Yes, I do enjoy wine

Pattern: Korknisse
Yarn: Valley Yarns Northampton
Needles: size 5

My family is part German/Dutch so I made these for St. Nicholas gifts this year. It's a very addictive pattern. My dad just gave me a bunch of corks from his collections so there will be more!

No, I haven't given up knitting, just blogging for a while. But I'm back now and we'll see how it goes.

Unfortunately, much of what I am working on is a secret, but I do have some finished projects to show.

First there were the babies born this summer. I knit the socks using leftover sock yarn from my stash (baby socks are so great for that!) and the basic toe-up pattern that I've used so many times before.

Then I finished my first Christmas present: felted tiger slippers for Owen.
I'm so excited to see these on his feet! Project details on

Finally, I have to share some Halloween pictures.
Here is Owen the ghost. I'm really proud of how awesome this costume came out. There was no knitting involved and minimal sewing, but he looked so cool.
Nathaniel wore the EZ Tomten cat costume I made for Owen 2 years ago.
Oh, and I quickly knit up a Hallowig for myself using leftover Valley Superwash.
