red mary jane's

I've been in a knitting way. I know some people who don't like to knit in the summer but, not me, I like it year round. I love the rhythm, the feel of the yarn passing through my fingers, the chance it gives me to sit down and relax a little...something I don't allow myself all the time but, actually need to do once in a while.
Plus, when one bangs their toe against the foot of their blanket chest and ends up with a swollen and black and blue pinky toe it is a good thing to do to pass the time. Yup, that would be's on the mend now. I thought it appropriate to show you this finished project that is made for tiny toes because I know you don't want to see a picture of my tiny toe.

I will show you more knitted projects over the next few posts.

Those are adorable!!!

Knitting in the summer sounds just dandy. I was actually thinking about taking a class next month; I have to see if it fits into my schedule. :)

Why wouldn't you knit in the summer? It's the best thing to do on a long drive! By the way, those Maryjanes are beautiful, you did a great job!
