Yeah! I did it!

I finally figured out how to get the darn pics off my flash card onto the computer! Yeah!

Here is the yarn that I hastily dyed last night. I'm pretty happy with the results.

Finished socks update

I successfully washed my Hedera socks made out of the Cherry tree hill yarn. Love the yarn, love the color, can't say too much about the smell of it though. I washed them the other day and when I took them out of the washer, they smelled like a wet sheep! PU!!! So now they are dry, but still have a slight sheepy smell...humm..wonder how I am gonna get that out???

On another note, I dyed some yarn hastily last night to make my niece a pair of socks in the next 2 weeks. I had to end up dying the burgandy part of the yarn twice, cuz it sucked up the color so fast, it didnt' get to the center! I am pleased with the coloring so far. It is hanging out to dry in what I call my yarn tree ( the neighbors think I"m crazy) and hopefully it will be dry enough to ball up this evening. That would be great!

Well, I need to hem some pants for the man now cuz I promised...promises promises....

Until later

Finally finished!

I finally finished my 3rd pair of hedera socks last night! I love them so much I wore them to work today! So satisfying to know you made your own footwear:)

I"ll try and post a pic later on today...but first, the lawns must be mowed! We have been slackers and haven't maintained them in a couple weeks! For shame!

One of the best sites for dog lovers.

My friend Kerry showed me this site and I can't get enough of it! For all of you dog lovers....beware...major cuteness ahead. I enjoy seeing all of the puppy faces on a daily basis....

Who can resist those faces????

I guess its about time I posted right??

Not alot of knitting going on lately. I am still working on my hedera in the cherry tree hill yarn. I hope to finish those off in the next couple of days. It seems my knitting time gets cut short these days. I usually get about 30-45 minutes a day....oh well, I"m thankful for that!

The air is finally cooling off a bit around here. I"ll be happy to see fall!

On the literature side of life, I am reading a fabulous book called "The book thief". I highly recommend it! Technically it is considered a youth book, but I'm really digging it!

What a sad day.....

As I'm sure you have all heard, the Croc Hunter died on Monday. I dont' know about the rest of you all, but I loved watching the guy! I"m sad to see he is gone:(

Thats it for now:(
