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.
