Socks and Gratitude

I am making Pink and Purlple socks for my ggd. And I am grateful she came thru surgery and is going to be well.
I am making Rockin Socks for my daughters best friend, who sat with her thru the surgery. Love you L.
I am making short socks for Brooke, who keeps me sane...or saner than I should be.
I am grateful for all the people in my life. Sometimes I forget to tell them, but I do make them socks.

I am doing so well on the fish...I think I can swim better.

And okay on the fruit /veggie thing, and coming up on March I have to figure out my next change.

And I ordered an e reader. I will let you know how this works into knitting when it shows up, but I am hoping it will make my books and patterns portable.

And the socks are coming along really great. Can's wait to get them done.

The split neck T shirt is almost to the sleeves, and I have cast on socks for my BFF, and my GGD. Purple and Pink. Tosh sock and Cascade 220 Superwash.

Pictures to follow......

Have a wonderful weekend, please. Have fun, hug someone. And be grateful for the people in your life.

Wish Me Fish

I finished the Never-ending Afghan. I finished and mailed bed socks for my son and bed socks for my granddaughter.

I am doing pretty well on my first habit change. I am trying to eat a fruit or veggie with each meal or snack. I am better at breakfast or lunch than I am at dinner. I got some broccoli and cheese to see if that helps.

This month I am adding fish. I am going to add two servings of fish to my diet each week.

I am almost to the end of my first pair of Tessere Socks. These are the ones in two different colors on one needle. And herein lies the tail. I wanted to learn to do two at a time socks, and due to my slow learning curve with some things, I decided that using two different colors of yarn would keep me from knitting them together. And it has. So I am almost to the toe and will have them off the needles today or tomorrow, and cast on the other pair. I love the pattern, it is easy to work.

So off I go into next month, with a sweater, a clapotis, and my socks.

Wish me fish!!!~!
