My favorite slipper pattern

This is my very favorite slipper pattern. I use a double strand of yarn, to make them so very warm. I use acrylic yarn so they can be washed and dried. I make a pair for myself, family and friends every year. The pattern can be found here . They are quick to knit. The pattern is a very easy 2 row repeat. I used I Love this yarn, in the color Navajo Ombre.

Eyelet ZigZag Toe Up Socks

I Love, love, love my new socks! My Dear Knitting Friend Wilma designed this sock pattern. Wilma is an amazing sock designer and artist! This pattern is called Eyelet ZigZag Toe Up Socks. I like that Wilma designed this pattern for size 2 needles, it makes knitting socks so very much faster with size 2 needles. This is an easy 12 row pattern repeat! Just a very nice sock design!! I used Walk Away sock yarn, it is made in turkey and is a super wash wool. The colors of this yarn are so very Happy!!!

My husband brought me flowers from our garden today. Marigolds, and Zinnias. I just love Zinnias, they are my very favorite flower.

Staggered Rib Sox

I knit this pair of socks using my HiyaHiya 9" circular knitting needle. I just love that little needle. It is slick. Knitting with it is so smooth. The pattern for these sox can be found at . I used Sockotta sock yarn, which is made in Italy, a nice combinations of cotton, superwash wool, and nylon. The colors are cute to.
