Pooling Yarn Sock Challenge

Pooling Yarn Sock Challenge

Judy at Patchwork Times is having a pooling yarn sock challenge..I have decided to use this Wollmeise Yarn named Aspen Tree! I love the yarn and hope it pools..I have never been amazed or in awe of this spooling phenomenon that my peers are getting into now..but I am willing to learn about it and see if I am going to be addicted to it! I just might be..haha.. The needles I am going to use are Knitters Pride, Dreamz size 2.50, 6″, and knit in the round! I will cast on 60 stitches and if I am not happy with that will cast on 64! Or I will switch to 2.75″!

Here is a picture of my yarn along with the calendar for the Month of March, 2013.

Now I am off to wind the yarn, cast on, and do the leg of a sock!

I am also getting ready to bake pies! Also, our grandson turns 7 today! So it is a special day in our home! We love our special boy!!! He is a joy to have around!! We are blessed! Grandchildren are so funny! Make days extra special at times!

Happy Easter Saturday everyone!

On The Needles Friday

On The Needles Friday

I started a new pair of socks! I am recouperating from a total knee replacement that was done Dec 26, 2012. I think this simple pair of socks will be perfect for me to do over the next few weeks or month! Oh geez I hope not longer than that!
