Yarn Along — Socks and a Shawl and Hats

yarnalong_gsheller_gray

On Wednesday’s knitters go to Ginny’s to share all the wonderful projects being worked on, finished, frogged, cried over, and learned from. They also tell what they are reading and a little of the storyline or provoking thoughts. I think it is great. So many books, knitting ideas and hints on how to make knitting more enjoyable.

Having cold feet, I pull on my favorite wool socks……….with thread bare heels.
I stumbled across a pattern on a blog that looked easy.
I shortened the leg and in three days I had new socks.

I’ve been listening to Marie Bostwick’s A Single Thread, A Thread of Truth, A Thread So Thin( this is where I am) and Threading the Needle series, a quilt shop, new friends and caring for one another even when they make hard to do so.
