Morning, Happy 100th page annivarsary. i love u guys.......My Simly Love is finished !!

Dustina - Yeah, i made it. I finished the pair on the 28Feb but re-do it, not happy with the Rib Cast Off. For my fist 2 pair of sock, i use the normal cast off, knit one cast off method.

I tried that first on Simply Love, finds that it is tight as usual. Hence use the Sewn-Cast-Off method.....woo it is like what it said - A stretchy, easy cast-off that leaves an attractive edge.

Knitgal - it looks like an unknown planet

Jodi - Hi

silegose -Welcome to the blogging world.

Jenny - Ms Emily hang on....we are waiting to see you but not today or tomorrow..

Julie - OMG..... that is a very useful and handy mai tai and .........lost of words.....

The Knitter- Green is my favourite......

GJ- Feeling better today ?

I m taking a break now, but not for long as the March pattern is coming soon

Welcome to my blog

Sorry G J, that lets me out of the helping game. I am highly allergic to wool. I can't even touch it, let alone knit with it. I'd have been glad to help you had you stole been made with cotton or acrylic or anything but wool....
I love to give homemade gifts... which one of my kids do you want?

Find our "Canadian Oddball Blanket KAL" on Ravelry as: OddballBlankets

Here's a link to pictures on my Ravelry. I'll try to post pics here later.
Well if you need help let me know

Jackie if you're still wondering how to post all you need to do is sign in to blogger dashboard and then under the sockamania blog click post just as you would if it was your blog post on your own blog. Did you use a mai tai for Jane?

still no pattern here I thought that if we were given it on the 2nd of the month that we'd get it the 1st this time. I'm afraid maybe there's so many people that we may not get it the til the 3rd...whatcha think Dustina?

I put Caitlin in her bjorn last night and she loved it!!! Got so excited looking out at everything that she spit up and kept kicking and flappin her arms-think that's the ticket.
off to the shower while dh fixes breakfast.

Good Morning Socksters!!

Lieke~I'm sorry your wrist is still giving you trouble!!

Gina~That is going to be so pretty!! I can help ya out too...I love the LYS carries it such pretty colors

Jackie~YAY for finishing them on time!! I didn't see your socks on the blog...still post them and show them off

Tami~How are you liking the SKP pattern?

Julie~No pattern here either...I thought this was my first to get month too...but on ravelry they are saying to wait till Mon/Tues to e-mail for I'm not sure...I just looked back at the e-mails I have and they all came in the afternoon ... so maybe when we get back from the mall today I'll have it...

JD is taking us to Easton today...He works over there and I always hate to have him take us there on his days off... kinda long drive...but he knows I've been wanting to go the container store so he said on Wed he would run us over there...the kids are all excited

I hope you all have a great day of knitting!!

GJ, that looks really pretty.

I'm trying to give my wrist as much rest as possible. It did hurt a lot this morning, but now it feels a bit better. It's getting harder to keep myself from knitting. We went without power for about an hour (that never happens here) and was really hoping it would be over soon. I can keep myself entertained when I can knit (I can do it by candle light if I have to) but the thought of going without power and NOT being able to knit was really painfull. Fortunatley, the power just came back, we had just finished dinner (went out to get some chips)

I'm glad you're a LITTLE better, Leike! Keep healing! It is SO Hard NOT to knit!

Y'all are SO SWEET to offer to help me knit! What wonderful friends you've become!
I'm going to try to see how much I can get done in March. If I just can't do it, I may just take you up on your offers! Unless, of course, someone is just yearning to knit on this! I'm happy to share, of course!
