New knitter

My eight year old knitter is soooo cute. She just learned and she LOVES it!!!How could she not???? She is so proud of the "blanket" she is making with bumps and bobbles... and so am I!

Homesick for the SW

I'm homesick for the SouthWest and it comes out in my knitting and furniture!!! I bought a house that came with furniture-- so I have been refinishing and recovering the things to match my taste. So these are my latest projects: an end table with petroglyphs and a recovered pillow, SW colors and feeling.

Monday Date, again!

Ran a beautiful trail run for our Monday morning date. The only problem is that I hurt my neck in a rollerblade crash a few weeks ago and the run seemed to make it worse.I was following Dr.s orders--- she gave me no restrictions. I guess I'll have to listen to this old body!
Finished my 2nd pair of Rockin sock club socks. The yarn was absolutely beautiful. All different shades of green. (I'll post a pic later). I had a bit of trouble with the pattern-- it was a different kind of heel. It turned out cool and I learned something new!
