Caught Up!!!

WOW! I think I'm FINALLY caught up with my blogging again.
It's been quite awhile since I've posted here.
I've been busy making beads and jewelry, plus
knitting socks.
I also have printed out and laminated several of my sock patterns and put them into tins
for easy reference. I have them listed on my Etsy Store.
They can be found here:
This is what they look like.....

So as you can see, I've been a busy, busy girl!!
But it's been fun.
I hope I have things in my store that will make it easier for you
to do your Christmas shopping. :)

Feather Lace Toe Up Socks

This is my Feather Lace Toe Up Socks.
The chart needs to be followed closely, and I don't think it would be very easy to memorize the pattern. But boy are these pretty socks!!
I used KnitPicks Risata yarn.
These socks turned out very nice.

The pattern can be found here:
I am charging $5.00 for the PDF file.

Wings Of A Swan Toe Up Socks

This was such a fun pair of socks to design.
I named them "Wings Of A Swan" toe up socks.
The pattern chart is a little more detailed than my charts usually
are, and you most likely won't be able to memorize the pattern
but will have to keep the chart handy.
This pattern is for sale at my Etsy store for $5.00 in
PDF format.
It can be found here:

I am sooo in love with these socks.
I used Wendy Happy yarn and it's oh so soft!

Ladders and Lace Toe Up Socks

I named these socks "Ladders And Lace".
I have the pattern for sale at my Etsy store for $5.00 in PDF format.
You can find the pattern here:
I love the look of 'ladders' in my socks.
I hope you will like this pattern as much as I do.

Lainey Lou Socks

I named these socks "Lainey Lou" socks for my sweet friend Lainey.
These socks turned out very cute.
I am selling the pattern on my Etsy store for $5.00 in PDF format.
You can find the pattern here:

I hope you will like the pattern as well as I do.

Leaf Stitch Toe Up Socks


I finished another pair of socks today, and got the pattern written up.
I named them Leaf Stitch Toe Up Socks.
I LOVE this pattern, and actually have made 2 pairs of socks from it.

The yarn I used was from Knit One Crochet Too and is named Pediwick.
It is a yarn made of bamboo and nylon.
LOVELY yarn. It's a little 'splitty' to work with, but I love it and will
make more socks with it. They will be nice warmer weather socks.

The pattern can be found here:
on my Etsy store.
I am selling the pattern in pdf format for $5.00.

I Got A New Camera.....

I'm happy with it!

Polyclay Tropical Barefoot Sandals

Barefoot Sandals are fun, fun, fun! For those of us who love to go barefoot, but yet would like to 'dress up' our feet, these are the perfect answer. You will feel special and dressy in these' sandals'. The beads are chunky and colorful, and will be real eye stoppers at any casual get together that you will go to......perfect with your favorite sundress, or a pair of denim shorts, or with a bathing suit, or a pair of capris. They will go with just about anything you choose to wear. They are bright and summery, and you will be wearing a one of a kind product that everyone will love.

They are listed on my Etsy store, and you can see them here:

These Barefoot Sandals were created using my own handmade beads. The beads were created with Premo polymer clay without the use of a mold, so each bead is unique in size, shape and color design. No two beads are exactly alike.....and no two sandals will be exactly alike. I used stretch bead and jewelry cord in the construction of these sandals, so they will fit most ladies sized feet.

(Please ignore the feet in these photos. I didn't have anyone here to model for me, so I had to put them on my own feet)

I am charging $5.00 for this pattern in PDF format.

Ribbed Diamond Toe Up Sock Pattern

Here is another new sock pattern from me. I like this pattern, and I named it
