Knitting All Around the Shire

I was knitting myself a pair of socks.  I'm desperately trying to use up some of my yarn stash.  And, a pair of socks was on the agenda.


Then, I realized that Dominic's birthday was fast approaching, and I had no "made by Mom" projects in the works.  So, I set down my socks, and started making Dominic a pair of socks.


The only problem with sock knitting is that working on small needles makes my hands hurt.  I have to take frequent breaks.  So, I am also knitting this blanket.  I had the yarn in my stash, and the pattern perfectly fit my yarn.


I am on the road a lot, so not much reading is getting done.  However, we are listening to the Lord of the Rings Trilogy as read by Rob Inglis.  We're enjoying it immensely.  After all, we do live in the Shire!


  1. Your socks are so nice! When my hands hurt I try different needles. Metal are the best for me, wooden not so much.

  2. the socks and blanket are both great!

  3. Swanski, That's funny. I can NOT knit with metal needles. They drive my hands crazy. I started with metal and switched to wood after about 4 months. I was given a huge set of metal needles by my mother-in-law. They belonged to her aunt. I'll always keep them, but I rarely use them anymore.

    Erin, Thank you!
