Mantel and Socks!

I finished decorating the mantel the other day but it was raining and the room was dark. I decided to wait until a sunny day to take a picture of it. Well here it is:

Now for the sock part of the title of this post. I haven't finished the socks but I thought I would give you a glimpse of what I've been working on.

Here is what I've got done so far!

This is a closeup of the top of the sock.

Here's the bottom half.

I will post the pair when I have them completed.

Everyone have a great evening!!

I love all the pumpkins and the little ghost. Your sock looks good. Have you made socks before? I hear they're rather hard to do.

I love the mantel and the pumpkins, but mostly, the SOCKS! What a labor of sure to show us the results....and you totally made my day finding the mag at chez Target! xxoo A

Donnie-I have never made socks before and what a time I had because of my lack of concentration after my car accident! Now that I can concentrate I think I would not have had as much of a problem. I don't use double pointed needles I used 1 circular needle and the "magic loop" method.

Your mantle looks wonderful, Sherri!

I know your socks are going to turn out just perfect.


Debbie said...

Your mantle looks great Sherri! Maybe I'll add a few more items to my mantle to "Fall" it up.
I wish I could make socks!!!

Your mantle looks so pretty! It is all arranged so nice with your pumpkins and the little ghost!

Your socks are coming along and I love the soft blue! My mom used to knit....I never did learn! It always looked so hard!

I love the pretty things you arranged on your mantel! What a cute ghost! Love the color of your yarn for the socks, too! Enjoy your weekend! ♥

It just always surprises me what you can do with a pair of knitting needles!

Love the mantel! I guess it is getting time to try knitting again. I try every year and have never succeeded in anything but a couple of scarves. Still, it is a calming activity, and maybe one day I'll learn to follow a pattern!

Ring of Kerry, Ireland
My husband, John and I went to Ireland for our 25th Wedding Anniversary in 2004. We had an awesome trip and we will never forget it. We actually got to visit our friends who live in Northern Ireland. We spent 3 wonderful days with them! The picture above was taken when we visited The Ring of Kerry. The beauty of Ireland is just spectacular! If you ever get a chance visit there.
Megan is my oldest daughter. She and Ken were married on April 12, 2008. It was a wonderful ceremony and reception!
Jenny and Kevin at their wedding 8/30/08. The wedding was at our home and turned out wonderful! Everyone had such a good time!
