Holding my breath...

When I purchase yarn for knitting socks, I always purchase two small skeins because one is not enough to make a pair of socks. I have yarn left over when I finish knitting the pair. I wondered if the left over yarn would be enough to make a pair of footies. As you can tell by the above picture, I had a piece of yarn about 18 inches long left over! Whoa, that was cutting it close! I was beginning to think I might have to piece the toe...but all's well that ends well.....

Sights of Spring at Our House!

I don't know about you, but I am ready to fling open the doors and windows and let in some fresh air. I'm ready to dust, clean, reorganize...get my nest in order and get rid of the confines of Winter. Vegetable gardening time is just around the corner.....
