Well this is a picture from when I lived on at the beach in RI. I miss walking the beach at sunrise, but I do not miss the cold, raw and damp weather lol.
Well it has been a crazy week again weather wise where is the mild winter weather in TX? I have been knitting more now since it is cold. The little ones do not want to go out and get their paws wet so no daily walks lol.
I am almost to the point where I start to shape the neckline of the front part of my granddaughter sweater. Plus I think I will use the same yarn but in a different color for the sleeves of her sweater to give it a little punch to the color. The lace project is going along, a little slow but I am confident that once I get all the stitches down I will be able to fly with it. I am looking forward to taking classes next month at the LYS. I have several that I need to take so I can learn how to make socks and etc. I am thinking that maybe I will try to get very good doing lace work and I figure the more you practice the better you become.
I feel much better now that my mom is doing better with physical therapy now for a while she had us rather worried but things are coming along rather well. I am going to try to figure out where I stored my knitting pictures so I can post some other ones. I have a newer computer and have to figure out what hard drive they are on lol. Thank God Michael is a computer wiz lol. That's all for now will try and get pictures posted soon!

Well here we are again this time with pictures to show what I am currently working on. As you can see I like to have a few projects going so if I get tired I can switch to something else lol. The first picture shows the lace scarf I am making. On Jan. 6th I took my first class at the LYS, called Easy Peasy Lace. I am using sz. #6 bamboo needles and the yarn is just to die for!! It is Handmaiden their Silk Maiden in the vintage colorway. I just couldn't resist this yarn it is 50% silk and 50% wool and it is so so soft!! Some folks may say that it was a bit pricey but hey I'd rather use top quality when I know it will last a very long time with proper. The next picture shows the front part of the sweater I am making for my youngest granddaughter's 3rd b'day next month, also Rita was checking out the progress I have made. I am using Sz. #8 bamboo needles and Plymouth Yarn's Jelli Beenz in color #513-1885. It's a bright pink with yellow, blue, green, red and orange running through it. I had help picking this yarn Amy from theYarntopia showed me this and I liked it because it is 75% acrylic and 25 The last pick is of my latest yarn for socks. It is a Debbie Bliss Cashmerino DK. I can't remeber the colr at the moment, but I can hardly wait till I get going on the socks. Well the weather is changing and I need to get a few things done before I can sit down put my feet up relax and knit. Cath ya later gator, Ciao! Bella
