No More Snow!

I am so sick of winter and so very much ready for spring! This our road Thursday morning with 3 inches of snow and Fri morning with ice on top of it. I had to skate out to the mailbox to get the mail. Well makes for lots of time for knitting by the fire. I guess that's what I get for living out in the country in Ohio.

Valentines Gifts

Well here are all the dishcloths and tribbles I gifted out for Valentines Day. I love them all and they were a lot of fun. Guess I better get busy with green for St. Paddys Day! I did keep one set for me.LOL

Baby Oh Baby

These are the baby booties and Hats I have been making for my niece's babies. One we know is a boy the other we don't know yet. I love doing these baby things. I will do mittens to go with them.
I got all these patterns online so that was real nice for free patterns. I should look up the designers so I can give them credit.
The blue and yellow set was done in Carons soft baby yarn. The multi one is Red Heart Econo multi yarn.
This camo one is for the baby boy and I haven't done booties yet.

My socks

Well I have been trying new things this year and socks on dpn's is one of them. I started my first pair on New Years and did finsh them. I love them and they could be a little tighter.

Here is my next pair of socks. I got this Liesure Arts book that is very helpful.
One more sock to go!! I love this yarn. It is Sirdar Snuggly DK yarn from UK.

Knitting and more knitting

Well I have been doing really good at finishing my knitting that I 've started. And here are few of them. Mackenzie keeps thinking of things for her Nana to make her. I now think it's so she can model it in pictures.

Here she is in her Tasseled Hat I made her and mittens to match. Such a show-off, but cute!!
Her little brother Braden isn't as happy to model his hat that Nanna made. I think I need to make one in camo to match his coat.

Happy Valentines Day!
