The Socks are a modification of the 56 stitch 56 row socks from Chic Knits which can be found here. The yarn is Knit Picks Essential in Tucson Multi Colorway.
The afghan is finally finished in time for Joe Joe's second Christmas All my grandchildren have one of these-there fore this is the 10th one I have made. The yarn is Caron Perfect Match--the color is Country Basket Ombre. The border is Red Heart Supersaver in Country Blue. The pattern can be purchased here.
I still have one Lucy bag to finish--like ten more rows and the handles and felting. That will leave me 2 more Lucy Bags to line and Christmas knitting will be done. I would like to do more, but am calling it quits. Hope to knit a coupla sweaters for me after the new year. Happy Knitting.

You Are Mashed Potatoes
Ordinary, comforting, and more than a little predictable
You're the glue that holds everyone together.
I have to say thx to Grace for this little survey. Once again--happy Thanksgiving to all.

And this is why I wouldn't want to be going to Knitting On The Square in Chardon, Oh today. One week later this is what we got up to today in the secondary snow belt--and yes this is Lake Effect Snow. For those of you who don't know what Lake Effect Snow is--it is when the winds blow across the not frozen waters of the Great Lakes (for us Lake Erie and sometimes from Lake Huron) and voila--snow is created. This is not the worst snow storm I have ever seen--but it sure is early in the year for this much snow. We have at least 7 or 8" total out there and are expecting more.
The awful part is I have to work today and get to drive on those awful roads--not to mention how much I hate cleaning off the car. We do have a huge pole barn--but it is filled with antique cars--tractors etc.
As far as knitting and crocheting goes--I am trying to finish my Grandson's afghan and am working on a pair of socks and a NovemberWrap. This is a ravelry Link--if you are not signed up go to ravelry.com and sign up for an invite. This is truly the best knitting community in the world.
Well that is about it today. Happy knitting to all.
This is a pic of my Mom last Friday when we went to Knitting On The Square in Chardon, Oh to knit with friends. Temps last Friday near 60 degress and it was a beautiful day. I love going there with my Mom and she loves it too. Chardon is the snow capital of Ohio. We are about 10 miles south of the primary snow belt--but we are in the secondary snow belt and sometimes we get hammered. So glad we went last Friday--and you will see why in my next post.

You Are a Lemon Poppy Seed Muffin
You are smart, sophisticated, and savvy.
You love taking risks, and you are the first to know about new trends.
You are curious about the world and tend to have many interests.
You also are very talented. It sometimes seems like you are good at everything.
You are very social and inclusive. You'll be friends with anyone.
Even though you're very cultured, you're not a snob.
Just a cute little survey I saw on April's blog.

And there they are--the 2 biggest loves of my life. And then of course there is knitting, and my mom, and my kids, and my grandkids and the list goes on. I have so much in my life to be grateful for and my life is so full. Hope you are all well. Happy knitting :)
