Thursday FiberArts Group

We've been having fun this fall getting together, fellowshipping, and watching college football. No more stereotypical stitch and gripe sessions here! We share crochet and knit ideas plus patterns. I'm teaching one Auburn student how to knit and crochet. Pictured here is Sarah getting a free counselling session from the family therapist, Darby. As you can see, Darby adds to the relaxing atmosphere of our meetings.

Socks Fever!

This posting goes out to my friend and fellow child of the Most High, Amy. I found that she has been stricken with this same fuzzy disease with me. Our small group misses you Amy! I love my socks and have more wonderful colors to fuel my sock craving. This is just four examples of what I've finished.
Thank you Darlene for teaching me this wonderful skill of sock making. I think of you every time I cast on another 48 stitches on my size 2, 9 inch circulars.
These socks are the reason why I haven't finished my "Happy Thoughts" freeform. Yes, Shannon, I will finish the piece, it sits in my livingroom inviting me to have some fun. Oh so many projects, so little time. *sigh*

The Big Braid

One of my fiber friends chastised me for not updating my blog. I have no excuses, just projects.
These three scarves will be listed sometime in the next few days on Etsy. Inspired by a chunky cable scarf by a fellow knitter, I set out to find something similar and this braid caught my eye . I had wooden beads in an old bag from my early macrame days so I used them in the fringe.
I've been learning new knitting skills but the one that got me totally hooked this summer was knitting socks. Yep, I got bit by the sock bug...and was I bit bad! That will be my next posting with my sock pictures.
