I am so excited about these socks. These are my 2 toe up socks and I have just finished the heels. I was a little nervous since this is a first and I figured that since I was doing something backwards it would be difficult. Well, it was so much easier than the cuff down heel. Now I just have to go up the leg to the cuff and these will be done. My other socks are almost ready for the heels and I am not worried at all.
On Christmas Eve I finished this hat as a gift for DH. All through this very cold winter it has been on his head …… until recently. This is the result of the hat hitting the floor and being found by our most recent doxie acquisition, Sherlock. DH was very unhappy as he had been enjoying the comfort of his head staying warm.
So I have started his new hat, his Valentine’s gift. I am making the brim a little wider as he likes to turn it up and I like to see his ears covered. The brim is completed and I am on my way up: I hope to have this done tonight.
One small problem is that the doxies have decided that even though we have a couch and loveseat, my lap is the only place they want to be.
Even Sherlock, the reason I am knitting a new hat, is demanding that he be front and center on my lap. But you can see that they make me laugh so it’s not all bad.
And to keep me inspired, these are the flowers DH surprised me with. He had to leave very early this morning so these were waiting for me when I got up. They sit right in front of my living room chair so I get to see them whenever we are sitting there, watching TV and working on the computer.
And now I need to get off this computer and get back to hat knitting. Nothing like creating a deadline for yourself.
