Knitting updates

grace's snowman cozy

I have been hinting at Grace (blog) from Mara's knitting group (needles54 on Ravelry check her projects out) that her January tea cozy should be a snowman. She has designed a Halloween. and Christmas tree cozy as well. So when we got together on Thursday she had not only designed the cozy- she gave it to me as well!!! Is it not the cutest?? She also took my Noro stole to ask her husband Tom to block. Knitting group was great this week. All 4 of us were there. Sandy and Jacqui brought some knitting books and magazines to check out and just a lot of cathartic talking.

So here is the afghan square I worked up the 14 for Tony's new car number

14 -tony

And the checkered flag square


Today I have been working on the pink anklets I started before Christmas. Curt picked up some size 2 bamboo clovers from ac moore for me. I slammed one needle in the car door and stepped on one, so I needed enough for 2 socks. I use 4 plus the working needle so I need 10- I only had 8. I want to start on a pair of breeze cable anklets from knitty this week.

I hope everyone has a great week!


  1. That is one crazy cozy! I love it. And you are one crazy fan for sure.

    I always enjoying reading the updates on the fencing squad, too.

    And thanks for entering my little contest!

  2. The black and white square came out great! So did the 14. The tea cosy is a wonderful gift. Just love it!

  3. Ha! I love the tea cozy! I is very cute!

    While I am not a NASCAR fan, I love the checkered square!
