On the Needles

Right now I am working on the Central Park Hoodie in the CPH KAL.

I have done the back and almost done the left front. I am really looking forward to having this finished asap.

I have also knitted socks, the ones here are for my daughter Jessica, but she found them too itchy with the wool content, so they end up being mine. I am going to get some Cascade Fixation tomorrow and knit socks up for her and hope she finds them more comfortable.

Our arrival in Canada

A little more about me.....

I came to Canada by ship (HMS Carinthia) in August of 1967. It was the final voyage of that ship and we left Liverpool, England with my mother and brother. My Dad flew over to Canada before we arrived so that he could find work. Here is a newspaper clipping of the ship we sailed on and it made the newspaper because it was the final voyage of that ship.

This is me on Christmas day
I am surprised I don't have a set of knitting needles in hands.

My first day

I am really trying to get a handle on this blog thing.
A little about myself first.....
I love to Knit socks, sweaters, anything that requires wool, a chance to sit down and relax, and time to create. I am addicted to knitting, I love the feel of the wool going through my fingers at lightening speed.
Now if I can just find the time from knitting to actually write in this blog! hehe.
