Socks Started

 I started another pair of socks. This yarn is knitting up so pretty. I loved the colours and thought it was going to be much more random. But look at the twist of colours I am getting. I makes me think of gardening and some of the flowers I might plant. I should say I got this yarn at Blackbird Knitting and Embroidery They are local to me, in the nearest city, Leduc, AB, right on main street. It was a good price too, under $12.00. 

I have joined some local garden pages. We get a lot of winter and cold, so we are some of the last to put our plants out. This year I will start a few plants inside. We also are planning a green house for the early days of spring. Below are 2 of my large pots from this past year. 

Planting a garden is having HOPE. 


  1. I started a new pair of socks today, too! :o))
    Mine are self-striping from the toe up. I have only made one pair from the top down. LOVE your bold slashes of color!

  2. Pretty yarn! A greenhouse sounds great with the short growing season up north. Your flowers are very pretty.

  3. Good to see you're posting again Cathy! Best wishes for a safe, healthy and happy 2021!

  4. Love that color love the way the green is winding thru!
