Cleopatra Socks

I just finished my Cleopatra Socks!!! I am in the knitgirl sock club and these were the socks that got sent to me!!! I was really intimidated by them at first, but the pattern was easy to follow and I really thought they turned out great!!! And I love the regal gold!!!

mittens and spring

I just finished my mittens from my coffee swap pal in Norway. She designed the mittens herself-- they are called Dog Rose Mittens. I really liked the way they turned out!!! Just ending the season of wearing mittens though!!! Maybe, I can wear them a few times!!!

And then, look at what surprised my girls in the yard the other day!!! A sure sign that it is getting warmer. This little friend of ours likes to hang out in our azalea bush that is right by the entry way to our house!

more socks

Finally, I am getting time to post!!! I made these feather and fan socks-- the yarn is corn based with some elastic. I really liked knitting with it. I liked the sock pattern too-- pretty easy, but has a nice pattern to it!!!

I am posting the coffee bag that I made for my coffee swap partner, that I couldn't post until she got it!!! I hope she likes it as much as I do. I just think it is a fun bag!!!
