Mom is taking over my blog!

Ok, mom says she has to take over my blog to show Zoe's mom the socks she knitted.  I apologize in advance for this boring entry!
The sock's mom knitted
Yeah, they are nice!  She used a special kind of wool that automatically makes the pattern as you knit the socks.
One of the socks actually on her foot
These were the first things she ever knitted and thought they were easy.  Apparently most people don't start out with knitting socks, but gradually work their way up to socks.
Don't I look thrilled in this one!
As it is my blog, I deserve to be in at least one picture don't you think!  Mom remembers ordering the pattern and the wool from Mary Maxim.  She thinks once she is finished with the cross stitch project she has been working on, she would like to do another knitting project.
Mom has placed all the full and 1/2 cross stitches and is now working on the detailing
So far today she has not worked on this project.  Instead she did this.......
Double chocolate biscotti
Yeah, she made a batch of double chocolate biscotti and used Kahlua instead of vanilla for the flavouring.  Now if only she would make some doggie biscotti!

Thanks for stopping by pals and I hope this entry didn't bore you too much.
Gratuitous picture of me!!

    1. Yup, Zoe, those were the first ever socks my the momma tried to knit. She had a problem "turning the heel" whatever that is, so she googled it, found a Youtube video that helped her, and the rest is history. Don't worry! Your momma will soon be knitting socks like a pro!

  10. That's why Sissor hasn't tried socks yet. The heel. An makin two things be the same size. Bol! I mean, Yawn.

    An' Buddy, Mommy is a hooker. Well, she uses hooks, not needles when she crochets.

    1. Yup, my momma is also a hooker, BOL. I mean she crochets and she also knits. Has your momma heard about a craft called "Knook"? My mom thinks she wants to try it. You basically knit, using a crochet hook! Tell sissor to try knitting socks. She will start a fashion trend if the socks are different sizes!

      Delete
    2. Yep, she's heard of the Knook. How 'bout Tunisian crochet? Broomstick lace?
      Argh, Mommy has nuf trubble with the regular crochet hooks.

      Sissor always goes back to hats an scarves when she needs a new project. I'll tell her to make sum socks.

    3. An' Sissor makes sweaters an she jus finished a skirt. Then there's always sumfin she don't like 'bout them an never wears them. tsk, tsk
