Happy St Patty's Day



~ IRISH BLESSING ~
May the roads rise to meet you,

May the winds be always at your back,

May the sun shine warm upon your face,

The rains fall soft upon your fields,

And until we meet again,

may God hold you in the hollow

of His hand.




Socks For my Mommy (wish I had more pics but it's been raining cats & dogs here and my lighting is ten shades of gloomy.)
Yarn: Cascade Heritage Hand Painted Sock Yarn
Color: 9824
Size 1 needle - Magic Loop

(No, we aren't Irish, but I sure would love to visit Ireland one day.)

Surprise, Surprise! My Sock Knitting Mojo has been revived! (I was beginning to wonder...)

These came out so soft and smooshy, I'm sure she's going to love them. I went a little longer than I usually do on the leg portion because I was just loving the colorway (the reason I bought an extra hank to work up my OWN socks one day!). Mom loves deep jewel tones. These should make her smile.

Last Saturday was another cold, miserable, WET day, but I still got out and went to my knitting meeting. What a great bunch of ladies and I love that they really work on meeting regularly. I'm jazzed about hooking up with them, Lord knows I NEED to get out more for sure. With all my pain issues I've turned into too much of a hermit I think (okay, I KNOW!) So this is a big deal for me. These meetings combine my two passions too: reading (we meet at a library) and knitting. Hot diggity dog. What could be better.

Happy St. Patrick's Day! I may wear Mom's socks so I won't get pinched. Remember in school wearing it UNDER something so you could double pinch them back?





My girls better run.

I made a pair of socks with Cascade Heritage and was really happy with how they turned out.
