Just Keep Knitting, Just Keep Knitting

I am in the black hole of knitting but I must continue because the baby will be here soon.  The pattern is the Garter Ridge Baby Blanket.  The yarn is Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn in Tropical Pink.

Another Sock in Progress

These are socks I started while I waited for the new year so I could start my Colorful Celebration socks.   I am doing them toe up as well.  The yarn is Ella Rae Lace Merino.  I just added a little ribbing to the David's Toe Up Cookbook pattern.  I have started the second sock and hope to have them done by the end of January.

An Old Finished Object

These are my Red Raider socks that I finished in October.  They are Red Raider socks because these colors are our school colors and the Red Raider is our mascot.  I like to wear them on game days when I remember.
This is one of the two pairs of socks I currently have on the needles.  The yarn is Desert Vista Dyeworks in A Colorful Celebration.   I am using my Vanilla sock recipe but doing them toe up.

Ten on Tuesday Favorite Books of 2014

I read overe 100 books this year so this was difficult for me to just pick ten.

1. Ten Tiny Breaths by K. A. Tucker

2. One Tiny Lie by K. A. Tucker

3. Four Seconds to Lose by K. A. Tucker

4. Five Ways to Fall by K.A. Tucker

I enjoyed these books so much that I didn't read for almost a week after I had finished them.

5. The Mouse with the Question Mark Tail by Richard Peck

6. Where the Red Fern Grows by Wilson Rawls

7. Sarah, Plain and Tall by Patricia MacLachlan.  In 2013, I read Waiting for the Magic.  It is one of my favorite books of all time.

8. The Heist by Janet Evanovich and Lee Child

9 The Last Letter from Your Lover by Jojo Moyes

10. Unleashing Mr. Darcy by Teri Wilson

 I have been in a knitting slump.  I don't have much to show for the last couple months.  I am hoping that blogging will get me out of it.  These are Vanilla Latte socks, I am using Lorna's Laces in the Circus colorway.
These are a slightly modified version of the Vanilla Latte socks.  The yarn is Biscotte & Cie in the Queen of Spades colorway.
This is my current spinning project.  It has been on the wheel since July.  The fiber is Woolgatherings Polwarth.  I am spinning it into a gradient.

Please ignore the horrible tablet photos.  I couldn't get my camera to cooperate. ;)

Tour De Fleece

This is what I completed during Tour de Fleece.   From the top for down, one braid of Woolgatherings Merino Bamboo Silk,  FCK dance club in Tango in Polwarth, and Mambo in Polwarth.   The bobbin is Woolgatherings Polwarth that I only got half of the bump finished.  I did start the second bobbin today.
