SnowDaze Toe-Up Socks

Last weekend we had a 'good old fashioned' Montana Blizzard.
I spent the weekend designing these socks.
What better way to spend a weekend when you can't get out and go anywhere?
I named these socks "SnowDaze Toe-Up Socks".

More weaving

The beginnings of another bag. :)
This one is almost ready to take off of the loom. Then I will have to weave the handle.
Weaving is FUN!!

Terry bought me a weaving loom, and this is my first project. I love this cute little bag!!
It was so much fun to make. I see lots more weaving in my future. :)

Below is a picture of the weaving in progress. :)

Shells And Eyelets Toe Up Socks ... and Weaving!

I just finished another toe-up sock design.
I named these socks "Shells and Eyelets" because they remind me of
sea shells. These were fun, fun socks to design.
The yarn is from KnitPicks.

I also have been working on my new weaving loom, and this is what I have done so far:

I think I will make this into a knitting bag. It is 13" wide, and so far I have 8 1/2" done. I have a LOT to learn, but it's been fun! This is my first weaving ever, and I should have chosen different yarn, but it's a learning experience, and one I have really enjoyed.

That's about all I've been doing lately. :)

It's been awhile!

Well, we made it through Christmas!!
I made several of the gifts this year.
I made scarf/cap/mitten sets,
some purses,
some necklaces,
some stitch markers,
and some scissor/tool totes.
Everyone seemed to like what they got.... I HOPE, anyway!

Now I've managed to get back to my sock knitting and was able to complete some that had been waiting on the needles for me to get back to them! :)

This is my Spiraling Eyelet toe up socks. This is my latest sock design.
The yarn is from KnitPicks, and is Gloss.
I have the pattern uploaded, and the link is above. :)

This is another pair of my Spiraling Eyelets toe up socks.
The yarn is roving that I bought from ilashdesigns, and her etsy shop
is here. It was very nice roving to work with, and I can sure recommend her shop. :)

These socks are made from my Diamond Chains toe up sock pattern.
The yarn is Debbie Norville.
I really like the softness of this yarn, but it splits very easily so can be difficult
to work with at times.

I am working on a simple sock design now, and am almost done with the socks.
Then I will have to write the pattern up, and can post pictures of it. :)

Happy New Year, Everyone!
