Hey Ya'll!
I've not been around in so long I've not shown you anything that I've knit, albeit, it's not been much lately.
I did finally finish the Lacy Wrap from Vogue, but don't have a great photo, will redo photos when I do the rest of the ensemble http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/WIPs/th_lacywrapfromvoguenumber.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/WIPs/lacywrapfromvoguenumber.jpg) she is pretty and quite large, I used Brown Sheep Lamb's Pride
And then at the 1st of the year I knit a cute little ensemble for a nurse at my doc's office, it was for her gd and I didn't take photos! Anyway, it was Daisy from Knitty (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEsummer03/PATTdaisy.html) in a lovely lavender with these mittens (http://kyra.typepad.com/knitmeister/2005/01/) and these (http://www.dreamweaveryarns.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=741) too cute booties, also in lavender.....oh, and the daisies were backstitched in yellow, green, and pink all over Daisy...that was a bit of a pain, but worth it!
And I just finished writing a couple of sock patterns, 1st Lonnie's "Guitar Man socks" http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_wm2guitarmansocks2.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/wm2guitarmansocks2.jpg)http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_wm2guitarmansocks3.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/wm2guitarmansocks3.jpg) Just so happened that his newest guitar arrived the same day I finished the socks so the name seemed natural http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_wm2guitarmansocks.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/wm2guitarmansocks.jpg)
And then there are the Flapper socks http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_wm2flappersocks.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/wm2flappersocks.jpg)
I think they are a lot of fun...especially for holidays, these are my Christmas socks, see the bells http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/th_wm2flapperholidaysocks.jpg (http://i4.photobucket.com/albums/y119/rebeccame/watermarks/wm2flapperholidaysocks.jpg)

I'll have the patterns posted in a day or 2.

I am LOVING everything ya'll are knitting but I'm so behind that I can't comment on everyone's pretty knitting, please forgive me, hope to be back in the swing soon. Hip/leg are getting better...PRAISE GOD!!

I'm glad you're back! I hope that you're getting better. I haven't been on here for along while either, since I didn't have internet (financially coudn't afford it), but I am back. ;) Your socks are lovely! I especially love the Christmas ones. What a great idea!

Thanks, Guys :muah:
You are on your 3rd wrap?! WTG, girl! I didn't do the hat, gloves and socks to go with mine over the winter months when I was feeling so bad so they are still on my long "to knit" list, I would love to have several in different colors!
