Post Holiday Ahhhhhh ;-D

Hope you and yours enjoyed your Holiday Season.  Ours was fantastic this year.
  All the knitties went over in grand style and my fingers were glad for a tiny break.  Here's a few  odds and ends gifties that I passed out to loved ones.
These went to B.  I had a sneaky sack by the knitting nest so I could knit on them quickly while he was out of the house.  Phew...that was a close one.

OK, so maybe I am not so generous....I kept this one. ;-D

For SS Dustin and below for his love, Paige.  I know it's corney, but these match their new puppy!

AND, for (probably Piper) below a hat, 'cause I'm gonna' be a Sammaw.

Santa was VERY good to me and I spent the day yesterday, dashing about buying yarn and a swift and winder.  NOW, that's some fun stuff there ;-D

Couple of newbies

Here's a couple new pieces from the Knitting Nest.
This funky hat came to me in a dream where I was putting hats in the oven and baking them...huh?
I mad these hand warmers for our neighbor that plows our driveway in the winter ;-D
Thanks, Kevin!

Sock School

I had a nice quiet day at home yesterday so decided with a book and DVD to send my self to "sock school"  I used the book "Sock Knitting Master Class " by Ann Budd as my guide.  The DVD was vital in me getting the drift of things.  By the end of the day I had made my first pair of socks.  I have wanted to knit socks for ages and ages ;-DDD
  I also made a scrunchie cowl to go with the Parrot Head beret I posted earlier.

Winter Knitting Nest

Those of you that know me, know that I HATE winter with a cold passion.  BUT, this year, I've made my winter nest and started knitting again.  I have knit since I was five years old, but haven't picked up the sticks since 1995.  WOW, that was a long break!
  I've been having a blast making little slouched berets and a few garments.  The garments are being camera shy at the moment, but here's a few pics of some of the berets I've made lately. ;-D
Stay warm!

I've been busy "makin' ".  I have several new things to show you.  I am still enjoying my studies in soft glass.  Glass is glass and it melts and stuff and I LOVE it all! ;-D
Bones - for some reason, we had to do bones.  I don't know...ask my muse???
New cancle holder with big gianormous bead.  FUNKY!
Purple and white dots bracelet..just plain fun.

Magnifying Glass with large floral bead.  Dig it ;-D

JAZZZ it up around here!

I just went through both my blogs front to back.  I'm kind of in a "back to basics" mode here.  I was amazed to find out that I used to do a lot of twistie, murrini and stringer work...HUH?  Who knew.
  I was also taken by surprise how fun this blog used to be.  What happened to that?  Time to jazz it up around here!
  Here's a few new pieces that I've been working on of late;
These are from my Minimalist series.

Fun BIG boro focals

And as always....some shells ;-D
Time to start having fun again all up in here.  More spicey stuff coming up ;-D
