My socks for the first 3 month.


Ok so it is March 2013 and a long time posting. I am not a good blogger, thats for sure. Will try to be better.
 I have a group over on Ravelry called 2013 Sock Knit-a-long. I did not start this group it was passed on to me. You are welcomed to join anytime.
Here is the proposed schedule of socks for the year 2013:
Colors … variegated yarn can be used but must have months color in it.
January - White
February -Red
March -Blue
April- yellow
May - Green
June - Purple
July - Red , white or blue
August - Pink
September -Grey
October - Orange
November -Black
December - Brown
These are just suggestions-feel free to knit whatever socks you desire each month.
Remember: You can work at your own pace or change to something more or less challenging as you see fit.
This is all about fun and challenging ourselves.

So come join. No pressure

Dish Towel Sets

Pattern for the towel toppers came from Mary Maxim's Apple Towel Toppers kit. This was suppose to be a Christmas present but was on backorder so I didn't receive it until after the holidays. Kit came with one towel and one skein of cotton yarn.

I then used the pattern to make 4 towels for my daughter Joan. As her kitchen is black and red , I used Lionbrand cotton in black for the toppers and was still able to make 2 dishclothes to go with the towels
