Saturday Update

Well as this is a knitting blog I thought I would post some of the knitting I have been doing. First I finally cast on some socks for the hubby, hopefully I will have them done by the Sunday after the first day of Autumn so that he can wear them to church with his crocs. Yes, he picked out the yarn himself. It is great, not too heavy and very, very soft. It is Tofutsies. I am calling them Toasted Autumn as it have maroon and yellow-orange with black. They are really fun to knit!

I started a shawl back in July for my friend's birthday this next week, the 19th. She is one of those awesome individuals from the seventies with the flower child accent to her clothes. I wanted to do something a little wild on colors that someone would wear and immediately thought of her. It is made from Noro Sock yarn. I love the colors in it. I hope to finish it this weekend so that I can block it this week!

This was the last project I did for myself. Again some half socks which I love. I used leftover Jitterbug yarn from my birthday socks from last year. I am really happy with the results.

Last but not least was the awesome anniversary dinner that we put together. Dry cured ribeye steaks, baked Idaho potatoes, green beans. We sat out on the patio and enjoy the evening along with the food. It was nice and quiet, no obnoxious server or other customers. Just us, toasting our marriage, our family, especially MommaD whose birthday it is today and Cimarron Boy's that was thursday. We have friends that share our anniversary but have been married one year longer. It still amazes us that it has been 11 years! WOW!


  1. Wow as always you have some great projects going! I especially like your socks! I don't think mine would remotely look like socks when I am done with them.

  2. What a great dinner much better then going out. I love the shawl I'm sure she's going to love it. I haven't made my hubby anything yet. I did buy yarn back in April to make him a sweater.

  3. I love the colors on the shawl. What's the pattern?
