Wanna Play Charades??

Well I had to frog my Marlene's which took many tears and an entire day of grieving but I promise to get back to them soon. I love love love that pattern. In the mean time I got my "Bruised" yarn for Sarah at Perfect Day Yarns and I am so thrilled with it. I also got a skein of "I Bite" which I plan to use very soon. One of the gals on Ravelry ( LaLa) at the Loopy Ewe group mentioned that she really likes the Charade socks and I was not impressed with the yarns they used but I went ahead and cast them on in this Bruised colorway and they are fast and fantastic. Here is my update on the progress on my socks. Remember I have only cast these on in the last 24 hours and have had little time to work on them. Hugs. JoyB

Lovely cables

Okay pic time again. About a week ago I had finished doing a mystery KAl on the Knook and did mine in Fisherman's Wool Ease instead of the traditional cotton as I wanted to see what it would look like and how the yarn was to use. So. Here is a pic of my finished cable dishcloth. It is blocked and I just have to waeave the ends in which I plan to do this weekend. Also posted is a pic of the Cow Jumped Over The Moon cloth done on the Knook and designed by Kim Bullock. It was really fun to knit and I love the pattern. Thanks Kim... Hugs, JoyB

Potato chips and sock yarn...

Well my husband is pretty easy to get along with but the one thing that he hates more than anything is crumbs in our bed. So..Darling Penny from the WhoDuKnit group had made some of these and I contacted her to see if she was willing to make some up for me. As soon as they came, I took the bag and sprinkled them on the bed. I know you see it coming LOL Yep Jason came home and started to fume about the chips and then preceeded to pick them up only to find out that they are felted and they did not come with crumbs ROFLOL>> He loved the joke and I fear he is now looking onto the depths of his mind to get even but still. They are amazing and I am so thankful to Penny for being willing to make them for me.
As payment for the chips, I offered to dye her up some sock yarn in the color of her choice and she (of course) suggested PINK!! LOL. So here are the two skeins I dyed up for her to choose from. One is a pink and grey with cream that I call Fallen in Love and the other is s lighter pink with lots more cream that I call Cotton Candy.. So Penny take your pick and let me know and I will get it right off to you. Again thank you so much and I can't wait to see what else you come up with. Hugs.JoyB

Guess Who Got Magic Loop??

Yep thanks to Kim in Oregon, I was able to sit down and work out Magic Loop for my socks. I was really surprised how simple it was. I had really struggled with 2 socks on 2 circs and Dpn's were killing me (although I was able to get a sock knit that way). Here are the pics to prove that I am on the way to ML happiness and here is the project I am making.. I know I am crazy. That is a given LOLOL JoyB

How am I able to work in this mess ??? LOL

Don't ask me why I am posting these I just need a housekeeper LOL. Oh BTW... This is the only room in my house that looks like a bomb went off in it... Hugs. JoyB

So many projects so little time

OK so here is a run down of just a few of the projects awaiting the needles. Hugs. JoyB

Making Gauntlets.

I have had so many questions about the gauntlets and the yarn I am using that I decided to post a few pics here. I love them. I am thru the ribbing and the first repeat of 10 rows of cable pattern. I am making the really long ones so I may be up all night working on them but who cares? These are fun!! Hugs. JoyB

Oh here is a link to the yarn. Don't go buying it all I want more LOL
