Happiness is...a pair of needles and a pair of socks!!!



Well, we've had a fun couple of days jam-packed with activities! Last night, Emmeline and I headed out to our local library to learn how to knit!!! Now bear in mind that my mom and sister are accomplished knitters!!! And then there's me. I've "learned" several times before but never stuck with it. Emmeline decided that she would like to learn so we met up with our friend and librarian, Ms. Joan, to learn the ropes, so to speak! Emmeline did quite well and is excited about her new fiber art form. And yes, I "learned" again so that I could help Emmeline until the next time we go to see Ms. Joan!






And speaking of knitted things, let me share Emmeline's lucky knitting socks. These are Little Miss Matched Socks! I had never heard of them until we went to Disney World a few weeks ago. They had a little shop full of the neatest socks and accessories you've ever seen. The really cool thing is that when you buy a "pair" of socks, you actually get 3 socks, none of which match. She picked out these toe socks (please excuse the copious amounts of dog hair). Pretty neat, huh!

Hope that your hearts are happy, your hands are busy and your tootsies are warm!!

    I think it's so sweet that Emmeline is learning to knit. I hope she continues with it. You two could have crafty girl nights :)

    I remember toe socks, too. And I remember they were not very comfortable.

    I couldn't find a link for your em address. To answer your question from my blog, Selene is a Newfoundland. My son wanted a great Dane, but his girlfriend said he could not get a dog that would weigh more than her. Well, she is about as big as my little finger, so I'm sure Selene outweighs her by many, many pounds!
