The First Pair of Socks!

Ha! I finished these socks - my first knitting project in about 10 years, and maybe my 4th project in my life! They are red "Wool-Ease" with nubs of other colors (blue, yellow), and, of course, gray heels and toes. To be honest, I wasn't sure I was going to get any pictures of just the socks (sans hubby's feet) because once he'd put them on he was very reluctant to remove them. He loves them! I was trying to make them for me, but they are too long in the foot for me. I'm going to make some notes: instep should only be about 5 1/2 inches for my foot, 6 1/2 inches for hubby's foot . . . probably 5 inches for my son's foot, but he's growing so quickly that 5 1/2 would probably work just as well.

I know they don't really look like the same size, but in general they are. You can tell the first sock by the ruffly cuff top (trying to figure it out). Also I did the cuffs a little short . . . but they work for my first pair.

Magic Shoes

These are my extra-special magic shoes. For obvious reasons (i.e. they are sparkly and colorful), but also because 1. I got them on a girl's night out with my best girlfriend, Carol, and 2. they were on a huge sale!!!!! I got them for less than $20 when they were originally priced thrice that! Ack!

more cute cat pix

Samwise loves the webcam! It makes such a lovely pillow. Rosie prefers to stretch out more.

Aren't they sweet?

OK - now for the pic of the cake. This is for the Annual Cub Scout Cake Decorating Contest and Fund-Raising Auction . . . we're entering in the "Sports" category! Can you tell what it is? We had fun making it - mostly because it didn't take much time. :-)

Ok - these are pictures of me. The first is from a few years ago . . . and the other is Halloween this past year (2005).

This is chalk art done by my son. I've wanted to put this up for a while on my other blog, but it won't let me put up pictures for various reasons. Now that I know this will work, I'm going to add more! Yay!

Ok - I started this blog nearly 3 years ago, and obviously it didn't catch on with me then. Since, I've started (and actually been keeping) a blog at
