Happy 1.3.13

 Happy fun numbers day. It is 1/3/13.  Since Fireman rides
Engine 13 at Station 13 I told him to declare a holiday. 

Here are my Cherry Tree Hill socks in progress.  Oh I love this yarn.  It is my first time with Cherry Tree hill yarn....it makes my stitches looks even
it has a bit of give so it is painless to knit with
it working up in a blotchless way......
I have always wanted to try this yarn...
Look Out Lorna's Laces...
Friend, and lurker Karen is knitting this adorable owl scarf.
Can  you see the owls???  I love the yarn she is using. 

Are you as wise as an owl when it comes to 
Log Cabin Blankets ? I've decided that will be my next up
project.  I want to knit one for my family.  I've tried twice in the past and failed for various reasons.
Do you have any Log Cabin tips? 
I have not purchased the yarn yet.  
I think it will be my OFF night shift celebration purchase....

come on, don't be shy!

Oooooh, I just finished the Hogwarts shawl, too!! I am in love with the owls!!

That Cherry Hill yarn IS beautiful... AND you are doing a beautiful job. Takes both.

Hope your hubby and his peeps celebrated the 13s!

Cherry Tree Hill is by far my favorite yarn: I love the feel and the twist of the yarn.

I tried Log Cabin knitting and didn't care for it. I didn't like the look of the wrong side.

I have Cherry Hill in my stash... maybe I'll knit with it soon. For Nancy to declare it her favorite inspires me!

I haven't tried Log Cabin. No help from me.

I haven't tried Cherry Tree Hill yarn...might have to give it a try since a couple of you girls give it high praise!

I haven't tried Log Cabin knitting yet either...not sure if I want to...so am looking forward to what you create.

No log cabin knitting here either.

I like your new socks.

My Mom knit my girls owl vests and used little tiny white buttons for eyes...... they popped out on the front of the vest.

No tips on the log cabin, but I love your socks. Hang int there,

I never even HEARD of Log Cabin knitting! I immediately thought of quilts... I wondered if you were venturing into the quilting world.

I will have to check out Cherry Tree Hill yarns. I've never heard of that, either, until now. See how you broaden our horizons, Kathy?

If I ever were to log cabin, I would probably have to do small squares. I would get so bored towards the end!

I love the owls! Will they have button eyes?

The colors of that yarn are beautiful.

I confess I have never knit a blanket and have crocheted only one afghan. I guess large projects scare me because I ask myself If I really "want to do this" every time I knit a sweater.

I love your Cherry Tree Hill socks. Such soft, beautiful colors! Great way to start a new year!!

It's funny . . . I've heard terrible things about Cherry Tree Hill yarn, but I love it.

Your new sock looks great!
