Personal Discovery Footprints

We have been having a knit-along and here are the results! This is Helen's Personal Discovery Footprint. This photo is actually old--she is done with the first sock, save for the Super-Stretchy-Bindoff. The leg and rib are now added onto this sock.

Has anyone tried to feed my fish? You can put your cursor into the fish tank and click to feed them. They follow your cursor.

This is Shirley's Footprints-her socks are both done now, this photo is not current. Have you started a new pair yet, Shirley?

And these Footprints and Feet belong to Andrea, my Daughter-for-Knitting! Are they keeping your toes toasty in Colorado?

Hope everyone has a restful Spring Break!

Addison's Reversible Triangles Baby Blanket

I LOVE this baby blanket pattern! It is knitted out of Encore Colorspun worsted weight, I really like how it worked up. For some reason it went much faster than the one I did for Jackson out of STR heavy weight. The Colorspun has long color repeats and you keep going because you can't wait to see what happens next. I threw in some blue whenever, where ever. I could have used less of the pink, But I did want to keep the gradation of color continuous, without starting a new ball, so it was important to keep the color attached when it was the main color section. I will bring it on Sunday. I know it will be my go-to-baby-blanket pattern!

Snuggy's 17th Birthday

This posting is brought to you by Tang.

Today was Snuggy's 17th birthday. We used to celebrate it like this. We both loved tacos from Chili Pepper.

Or sometimes we would take cat naps. Sometimes she was more tired than me, so I watched over her, and sometimes she stayed awake to watch over me.

And then, sometimes, we just snuggled together.

........and sometimes now, if I close my eyes really tight......................

...............I see her like this.

We miss you and love you Snug.
