Signs of Spring.

Look, there IS life!

Baby Herbs in Mom's Greenhouse.

Spring means lots of green.

Like Green Gummiebaer Boot Socks.

It also means finished Christmas gifts! Amazing!

I made these boot socks for Gummiebaer out of two skeins of Cascade 220 heather in forest green.

  • #6 needles
  • Toe up
  • Magic cast on
  • Short row heel
  • 2x2 Rib
  • Inc. up the back for calf shaping

I knit until I ran out of yarn. I really enjoyed knitting these and Gummiebaer loves them and wears them all the time.

Win, Win!

Hi!!! It's been a long time. How are you?

Thanks for the seedling pictures. I think I'm done with winter. Sadly, this Noreaster proves that winter isn't done with us yet.

Very nice socks! One of my first pairs for Jim was made out of Cascade 220. Very comfy, indeed!

Gorgeous socks! Did you use regular 220 or superwash? I've used 220 superwash for man-socks and they do machine wash well.

The picture of the baby herbs did pick up my mood this morning :)

Fabulous socks. I've always wanted to knit a pair from Cascade 220. Did you use a particular pattern????
