Knit Along With Me

Location: Hazlet, New Jersey, United States

Married, 4 children, 11 grandchildren. Most important thing to happen lately - I found out I have two brothers and a sister in Texas - hurray - I'm not an only child anymore. I've met them and love them all. I now have nieces, nephews, and GREAT nieces and nephews. God is good!

See that Knit Net button???

I've added a Knit Net button to my blog. For those of you who aren't familiar with the site, it's an online knitting magazine. They always allow you to see a sample pattern from their issue but the magazine isn't free (except for me this year - hooray!). They have graciously granted me a full year's access to the magazine for some tips I submitted. The very least I could do was give them a prominent place on my blog eh!

I'm thinking of going to see the Yarn Harlot in person on April 11 in Rutherford, NJ. Why you say - because I can! There's bound to be tons of knitters and it's always fun to get together with knitters isn't it :-)

My Shelridge Farms sock yarn arrived - I'll post a picture later. I call it the poor man's Koigu - not because the yarn is inferior - oh no - it's really very nice! What's even nicer is the price! It's always cheaper than Koigu but when you get it through a coop it's even better pricing!!!!

Think retirement - no money to buy yarn! Solution - buy now LOL.

Still recovering

spring has sprung
proof spring is on the way
Maple Sugar and Syrup
two socks one circ one heel turned
Socks that Rock or at least they will be

Ok folks - just an update - still recovering from my computer problems. I lost the ability to use regedit - said it was locked by my administrator - I AM the administrator. msconfig is also among the missing. Either the Geek Squad missed some things or I was attacked by another virus/trojan/worm that got through my defenses. I've run more online virus scans than you can possibly imagine! On the bright side - check out the photos. Spring has sprung :-) And, the mailman, Fed Ex, and UPS Ground still know where I live :-)

I just had to have some Maple Sugar sock yarn by Cherry Tree Hill came free with some of their OWN Vermont Maple Syrup. Finally, my Socks That Rock and the pattern came from The Fold Not their fault - manufacturer was changing skein size so they were waiting on the manufacturer. Well worth the wait.

Also, check out the two socks on one circular - I'm enjoying this. Decided to do a short row heel so I didn't have to introduce a third needle to work a gusset.

Hubby goes in for surgery on Monday, testing tomorrow (Weds.), doctor's exam on Friday (boy, don't they just love to get your money), and finally the surgery (torn cartilage).

More later!
