Socks Done!

One more finished project in 2012.  These are the Ripple Effect socks that began last year as the August Mystery socks.  Got one knit in August, then it waited on the mate.  They are knit with Patons Stretch Socks in Taffy colorway.  I prefer the French name "Bonbon Caramel".  I will be wearing them to the Fat Tuesday Mardi Gras Parade tonight.

Holding jeans at highwater level to show the legs.

Lacy heels, even.

Knitting in 2012

Wow, I had not realized that I hadn't posted anything since New Year's.  Lazy me.  I have been knitting, though, along with having fun in the Dickinson-Galveston area.  Got to have a January meetup with Carrie K and Billie Rae at Park Avenue Yarns in League City.  Great yarn shop and a wonderful place to sit & knit. 

In February Billie Rae, Mary Kay and I met at a Galveston coffee shop for knitting fun.  You just can't beat the laid-back resort feel of Galveston.  Relaxing visiting, knitting and good coffee make for a great afternoon.

At the Mardi Gras parades I was so glad I had knit Beverly's Earwarmer.  I used LionBrand Woolease and love the soft feel.

Here are a few more photos of finished projects in 2012.
