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

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

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

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
