Well another new project! This has really become a fun project once I got past the bottom, the directions said to use a 26" circ, but I had a 29" and it was still pretty tight.The pattern can be found on Knitty
I am sure there will be more of these knit in the future..

Do you know how difficult it was to find a book in my house with only 123 pages... The book I found was;
Living Without Electricity (you may find this interesting, or you may not)
Amman stressed greater simplicity of life and stricter church dicipline than other Mennonites in these regions, and he wished to adopt the Dutch Mennonite practices of feet washing and shunning escommunicated members. Amman's followers became known as Amish. Following an earlier migration of Mennonites, the Amish sought homes in North America early in the 1700s.
I love to read about the amish, but really wish I had, had a knitting story to share.

If money were no object, and the day was just perfect - not to hot, not too cold, sun shining,
slight breeze - how would you spend a perfect day out that had been given to you in the middle
of a cold and blustery winter?
I would probably spend the day riding in the car, looking for some yarn shops. I might even take a trip to my friends shop in Michigan, in fact I know I would. Of course I would hope dh had the day off so we could spend it together......Then we would stop and have lunch and after that I would come home, relax and maybe cat nap!
I started this Thuja Sock on 2-5-08 for my DH. I am not even sure what the yarn is, but it has been very nice to knit with.. I cast on 72 stitches and will make the leg 8", knitting it using the magic loop method, one sock at a time...
I've just finished knitting the "THUJA SOCKS", all I need to do is kitchener the toe on the second sock. These are for a young man in a Russian Orphanage who will be graduating!
I was wondering as I was casting on another pair of socks (for dh this time), what do most people prefer, Double pointed needles or circulars? I have just learned to knit 1 sock on the magic loop method. Someday soon I hope to learn, or master knitting both socks on 2 circulars..
I would be interested in hearing what everyone prefers when knitting their socks!
These are the Thuja socks I had promised to post a picture of.. I am working on the foot of the brother sock, so they should be done soon, I hope. I love this pattern, and hope to try them out with some different yarn in the future. I will be sending these socks to "AKKOL", they will take them to Russia to the orphanage for a graduating young man. I will also be knitting a hat and scarf for him.
I am so surprised that today is my dear son and daughter inlaws 1st anniversary. Sure does not seem like we were in Cincinnati one year ago, Celebrating!
