The picture is blurry, but I am sure enjoying knitting with red yarn. It's different to follow a pattern instead of just going round and round. I went to Threadquarters this morning and got some Lopi, and a few more sock yarns, including some Trekking yarn in an olive tweed. I've wanted to try this yarn and I figure at 30 percent off, now is the time.

Hello out there. It's been awhile, though I have been knitting up a storm. To the left are shots of some plain socks and a felted knitting basket. I also finished a plain trinity stitch shawl and am working on a sweater, some red socks and a cotton top. I don't think I am a long term fan of cotton, but we will see.

My new cell phone has a camera and I hope I will inspired to post more often. We'll see.

I have been listening to knitting podcasts. What an interesting concept. I'm going to have to figure out what this new type of communication is going to mean in general. My kids laugh at me as I space out, plugged into my Ipod listening to Brenda Dayne. I'm not quite the demographic.

I'm trying something other than plain socks this time--Child's First Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush. Just started last night. Perhaps I will have some pictures in a day or two.
