Latest Completed Project
I don't generally post pictures of my projects, but thought I would post this one. I so enjoy looking at other people's pictures. Hope you enjoy. There is no pattern. I took a basic top-down raglan and added the lace panel down the front. Sorry for such a large picture. Could not figure out how to make it smaller.

My new addiction
I have started playing around with dyeing yarn with Kool aid and Wilton food dye. I'm absolutely addicted. I bought a few sock blanks from Knit Picks when they were on sale. Here's one I did and knitted up one sock to see how it would looked.
(Don't laugh at the upside down ironing board, I don't have a kniddy knoddy yet.)

Necessity is the mother of invention
I was recently on a two-week bus tour of the National Parks in the southwest US. (GREAT tour, I highly recommend it). Anyway, since we spent hours on the bus, I brought a shawl project with me to knit. Most of the project was a simple stockinette pattern so I was knitting happily along. But then I came to the lace border. Oh oh. A 16 row repeat. I needed to have the pattern in front of my eyes at all times to keep my place. The seats on the bus didn't have trays like a plane does. I didn't bring my magnetic board. I really hadn't thought I would get this far. I didn't really have my full knitting bag with me, only bare minimum to get this project done, but hadn't thought it through enough I guess. So I rummaged around in my purse to see what I could find. I found a couple of safety pins! Okay, I can make this work. I pulled a length of yarn from the out-of-work skein and tied loops in the ends. I fastened these loops to the knobs from the shoulder belts of the seats in front of me. I then put the safety pins through the pattern and hung it up on the line of yarn. Voila!!! Worked like a charm!! I still haven't got the shawl done but am close. But knitting sure made the hours of bus riding a lot more pleasurable.

2 Kala Kittens playing Peek-a-boo!
These Kala Kittens were such a fun knit and are a clever design as they come with a Carry bag that converts to a Kitty Bed when the sides are folded down.

I can visualise little ones loving carrying their Kittens around in the bag - plus many other things in the bag! Lol!

This is another lovely Gypsycream design.

I used King Cole Embrace yarn for the Kittens.

My latest lot of Comfort Dolls
A few went from my ever growing bag full to our local womens shelter and 4 others to a family moving in to assisted housing, others may go to charities as the need arises and the remaining at the end of the year will go to Samaritans Purse.

Socks of hemp?
I have just found a ball of STITCH STUDIO Whitman Woods. 100% hemp. Is this a yarn suitable for socks? Anyone tried hemp for durability? I’m assuming it will soften, as does linen, with multiple washings.
