New scarfs new yarn

I fell in love with this yarn but couldn't crochet it even though I did try.  When I learned how to knit though, I found knitting was perfect for this yarn.  I just love the organic look of this scarf.

I bought this yarn and I think it is making a very pretty crochet scarf.  I love the shimmer.

Scarf for Christmas

I love bamboo yarn -- it works up so nice and comes in such rich colors.  This scarf is a gift for one of my grandchildren and the green yarn is bamboo angora and the multicolor is a wool.  I can't wait to see the finished scarf.

Pictures of the Fog

I love black and white fog pictures --

This is another view off my front porch with saturated color of fog --

I have so many members of my family in the military, that I would be hard pressed to be able to remember them all.  But the closest to my heart right now is my grandson in Afghanistan and my daughter Teresa who is in the Army National Guard.  I am so proud of them all and so very proud of our military men and women.  Thank You!

Knitting Socks

Oh my goodness -- I think I am unteachable when it comes to knitting.  I have a great teacher but my brain just does not want to knit.  But I am determined to learn it by-golly.  I am making a pair of socks -- I hardly ever wear socks my self but these will be a Christmas present if I get them done.  The other knit project is a scarf in this wonderful crazy yarn I fell in love with.  The red and white yarn just has to hats.  I even have a commission to make 2 crochet hats from this yarn.

New Hat and Scarf

I love the simplicity of this hat and scarf that I made as a gift for Christmas.  One of the things I love to do when I know I am making a gift for someone is to pray for them while I am making their gift.  It gives me peace and I hope it does them as well.
