Thanks, Gracie! It was such a joy to receive this package today. I was home sick all day and when the mail carrier knocked on the door and my husband brought this to me in bed…well…let’s just say it was very welcome! It’s gorgeous and I love the card. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Pattern: Rib Tips Socks
Yarn: Cascade Fixation in Black
Needles: US 3 Bryspun DPNs

Mike is pretty happy to have these and is even gracious enough to ignore the honking ladder going down the side of his foot. I think I pulled too tightly at the join of the DPNs and stretched the Fixation out too much. Lesson learned. Pattern: Cozy
Yarn: Joseph Galler’s Peruvian Tweed bought at Yarns and Fabrications the newest LYS in my area. If you live slightly north of Cincinnati or slightly south of Dayton you have to check out Yarns and Fabrications. It’s small right now, but I’m sure they’re going to grow. My SIL and I spent a couple of hours in there agonizing over yarn purchases and Lori, one of the owners, is just the nicest, sweetest yarn store owner I’ve ever met. And if you get a chance to meet her kids they are darling!
Pattern: Razor Shell Socks written by Miriam L. Felton
Yarn: Knit Picks Sock Garden in Zinnia
I’m in love with this pattern. It’s just absolutely fabulous.

The yarn is a little brighter than I anticipated when I bought it for a scarf and so it became destined for socks and I think they’re going to be perfect for Autumn.

And finally…the children relaxing. This is generally the view that I have while knitting. Aren’t they just adorable?

    Y&F is a great store. They were very nice when I visited too. Have you been to Lambkins? It’s only about 5-10 mins away from Y&F…good to do in the same trip…and it is REALLY, REALLY, awesome!
