A few posts ago I showed you one of my holey socks....a sad sight indeed. Having had a few of my hand made socks wear out I mentioned that 2010 was going to be the year of the sock for me. Margene has joined along...yay!
To kick off the year I have started with Cookie's Angee.
With the many varied patterns now available on Ravelry I have not really felt the need to purchase a knitting book in some time...however....there was a period of time that every sock pattern I liked was a part of Cookie's book, Sock Innovation. Needless to say, it is now a part of my library. Cookie is an incredible designer.
The first sock is finished and the second one is on the needles so all is good. My sock goal is to finish a pair every other month, which puts me right on target. :)
Since so many of you have enjoyed meeting our little one, I thought I would include a weekly update for Ellie. Puppies grow up SO fast and it really is fun to see how the grow isn't it? Ellie is just starting to recognize that there is life outside the whelping box.
She is by far the easiest dog here. Skyy has such a sweet disposition and is always so eager to please. A wonderful mom too!
