"Gramma, can we do our yarning now?"
That's what me and my boy do when he comes to Gramma's house.  We play trains, garden, watch movies and do our yarning.
And what's on the needles?  For me it's a sock (I'm on a mission!), and usually a dishcloth too (because, well, you know)... and for Chance?  Well, this week it was monkey's in a tree.  Last week, he made me a thundercloud.  Next week?  Maybe he'll make me a pizza, or a rainbow, or...  the possibilities are endless!

Wool + Needles = SOCKS!

One of my dreams has always been to be able to knit a pair of socks. It feels silly really, as I absolutely hate wearing them! I love to be barefoot and only wear socks when I have to. And by have to, I mean it's usually February and -25 degrees outside!

But since I now consider myself a knitter (a novice one yes, but still a knitter) I figured it was time to fulfill that dream. And so two Saturdays were recently spent at my LYS enrolled in Sock Boot Camp and lo and behold, I found myself knitting socks. 


Well, once that was figured out I couldn't just stop with one pair.  

Operation Sock Drawer has begun!
