Grandkids, knitting, baking and books…is there anything else?
Slightly technophobic grandma more than a little obsessed with granddaughters Susannah, aka the Papoose, Harper, aka Babydiva, Annabelle, aka the Sprout and Charlee, aka the Elf, knitting, books, baking and gardening.
This little angel is waging war on my handknit socks!
I’m beginnning to think I need to buy a safe…she manages to find and destroy at least one sock of a pair. She’s learned to knock the clothes hamper over to pull out the socks. I’m trying to cut her some slack, she’s still a puppy, but her taste for handknits and Mr. iknead’s azaleas is making me want to tear my hair out.
ON MY NEEDLES
This is about the fourth attempt at getting started on this.
Airy Yarn from Unique Chic Studios
80% Tussah Silk/20% Merino
I think I finally have a handle on it – I hope so anyway!
ONE MORE THING
I’d like to invite you to visit my new Etsy shop, ClayDreamsPottery.. I plan to update every other Monday morning, but now, I’m slowly adding things, but I’d love for you to come have a look around. I hope you like it!!!!!!!

In my last post I shared about my Shell Cottage Socks project, part of The Handmade Sock Society, Season 2. Unfortunately, the original yarn I used became so fuzzy after even a couple of rows it drove me crazy enough to put that project aside and try a different yarn.
I found a nice JoJoland Melody yarn in the stash and cast on right away….
I think the JoJoland Melody was a good choice, even though I can never do the colors justice in photos.

I joined The Handmade Sock Society’s Season Two sock club this week. Since the theme is “A Sanctuary by the Sea, I thought it fitting that the project yarn I’m using is Knitpicks Stroll in the colorway Seashell Tonal. I love the soft pink and grays of this yarn!
