Crafting away

I really must get some pictures taken and get them on here. I really have been working on some things but just have not had the time to take any photos since I am still helping my MOM get settled in her new apartment here.

I started on a 1/2 granny square shawl. They are so easy to make and go pretty quick. I decided I needed some gratification so I am almost done with that. I still have my knitted prayer shawl and my knitted baby blanket on needles but have put them aside for a little while.

My daughter asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day and I told her stitch markers and size 2 circular needles. I am bound and determined to learn to knit socks. I have an extra fine gauge loom that I have one sock on but have not even picked that up in about 4 months. I have a hard time working with it so thought if I could learn to needle knit them I might feel a little better about making socks and might give the loom a try again. My LYS here offers classes on how to make socks on 2 circular needles and I am thinking about taking the class. (Hopefully they will not make me change the way I "throw" my yarn) Of course I would have to buy another size 2 circular but that would not bother me at all. LOL

My DH asked what I wanted for Mother's Day too. I told him all I wanted was a day to do exactly what I wanted to do on my schedule. If I want to sit and watch "chick flic" movies all day and work on needle crafts so be it. I think he was a little surprised by that but I don't know why he would be. It is the same thing I have asked for in the past 4 years! I love having my own day. I do the same thing for my birthday which is only a few weeks away.

I hope all of you are having a wonderful crafty day!
