Dare #54

I liked this week's dare. It was different than any I have done. I had a hard time deciding what to draw, but I think it turned out pretty good. And, a big Thank you to Erin! I won a 2013 Tangle a Day Calendar on the website!

Walt Disney World - Here We Come!

I have a confession to make. I did the Dare this week (#53), but I did not like it, so I did not post it. Hoping for better luck next week! We are heading for Disney World tomorrow morning, bright and early with Brian and Anna. I have been shopping, packing and getting stuff together most of the day. They do not know that we are going. Their Dad is bringing them tonight, for what they think is just a few days with us. We are going to surprise them. Richard is going to California tomorrow morning to work on his film and also to visit his brother, my oldest son, Chris and his family. I have really needed a break for a while and this is going to be the perfect one! Will post all the news and pics when we return on Sunday!

Zendala Dare #52

I feel about this one. On the one hand, I love it, it was so much fun. Then, on the other hand, I don't think I did a very good selection on the tangles. I will tell you this, I just love, love, love the challenge that comes with this. It is exciting, inspiring and so much fun! I am not sure how

Toe Up Socks!

I finally got the heel done on the second sock. I pulled it out 4 times, and I still have a couple of mistakes. I guess that is how you learn though. Both socks are now in the home stretch...knitting the cuff. Since I used Wendy's basic pattern, it had just a plain stockinette cuff, so I am doing it in a 3/1 ribbing. I can't wait to wear them! The color is so nice and bright. I hate that I have the boo-boo's, but the next pair will be better. At least I didn't knit a million socks learning the technique, as I did when I first started learning to knit socks. I can knit cuff down socks with my eyes closed now, and I hope to be able to do the same with toe up soon.
