Tuesday is for Knit Alongs

Well, I am posting as promised! I have found that posting the minute I get home from work will be much better than going through my emails and cleaning up around the house. Otherwise, I read emails and surf the net and don't get a chance to post!!

I did get the fronts completed for Mariah on Friday and started on the yoke. The sweater is SO heavy on the needles. You can really feel the weight when working on it.

Mariah: All Yoked Up! Posted by Hello


Hopefully I will have time to finish it soon as it has been very warm. Today has only been in the 70s. I know I say only and there are people out there still with snow, but I would like to have the chance to wear Mariah at least once or twice before having to put her away for the rest of spring.

I am also sending off my Sockapalooza socks today. I hope my sock pal likes them. I feel bad because I think that I am much better at knitting socks now compared to when I made hers. I would still wear them (I really like them), and there is nothing wrong with them. I guess I am just a perfectionist.

In addition to receiving some pretty spring-colored socks, I am also including some cinnamon-chocoalte coffee and a bar of French-milled lavendar soap. I couldn't just send socks! So I thought I would include something fun.

Bye Sockapalooza Socks! Posted by Hello


Sockapalooza has been quite fun. I am very glad that Alison and Christine hosted this. Thank you ladies!!

Oooh- pretty socks! :)

I'm definitely going to try to attend the SnB group in Sac sometime. It sounds like a fun group of gals. It's hard for me to make it to any knitting groups during the week, because I'm usually out of town M-F, with a few exceptions.

Mariah looks great! I love the dark grey colour. As for the heaviness.... it only gets worse! When you start doing the short rows in the hood, and have to keep turning it.....I'm sure my arms are looking more buff!
