Can you believe it?! I really have a pair of socks! These were started in August--almost exactly 2 months ago! No excuse.
But they are here, and it's a nice feeling to have them done! (KnitPicks Static yarn, size 8-9 socks.)
Yesterday, I did go to the Fall Festival which was really the usual once a month Farmer's Market! lol
This is for Dee!
I loved all of the animal booths--and the ability to be close to the animals! We even talked with a guy about a 3' alligator he was holding (3'=three year old; they grow about a foot a year!\
He, the handler, was very informative.
Once home, I finished off some more hats with this same yarn combination-Lion Brand Wool Ease and some Premier Prints to make a family of hats to fit a family up north--
Daddy, Mommy, Big Sister, LittleSister and the baby hat if for the baby due in February! I always tell th enorthern family that I knit the warmth of Florida into them! I have enough of the printed yarn to make the kids some mittens on the Sentro knitting machine also! Coming Soon.
And I even played a bit on the lathe. A friend has requested a hummingbird house in the shape of an acorn so I did a little preliminary work to try my ideas out. After I finished this solid one for practice, I think I am putting it back on the lathe to make it a little box. I have ideas way more than there is time! lol
Woo hoo for the sock finish! I do love Static. The festival looks like a good time. I'm looking forward to ours next weekend. I hope the good weather holds. That acorn is adorable. How cute would that be hanging in a tree?ReplyDelete
VERY nice firetruck. :-)ReplyDelete
So many people think it is strange, but I MISS the alligators. I have always found them fascinating. You get this big lug of an land-animal that is so absolutely graceful in the water.
We still "see" them here. LOL When we walk at the lake I always do a double take if a stick/branch/log is close to the edge. I guess you can take the girl out of Florida, but you'll NEVER take Florida out of the girl.
I keep forgetting to check out the Farmer's markets around here!!!ReplyDelete
Love the hats, and the acorn - so cute!
