Mr. Smiley

This makes me smile. My precious 10 week old grandbaby, Stephen. He must be thinking of Gammaw...

Stay tuned so I can show off my loot from Stitches South yesterday. I had a blast...

The book is here...

As most of my knitting friends know, I only knit from the toe up. It is the way I learned to knit socks from the Sock Knitting Queen herself, Zina several years ago. I have never witnessed any knitter turn out more pairs of socks than Zina. She is amazing.

Also, most of my knitting friends know that I cannot knit anything without a pattern. So most of my toe up socks have been straight knitting and that has kept me pretty satisfied. When I heard Wendy Johnson was coming out with a Toe up Sock book, I could not have been more excited. And it arrived today!

I am currently blocking the body of my Key Shawl (more on that later) and am getting ready to begin the final section of it. My goal is to have it finished by Stitches South which is rapidly arriving !

Again, if you are coming to Stitches South, drop me a line....

Sassafras Creations

Check out my new earrings from Sassafras Creations. I have been an admirer of Nancy's recycled knitting needle jewelry for some time now. Nancy was at our Noble Knitters group last Wednesday, and Diana had a great suggestion that we should all wear Nancy's creations whilst at Stitches South. Nancy will have a booth there so if you are coming, check her out! All of her items are marvelous and unique. Great gifts too. Also,

I will be working the Atlanta Knitting Guild booth on Saturday from 10-12pm so please stop by and say hey...

We are getting in lots and lots of sizes of Hiya Hiya Needles at The Yarn Grove so check us out!

Kudzu... Keeps on growing

I have finished all my kudzu for Stitches South. Why did I choose to knit kudzu? It is a southern thing. Kudzu is everywhere here. I cannot wait to see all the finished items we have made for the centerpieces at SS.

Anyone going to attend SS? I will be working the Atlanta Knitting Guild (AKG) booth on Saturday morning and would love to meet all of you! Please stop by or PM me for further details!
I'm off to the Rocket City again tomorrow am to see my precious grandbaby. Apparently he is crying for Gammaw ; ) .

Have a great weekend.
