Love in Blue & Red

Hi friends,


I wanted to share with you the wonderful socks that my blogging friend, Joanne of Cup on the Bus made for my mother.



I can't tell you how much these socks are much appreciated as they will help to keep my mother's feet and legs warm this winter.  While I can knit a bit and love to make dishcloths, I haven't tried any major projects besides a baby sweater (which I am far behind in finishing).

I want to send a big blogger "THANK YOU" to Joanne once again. If you get a chance go over and check out her blog.

I haven't been blogging much as I've been too busy with Thanksgiving, matters concerning my mom, helping a friend and trying to fit in a few of my own appointments.

There was a birthday to celebrate on Saturday. No big party just a nice dinner, a small cake and song,  and some well wishes. We both like chocolate and whipped cream.



It has been raining a lot but today it was dry and overcast though it is still very warm here.

I took a few photos for you.


More rain is on the way this week.


I'm joining in with Our World Tuesday this week.

Enjoy your week!

  3. Knitted sicks always work at its best. I usually buy knitted wollen socks from knitting grandmothers. They are my best friends in a minus 30 degrees. Rain has stopped at ours and the first snow has fallen today.

  9. Pretty socks, and hand knit ones always keep the wearer warmer because of all the love and good thoughts in each stitch!
    I love the quote -- it's so true.
