These socks are called “Little Roses”, and were designed by Linda herself! You can find the PDF file in her blog here!This link will take you to Ravelry, where you will find this free pattern! And while you are there, be sure to notice her other sock pattern, the beautiful Spring Pools, also found here on her blog!
The last week, and going into this one, has been very busy — my husband has had a lot of more computer business lately (he works out of our home and I pick up and deliver, since I’m the one that likes to drive!), and we’ve been helping a friend with his moving, so I haven’t had much time for yarn dyeing. I do hope to list a few skeins either tonight or tomorrow.
We have received two of these beautiful shelves from the friend that is moving:
He will soon be moving to Washington State, and as a thank you for us helping him to move some of his things and do some house cleaning, he is giving these to us as a gift!
We are just thrilled with them, as our current bookshelf space has been limited up till now! I’m sure as time goes on, though, we’ll have to replace the glass shelves with wood shelves to make room for more books — we have 6-going-on-7 readers in the house, so we’ll need it!

When I’ve had a moment or two at the end of the evening, I’ve been picking up and working on a crocheted doily! I used to make many of them in the past, but had to stop for a time, because it was very hard on my wrists (why knitting doesn’t bother them, I don’t know). But I’ve found lately, if I just do a little at a time, it’s not too bad.
Just wanted to give you a sneak peek of the sock pattern I hope to have listed by sometime on Monday or Tuesday . . . Ribbon Candy! I’ve been working on it non-stop for the last several days in the hopes of having it ready soon!
It’s just about finished — I’ll be sure to post the link when it’s ready!
