Lace! I am hopelessly enthralled by it and especially when it's lace knitted in the round!!!

Socks, socks, and more socks! I like lace socks, basic socks and cabled socks. I like making something that I can use every day and that don't take that long to make.

I love sweaters. I love to wear them, love to watch them grow, and love to see my kids in them. Short sleeve, long sleeve, cardigans ... and the best is if it's seamless too! It's so rewarding. Plus, it helps me justify my yarn purchases to dh - it's going to be clothes ... someday.

Socks and blankets would be close seconds though ...

Socks. Love the wearability, usefulness & ease of getting proper size of them.

Sweaters take too long and for me at least are harder to get a good fit.

That is one well dressed dog! I put a coat on my Shebah once and she looked up at me with this pitiful look and said "you're kidding...right"

Those doggies are ADORABLE . I wish my two mini dachshunds would wear sweaters, but we didn't start them young enough. If you put one on them now, they look at you like they are being abused, so I just don't make them.
