Fancy Foot Work!

I've just come back from Hillandale Meetup Knit Group and as usual I had a phenomenal and productive time. We meet every Monday and a lot of us come right after work, tired and worn out from the day's events, but somehow we get re energized.

I'm still working on my first sock and I will have a picture of it soon. Again, I like to thank my two friends in Hillandale for the instruction, support, and just plain cheer leading for getting me this far. I am now shaping the toe and will be soon finish. Then I can start the other. I think I can get this done a little quicker. I ready to be finish because I want to start more sock art. Yeah, that sounds like a good name. SOCK ART. Hmmmm!!!

Well, anyhow I'm going to work a little more on my toe shaping before turning in. Thanks to my followers!!!

Turn of the Heal.

I am almost finish my sock. It is taken longer than expected, but it looks good. In my last Meetup group in Hillandale, I got great instruction on turning the heal. As soon as I learn how to pick up the stitiches and finish, I will be cranking socks out right and left. My Meetup group in White Flint will be meeting tomorrow. Everyone get ready I will be making socks and giving them out as gifts in the future. As soon as I get board with socks, I will move on the scarves, hats, etc, etc. etc.

I'm happy to be part of the Ravelry community, I'm a new member and still trying to find out how it works.

I also am sewing and am almost finish my skirt from my class I've been taking for the past month. I will be posting pics of both when I get the chance. I talked to my sister, who is currently deployed in Iraq. I may be doing knit alongs long distance. I want to deplete my yarn stash and fabric stash. The only thing I don't have is a lot of time. This is where my time management skills come in.

Well, I'm going to dash off, I have to get up early for work and though I have more to write about, I haven't collected my thoughts enough to put in blog form.

Thanks to my followers and be patient with me.

I'm Baaaccckkk!!!

It's been a while but a lot of things have been going on with me, hence, I'm going to write little by little to get it all in over a period of blog. The big snow motivated me to review my favorite blogs.

I've started knitting, sewing, and reading. It's been hard, because I've been working too, but for my sanity I have to get activity out side of work or I will go looney tunes.

I'm finding there are plenty of people that are knitters, crocheters, and sewers. Who would have thought? I've gone fanatical with all my hobbys and have to manage my time carefully.

As soon as I can, I going to learn to put my photos and eventually video of my activities. I'm also in the midst of organizing my office and craft room. Those of you who knows me, knows organization is not my strong suite. I have enlisted help of a co-worker and friend who is good at this thing. So I keep you up to date on this.

Anyhow, I will check back with my progress.
