I now have three pairs of socks ready for the cuffs and I’m knitting the heel flaps on the fourth pair. I had hoped to have all four pairs ready for cuffs and a photo but I ran out of steam.
I did manage to clean out my sock drawer and found a pair of socks I haven’t worn in ages. I’ll get a photo when I’ve finished all the socks and have them washed and folded in the sock drawer.
Grand-daughter Sarah will be here at the house with us today. It’s been too long since we had a visit and I miss her a lot. I’m sure the two of us will find something to do in my workroom and she can always spend some time on my laptop. I’ll show her some of the games on Pogo.com and see what she thinks.
I am a Native Texan, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Great-Grandmother, Catholic Convert residing in rural North East Texas since 1975 when I married my husband and this small town girl became a country girl.
I was taught to knit at the age of ten and discovered the writings of Elizabeth Zimmerman shortly after I married. I learned to ‘unvent’ things as I went along, to create my own patterns and generally have a blast with yarn and needles.
In the mid 1980’s I explored the idea of spinning my own yarn and eventually got interested in weaving on a floor loom. I have three spinning wheels and a 24″ four-shaft Herald floor loom that I purchased from a friend in the 1990’s.
I also enjoy sewing, tatting and making rosaries. I have a work room that contains my fiber, yarn, floor loom, sewing machines, serger and rosary making supplies. I have a spinning corner in a bedroom next to my work room, both with north windows looking toward the creek.
