LUXURIA

Vintage Knitting
My newest knitting friend Perry happened across some vintage yarn and gave me a couple skeins. LUXURIA from Bernat. Fun colors. Virgin wool....check it out:

Isn't she lovely?


Claudia has left us for Germany. I finished up a hat for her before she flew away. Here are some photos of her modeling the goods:

How's that for some Fair Isle??? I actually enjoyed making this for her. Once I got into it I turned the entire hat out in an afternoon. The pattern is the "Inga Hat" from Ravelry. Worth the effort, and rather impressive if I do say so myself! Hope she gets to wear it in Germany.
Lou also liked the hat and tried it on inside out...I think it's his best side....

And finally, Steve had his birthday last week. We all went to dinner and I gave him the socks I had promised him from last Christmas. Ok....the Doctor is knda slow....but I do deliver eventually!

Steve has very big feet. It took me a while to get these socks done! You know what they say:
Big feet.....Big socks....right?

Mr. Sock says hello there kids! Gosh I'm comfortable...hehe

That's all for this week. As you can see I am learning to use the camera and loving it.

Until next time
Knit on...
