Celtic socks finished!

Celtic socks were finished this morning…I actually enjoy the Kitchenering process…pictures later.

 Had to go out to one of the rural lots we have listed this morning to meet with the bushhogger…what a beautiful, beautiful, BEAUTIFUL area I am lucky enough to live in.  We need rain badly but the trees are starting to turn at the highest levels of the mountains and the weatherdudes are promising that the heat will break tonight…fingers crossed.

 Go knit something!


Hello world!

Thanks for stopping by…I am known in a lot of lists and groups as Betsy the knitting Realtor at Smith Mountain Lake in Virginia and I decided the best way to learn about blogs and how they work is to jump in and start one.

What am I working on now?  Well, three pairs of socks…Lynda Gemmell’s Celtic Braid Socks in burgundy Knit Picks Risata, a pair of plain ones of my own design in Dicentra Design’s Solar Energy color and I just started a pair in …groan…black…alpaca for my stepdaughter…using a watermelon rib that I learned from a Judy Sumner pattern ages ago.  I will try to figure out how to upload pictures in the next day or so. 

There’s also a couple of sweaters on the needles and the yarn just came for hubby’s new clogs…oh yes, and an afghan for my knitting couch – the Moderne Baby Blanket from Mason Dixon Knitting using Caron’s Simply Soft (my cheap washable yarn of choice when I am figuring something out).
