Summer Knitting

I am currently feeling a strong urge to do some knitting.

This might be more than a little influenced by the fact that I recently won a marvelous Giveaway by the sweet and generous Gerry.

Interestingly, when our family did our little time capsule this year, I had to write down something I wanted to accomplish in the coming year. I took a deep breath, threw my head back and boldly wrote, "I want to knit a pair of socks!"

I thought this audacious declaration would be the end of it. But here comes Gerry offering a knitting book and the sock yarn to go with it in her Giveaway. ::swoon::

I entered, and the rest is history. The package arrived---glorious book; soft, fun yarn; and even some stitch markers thrown in for sweetness sake.

And now it's all up to me.

Summer is almost here. And I'm feeling a strong urge to do some knitting!


  1. Shelley,
    How luscious would a pair of knit socks be?! I wish I could remember who & the post from way back, when several pairs of knit socks were featured. They were so awesome. After you finish your first pair, you could do a second pair using that yummy yarn from the grocery/errand bag you crocheted...'member?! xo Sassy Sue

  2. For the next three months, I have an advantage over you, I would need just one, and would be done in half the time! It would be fun to see all your projects some day. Sock it to it!

  3. perfect. socks sound deliciously comfy with my cup of hot mint tea right now. It's windy and rainy and I've got a tummy ache :( I'm going to go get some on right now...
