Socks And More Socks

I finally finished this pair of socks around 4 pm today and put them in to soak in Eucalan. They are drying on the sock blockers and will be added to my sock drawer when dry.

This is the pair I’m enjoying working on at the moment, another skein of Jo Dee’s BFL/Nylon base and the colorway is Bamboo. This is such a nice yarn to work with and it plumps up nicely when washed. I have fourteen more skeins of this yarn in various colorways on the way from Jo Dee to add to my stash.

It was good to be able to send a bunch of stuff out to Audrey at the farm with Brad this morning. I haven’t used any of the knitting frames in so long and I’m sure the kids would love them, as would their mom.

My new work table/desk will arrive on Wednesday and there won’t be that much to have to move out of the way. I have a place to put the decorative boxes until we get a couple of nice shelves mounted on the wall and the other odds and ends of stuff can be stored out of the way in the closet for now. We also ordered a table for the living room to go between our recliners. The table we have been using is too short and we need something at the same height as the arms of our recliners for coffee cups and remotes. The new table also has a drawer which will be nice.

It’s been a quiet day here, still too warm to open the house, but it’s cooled off and is nice out now at sundown. I’m looking forward to cooler temps tonight and possibly opening the house in the morning.

It’s time to put away some things I left out in the studio earlier and tidy up before bedtime. I really like waking up to a clean and tidy house. Tomorrow I’ll do some laundry and pick up a few groceries.

Have a blessed Sunday evening, ya’ll. God bless.

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.
