Knitting my way through Arkansas

I spent the last week wandering around Arkansas with my sister-in-law while she visited with her parents. I got a lot of knitting done in the hotels and in the evenings while chatting with Susette and her mom. And we enjoyed some beautiful scenery and fall weather. No knitting in the car when you would miss scenery like this!

While we were in Arkansas, I found this great old swift at an antique mall. It works like a charm. No more winding by hand....happy, happy!


I started 2 pair of socks before I left and finished both. I love this pair. It's a complicated pattern, but cute. The pattern is the Solid Socks June Mystery Pattern on ravelry.com and is a free pattern.

Please excuse those cobwebs under the cabinet....I swear I cleaned them up after I saw this photo. LOL

And this cheery pink pair. This pattern is called Spring Forward and is free on knitty.com.

Hi Jan! I've missed you and your socks. Good to hear from you. As I recall, you do something fancy with lights in your tree, too. You put the lights further into the tree instead of on the ends, or do you do both? ~Mindy

Now THOSE are pretty socks. I can't decide whether I like the pink or the turquoise ones best. I'd hate to lose one of those in the washer. My washer has a habit of eating one sock with every load. Thanks for visiting! And thanks for your compliment about my window box!

I have the wool (via 6 sheep) but do not know how to knit!
