I’ve done a lot of knitting and crocheting over the years.
Shawls, blankets, sweaters, gloves,hats…..
I’ve loved every minute of these creative pursuits.
But there is nothing quite like making REAL socks for the first time, for the ultimate knit satisfaction!😊
Unfortunately, many novice knitters in particular are very intimidated by the steps involved in making that first sock.
That’s where a really good how-to sock guide, book, site or video can be invaluable.
Unfortunately, one of my favorite how- to sock guides by Sandra Harris, is NO longer available at Amazon.😔
But there ARE plenty of resources out there for the wannabe sock knitter. It is a lifelong knitting skill SO worth learning.
RAVELRY is a great place to start.
Sign up is free and easy, if you’re not already a member. A fun and worthwhile place to visit, with a multitude of resources, for knitters at all levels.
And with 🎄 Christmas 🎄 only weeks away, this is a great time to start thinking about those perfect handmade 🎁🎁.
Socks Made With ❤ Are SO Special!
After our recent move on Vancouver Island, we’ve been spending a LOT of time unpacking.
We had MANY, many boxes in storage, for years. Some even from my mom’s place. Slowly but surely, the end is in sight.
I love to giveaway things I no longer need and so far we’ve donated over 100 boxes of various items, to charity. Having garage sales just didn’t seem worth the time.
In -between unpacking and other commitments, we’ve been enjoying our new home and the incredible weather we’ve been enjoying so far this summer.
Mr. Cheddar is doing great too.
He hasn’t changed much through the years. People are always amazed that he’s 17 plus years and still so healthy and active!
Happy Week to All!😊

I had so many hassles with my previous domain provider NAMECHEAP, that I finally gave up using the two custom domains I previously had registered with them.
If you happen to be looking for a domain provider, avoid NAMECHEAP!
I wish you a safe, happy and memorable summer!
Enjoy all of summer’s beauty, wherever you are.
Happy Spring and Review Blog Update…
