This was my Christmas present! Hubby and I decided to do this in lieu of other gifts. We had to get an electrician in to pull a 120 line since there was only 210. Then we had to get the tile guy in to drill a hole in the tile for the gas line. Then we had to have a gas line pulled. After all of that, this got delivered and I am in seventh heaven. I don't think the old electric ceramic top range would have made it too many more days.

Really there is! I am soaking a quilt per the instructions from Vicki Welsh's tutorial: Save My Bleeding Quilt. The water has already changed color. I am soaking it for 12 hours because I want all that dye to release. I'll keep you updated.

I was commissioned to make a shawl for someone's mother. This pattern lends itself wonderfully to a yarn that self-stripes. The pattern was written for leftover sock yarn but I used a different yarn and needle size. Don't you love the ruffle?
Pattern: Sunday Morning Shawl
Yarn: Lion Brand Landscapes; colorway - Mountain Range
Needle: US #10

This is a cross between easy and hard. I didn't want some plain Jane stockinette socks because the yarn is a solid color. A cable runs up both sides of each sock which made these more masculine, don't you think?
Pattern: cabled socks
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock Solid
Needles: US #2
