I just downloaded some free patterns from Knitting Daily
http://www.knittingdaily.com/5-Free-Knitting-Sock-Patterns/. Think I will start off with the comfy socks. Wonder if I can wear my crocs with them.
Oh yeah I love me some crocs. Thats all I've been wearing since summer. might be why my feet are too cold but they really give me better balance while walking. and for me that is huge as I usually fall at least once every couple of months and I can't remember the last time I fell. So that's a good thing as Martha would say.
Talking about Martha, I just renewed my subscription to her magazine. I'd love to have a knit magazine to join that I can really use. I"ve tried quite a few in my years but haven't found one that I love. Might just try the interweave one from Knitting Daily. What magazine do you all like for knitting?

Here is how far I've gotten on the Sheepy washcloth:
And here some some yummy dreamy sock yarn I ordered from EatSleepKnit. I love their yarns and patterns. This is the most I've ever paid for one skein of yarn but I'm going to make myself some socks for my birthday. It's malabrigo yarn in the colorway Impressionist Sky. It's superwash Merino.
There is the little sheepy ornament I made for our Christmas tree. It is the cutest!!
Remember if you would like a chance to win a sheepy magnet made by me all you have to do is join my blog as a follower and on my birthday, Dec 12, I will randomly choose one of the followers to win a magnet or pin. !!! So come on and join me.

So go join up!!
If you don't want to join up and just want one of the pins or magnets, I am selling them for $4 each until I am tired of making them. So you can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions or orders. I will use pay pal.
Ok here are the new things Sheepy I made today. The 4 white sheep on the left

I ordered some bar soap from this company the other day and it was shipped super fast. The soap smells sooooo good. In with my order were a few samples of some of their other products.
There were 3 soap samples and 3 lotion samples. It came packed so nice and neat in a sweet bag and I was just totally impressed with it all. So I am hoping that you all will go here:
http://www.good-thymes.com/ and check out there site. Try a bar of soap or lotion. I personally love the Honeydew Lavender line. But the Apricot Mango comes in a real close second! The soap bars are a generous full 4 oz of goodness. yummmmm
I'm going to order some lotion to go with my soaps!!
Here is the yarn and needles pin:
And here are the sheep pins:
So tell me what you think about them. Go ahead and be truthful, helpful criticizim is the best.

I didn't want to spend the $10 they wanted for it so I made some myself. So for a couple of bucks I made 4 pins and one fridge magnet. ha. am I smart or what? Now what do i do with all these sheep I made. Guess I'll have to have a sale or something. I've also made a cute ball of yarn and tiny needles pin. will photo all of them and post soon as batteries are all charged up.
I finished the hooded sweater for my gd Mia. Hubby and I are going to baby sit the 2 kids for 2 days and a nite while their Mom and Dade get away for a 7 yr anniversary time alone that is sorely needed by them both. Hubby and I plan on having lots of fun with the kids.
Oh and hubby just found charger for the camera AND my cell phone, which hasn't been charged up in a month. What a guy!!
Ok so now to charge them both up, and then I'll be back to post a couple of photos.
