WWKIP in Long Beach, CA

What an awesome day we had at the All Things String Knit in Public Picnic at El Dorado Park in Long Beach, CA! The best part about this group is everyone is so talented and nice! Knitting, spinning, juggling and even a live baby Alpaca named "Seven" were the attractions of the day! Here are some photos of the event!

More Knitting Socks

OK, forget what I posted in Feb about knitting SS socks. I LOVE ME SOME MONKEYS!!

And I love this yarn that I picked up at Liscat in Long Beach, CA! Rio de la Plata sock yarn from Uruguay. Soft and fun to knit with! I also started a pair of No Purl Monkey socks with a Watercolor sock yarn from Lorna's Laces I bought at Alamitos Bay Yarn Company.

Back to knitting projects Ü

I love knitting socks!! Even if they are just stockinette socks, the yarns are so fun! I started this pair in Jan 2008. The first time knitting socks on DPN's :) I learned to knit socks 2 at a time on a size 1-40" Addi Turbo with the Magic Loop method. So I just had to try the DPN's to see if I could master it. Not doing too bad I say :)

And I also cast this on Feb 5th, 2008! I found this yarn at my LYS and it was still in the bag of 10 it came in. The owner said it was a mispick when she ordered....I bought all 10 cuz I just LOVE the color!! This will be a V-Neck short-sleeved sweater for moi!!

Our cat Sylvester

I also want you to meet our kitty Sylvester. He will be 3 years old on 4-1-08. He isn't too sure about having a new puppy in the house. He is king of the hill since Annie left us in Dec. He is HUGE! I think he weighs close to 20 lbs. His eyes are so pretty! One blue and one gold!

Meet Abigail aka Abby

This is our new furbaby Abigail aka Abby! She is an 8 week old Malti-poo. She is a mix of purebred Maltese & Poodle. Born on 11-23-07. I knit this sweater on 1-24-08 but she can already get out of it! I think I need to make the armholes smaller!!
