What your socks say about you

It is finally late October and it was coolish for about 6 days. In honor of a temperature lower than 90 degrees I pulled out some hand knitted socks and my current favorite pair of Doc Marten's

The yarn is my first skein of Yarn Pirate in the colorway of Algae and the pattern is the Yarn Harlot's Basic vanilla sock pattern, my first go to pattern for socks. I love how the pooling is different in each sock.

I also want to wish my momma a Happy Birthday!

Snoopy o Fatty!

Today's blog is brought to you by Snoopy, or the fattiest Beagle ever. Snoopy has a tenancy to move and kick my pillows around my bed to they are where he wants to be. This pillow he moved in front of my window to where he laid his fat body down. When he stands up he doesn't look this fat I swear!

On the needles: Mom's birthday present, maybe I will get it finished before her birthday this Friday! Here's hoping.

Triumph and dad

in my mind I blog everyday. Perhaps because I use so many social networking places I assume people just know what I am up to. My fault.

So my brother turned the big 31 this week. See the giant gun in a blue shirt? That's him.Next to him, dad is holding my bro's dog, Triumph a Min Pin that is full of piss (literally) and vinegar.

I have been knitting and spinning a lot. I am working on my Barn Raising Quilt and socks as always.

And of course, the search continues for the perfect cardigan pattern. it is out there, somewhere.

That's all I have for now. Later Taters!
