Coffee, mug and yarn...Good to GO!

Talk about the PERFECT KNITTING GIFT!!...well, besides a good book, beautiful yarn and a pair of knitting needles.....!!!

I saw this on Good to be Girl's blog, and was sad...she posted this earlier in December, and I thought "No Way...this won't be available here.....well, I was glad to be WRONG!

I found several of them at my local Starbucks, and they were on SALE! 20% off!!!

I think I might go back and get a couple more..if I can afford to do it!!! TOO COOL! (OR HOT!)

Having Fun..making socks!

Seems like lately, I have been on a knitting trend. I think only because the chill has come in, and we have an ARCTIC Blast here in Los Angeles! Can you believe it is cold here? Well, we're getting in lots of rain over the last few days, and there is several feet of snow in Big Bear and the mountains over looking the Valleys....

One of the funniest videos I got in an email from is a SOCK video!

socks socks socks!
have fun!

you've got to check it out! I hope you like it!

Easiest smallest Socks to knit!

I am so hooked...on these teeny little socks!

I got the pattern after browsing through the internet, and found this cute little keychain kit! You only get the instructions and the wooded blocker with key chain, but it is so cute!

I decided to knit these, and they only take about 2 hours, at the most!

First, I didn't have size 0 needles, so I used Size 1

And this sock yarn, I bought at the fair. I loved the green color, and the colors varigated throughout, but of course in a project this small, you barely see any variation in colors!

This one is the second sock that I am knitting.

It is so cute. I just knitted the ribbing(k1p1), for 4 rows, and now I am doing the length of the sock...

Isn't the yarn pretty?

I love this sock you can see the yellow, and white....and green

Whereas, this sock, there is very little difference in colors, of just Green and white. You can see a little bit of orange at the toe.

But, you can see that this is barely 2 inches long and 2 1/2" high!

Now it is next to the block
Voila! it is done, and see, next to my little scissors..I guess it doesn't give you much proportion....
Does anyone read my blog? I don't know, but it is so cute..I will share where I got this!
This pattern was from Debbie Jennings...
too cute! and very easy!
