all better soon! some years back I had to wear a brace/splint on my wrist for 3 or 4 weeks after wearing a full arm cast for 6 weeks... I feel for your son -- I really hated that splint thing...

Wowza, those are some nice socks that those stitch holders are protecting. I vote for finishing them. ;-)

The broadripples are sweet, too. I bet your soap socks will fly off the "shelf."

I'm really short on time myself lately. So I know how that goes. (((hugs)))

You sure are a busy girl with those soaps! :)

Love the ripple socks, but the UFO on the DPN holder is AWESOME! Finish those! The pattern and color are soo pretty!

I've been really slacking on the blogging lately. Take your time and visit me when you're ready! LOL! Not much going on over at mine, anyway!

The soap socks look great! LOL at the frog stitch markers. I think I needed some of those this week.

I have no idea where the time goes. I can't keep up with e-mail. It seems that the days just keep coming faster.

The socks look really comfy.

the socks look super duper cool! what is that orange ufo? a sock? I like the stitches--so intricate! :)

Stephanie said...

Look at all the wonderful things you've been creating since I last visited!

I'm so jealous of all your FO's!

The socks are super cute --- LD is such a lucky girl!

Sherry W said...

You take better pics of the frogs then I do! Happy you like them.

I need me some soap socks! Look at you go!

Romi said...

I love all the colors! Okay. Now for people like me who are obviously completely clueless: how do you use those dpn thing-gummies? What are they for? Perhaps for people (unlike me) who do not keep a death's grip on their dpns? It's a mystery to me. :)

Oh I know the feeling about time, it is terrible how quickly it goes. I get really ticked when I hear people say that they get bored because how on earth....

I have hearted your etsy shop and will you please list your soap socks so that I can buy one from you, I love them.
