Socks, Socks, Socks...


I know it has been days since my last post. Birthdays have kept me busy knitting socks. My mother loved her Mother's Day slippers, I had also made a matching wash mitt for her. I had to take care of getting passports for 2 of the children. My parents are taking them to France for a month, and they are leaving today.
I am very much like a mother hen, constantly counting my brood, and I hate missing any of them. I am happy they get to visit our family, and see beautiful Normandy, but these trips are always a little hard for me.
This summer, however, I will be busy. I am in the final phases of preparing for the new business and I should be ready by the end of the week.
I told you the business would have everything to do with knitting. What I did not tell you is that it has everything to do with yarn, hand-dyed yarn in particular, and of course socks. This picture will give an idea of what is to come.
I got so busy that the rose garden socks were put on hold temporarily, and I still have to work on the Harry Potter socks...

Lovely socks! Hmmm... a new business with hand-dyed sock yarn? Sounds intriguing!

A month in France!?!? Those are some lucky kids of yours.

Hi Jodi,

Thank you for the nice comment. It is a very exciting time for me, full of creativity. I am on a great adventure!

Ahhh! France! I enjoyed my stay there back in my young days. Talking of Europe, my Granny from England has been visiting! BTW - I have been meaning to tell you the mother's day slippers are lovely and I plan on making myself a pair... one of these days.

Take Care!
