Knitting Update

Last month I knit a felted purse and a pair of socks for gifts. Here's the socks.

They were for my sister-in-law Doelyn. She loved them. I love when someone loves my knitting. The purse was for my niece. I think she liked it. I forgot to take a picture of it, but trust me it was cute!


While we were in Virginia I started this:I finished it up the other night. It's my first glove and I'm pretty proud of myself. I used this pattern. I've started the second glove and need to get it finished. Not sure what's next. Maybe a baby blanket for my neice Tammie whose 2nd baby is due next summer. I also really ought to finish this sweater.

You are so talented!! I think it is amazing all the stuff you can make. If you check out that blog I told you about before (Michelle's SIL) you'll see all the fun gifts she made too. You knitters.....

Amazing work! I don't even know how to sew on a button. (OK, maybe I do, but I"m sure it wouldn't be pretty.)

I totally love the socks. Where is the pattern from? It looks very similar to some socks I knitted for my mother-in-law last month. Thanks for posting the pictures - it's always fun to see other people's work.

Well that makes you an Honorary Carolina Girl! :) Thanks it is fun and I am seeing you on Twitter too. I like your blog and your knitting. :) Feel free to add the Carolina Mama button to your blog from my sidebar. I just may have to get a special CarolinaGirls one soon. :)

You and I both have some seriously white legs! :) The socks look so good. I don't know how in the world you do it. Amazing, once again.

Robin, I love the socks! I am envious that you can knit them and I can't. :\ I have tried but I will keep trying!

Wow! Am I ever impressed! I read the neatest thing about a woman who felt led to knit socks and pray over each stitch...then, through a chain of events and interactions, she was able to send the ten pairs of socks to a prison in Siberia through a Campus Crusade musician who played in the prison. He said nothing brought a deeper and more powerful response from the prisoners than to receive those handknit wool socks over which each stitch had been prayed...for them...as led by God.

It made me want to knit.

And pray.

(I guess the story continued after that, and the musician asked others who knit if they'd like to do the same thing, and the numbers grew to the tens of thousands of socks for prisoners...)

Anyway. I saw your sock and remembered the story.

And again wished I could knit something other than a long, imperfect scarf.

great work!! i am slowly working on my first pair of socks but i am not liking them very much (and i think they are going to be WAY too small for the intended recipient). love the gloves. i might actually have to try some with fingers soon.
