Here are some pics of the WIP

This bag is the result of my first exchange. I joined the International Tote Exchange III This year. I found this pattern from the Crochet Dude Blog. It came out so beautiful. I prefer to knit but if a crochet pattern catches my eye, then maybe I will try it. Below is a close up to see the colors better.

The pic to the left is my daughters sweater. She picked out the yarn herself. It is a real pretty pastel type green color. The progress is slow on the sweater. Quite frankly since I learned how to knit 4 years ago, I have done sweaters and blankets. I will finish it soon, but for now it is on hold.

This is my first sock that I have ever done. my news years resolution to myself was to learn how to do socks, and boy am I glad. This is awesome!!

Now this is a square from my lap blanket that I am making. The other five that I have completed are to the left. It was featured in the Family Circle Easy Knitting Magazine, I believe the Holiday 2004 Issue. I love the yarn, and it is beautiful. I cannot wait until I finish it.

Ok, Here We Go

I am new to this, I am a stay at home wife with time on my hands, I like to knit, crochet, sew and read. My children are ages 8, 4, and 18 mos. I have a couple wips that my husband keeps "track" of, you are starting that, why don't you work on your blanket or your daughter's sweater? I am at a bored phase, and need a break. So last week I cast on my first sock, ever. I see one place that I need to fix, but for being my first sock, I am very excited. I will post some pics a little later. I want to see if this works. Wish me luck.
