New knitting books . . .

Not much time for blogging today — we spent about 5 hours in town today
to give away some of our baby kittens . . .

This picture is when they were a few days old,
but now they’re weaned and ready for a new home!

Everyone must be at the lake, or celebrating graduation this weekend,
because we came home with only one less kitten —
sigh, maybe next weekend!
(anybody want a kitten?)

NOW . . .

just had to share some new knitting books I’ve found recently!

The toe-up sock book is one I’ve been wanting for some time,
and between the two other books, I now have access to over
300 more knitting stitches!  I’ve been just pouring over these books!

The only one I’m waiting for is “Sock Innovation” by Cookie A.

Just . . . can’t . . . wait . . . !

I wanted to share with you the beautiful socks knitted by Bonnie

She has called them “Boysenberry Mad Color Weave”,
and they were made using my Boysenberry sock yarn.

Bonnie has chosen the perfect pattern for this variegated yarn —

Lovely stitching, Bonnie!

Bonnie has many other beautiful knitting projects —
you can see them on her Ravelry project page,
and lots more gorgeous photos in her Flikr album,
devoted to knitting pics!

Thank you, Bonnie, for sharing your work!
