I sewed a skirt! LOL....I cant take all the credit tho. I bought the material @Walmart for 50¢ a yard (!!!!!) . All that I did was sew down the side and put a 1.5in hem. Easy peasy lemon squeezy!!!!

OMG I've been working on these socks since June 2012! They are finally done! Yayyy! The pattern is Hedra by Cookie A in the Knitty Spring 2006 issue. The pattern wasn't hard, just a 4 row repeat. I just kept setting them down to work on other things.
Yarn: Knitpicks Essential Kettle Dyed in Bordeaux on size 2 US needles. I'm so glad to have them off the needles!
I'm attempting to knit down my sock yarn stash b/c it has REALLY gotten out of control. I going to try to knit 12 pairs of socks in 2013 and this is the first pair. Although, I did cheat a little b/c they were started last year. Next up: Embossed Leaves socks from the Interweave book Favorite Socks.

I've neglected the blog but I'm baaacccckkkk! And I'm knitting just as much as ever! I've finished quite a few things since I last updated like....drumroll please...THE FRENCH PRESS SLIPPERS!
I used Lamb's Pride worsted on size 15 needles in Pink. (What an imaginative name!) Felted @ my besties house (she has a top loader). I love how they turned out! :)

I still have a few pounds of tomatoes left, some apples (which may end up as apple butter), some peaches (I'm not sure what I'm going to do with them), bananas to make banana bread out of, and lemons and limes for curd. I think! I love canning! Here's a cool canning blog that I love to read....Food In Jars

My bestie decided we should knit the hemlock ring, so here it is. I've been on a kick about using up stash so I really haven't bought any new yarn (except to complete certain projects like this one) in the past few months.
Specs: Size 10.5 KP Harmony Needles, Paton's Wool in Natural and mystery camel colored yarn. Knit until I ran out of yarn....it ended up being about 4-5 balls, I think.
