forgot to post some photos

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on March 10, 2010

Here’s photos of the socks I made for Valentine’s day.   Jim’s socks were from a blank I dyed and my pink socks are from yarn that Riin made.  (  Thank you Riin, it was wonderful yarn)  The fuzzy background is my dog Hans.  He’s very patient and works for kisses.

Estonian Cast on for Sock Knitting

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on August 16, 2009

Below is a link for Nancy Bush’s favorite cast-on video.   I needed a something stretchy cast on for a new pattern and found this video.  Enjoy.

Also found this on youtube.  My husband and I just watched Bruce Campbell in his latest B-Movie, My Name is Bruce.  :)  He’s hilarious.

2 Month Blogiversery

Posted by Fairy Yarnmother on December 3, 2008

Tomorrow is my 2 Month Blog aniversery. Can’t believe I’ve gotten 350 views so far. I’m so grateful to everyone for stopping by and hope that I’ve entertained you. Please keep looking. :)

I’ve been busy getting some work done before the Holidays so I haven’t had time to post anything. I’d like to post more regularly. I took some photos of my dog, Hans, out in the snow. Yesterday I let him out and he stuck his whole face into a snow bank and came up looking like Santa with a white beard. I didn’t have a camera, so today I was prepared.

Here’s Hans playing in the snow:

Running in the yard:

and coming back with snow on his nose to check on me. Click on the photo to better see his brown/green eyes. He’s the sweetest dog in the world:

Here’s some projects that I’ve been working on but haven’t posted.
socks made with both ends of a sock blank. each sock is a reverse of the other. I’m planning on making the stripe until it gets close to the heel and then a intricate fairisle pattern around the cafe.

These socks were made from one of my patterned sock blank. They have a short rowed heel and I’ve made a cable pattern for the back cafe portion of the sock.

These are the socks I just made for my husband on my circular sock machine.
