On the Needles - 3/22

And Happy Birthday to me!! :)

This week, I am in Florida with my parents. I brought the pups and my granma and we have been relaxing all week. My neighbor Timmy is having a Stay-cation at my place and making sure nothing happens on the home front. I hear stories of some outrageous parties, but I know he is just sitting on the couch and watching TV. lol

There are 6 dogs in the house - my three reds and my parents have 1 black and 2 white and black doxies.


They are not cooperating on the picture front.

But they are all being very conducive to my knitting!

I have finished a washcloth.


I finished the purple socks and sewed the ends in as well. The yarn is Stroll by Knit Picks.


And I started a pair of socks using a chart and cables so that I can practice for the Infinity Cardigan.


The yarn is Madelinetosh sock and the color is Hickory. I love how the yarn is knitting! I did forget to wind the balls so I had to wind my own. I started these on Tuesday night! The pattern is Zora by Regina Satta.


See what others are doing at Judy's blog!

And here is Daphne who can't be bothered to get her picture with the other dogs.
