April 2014 Socks Complete

This will be a short post, because its late and I'm tired and it has been a cuh-razy long day/ weekend/ month!  I am so pleased that I got April's socks done, however, and this makes pair number FOUR of the year, which means I am still on-track for getting 12 done in 12 months!  Also, this is the SECOND pair that I intend to give as a Christmas gift, which means the SECOND gift is done and its only April.  Feelin' pretty good about that!  This pair is intended for son #3.  He loves pink and princess things, hence the pink toes and cuffs.  He also loves blue, so I made the body of the socks blue.  Its the perfect little marriage of color for my darling little guy.

One technical note:  this is also my second pair that I have made now WITHOUT any pattern.  I think this pair came out better than March's pair.  In other words, I think I'm getting better at understanding and creating basic sock structure.  Maybe after one more pair of patternless plain socks, I will try to create a pattern of my own... that is the goal!
Start Date:  April 19, 2014

Completion Date:  April 28, 2014

Yarn:  Vanna's Choice

Pattern:  None; improvised

Needles:  Knit Picks Harmony Interchangeables, size US 9

Project Bag:  Shockingly?  None!  I've been working on these strictly at home and only trekking them between living room and bedroom apparently didn't require a project bag... I didn't even realize this until now.  This is a travesty that will definitely be corrected for the next pair of socks.  To be without a project bag is like going out of the house without pants on; in other words, simply unacceptable!

And that's it for April's socks!  Done-o, complete-o, finished-o.  And now I'm off to bed, if I can tear myself away from the self-imposed Community marathon I'm currently enjoying...

BIG CHANGES for The Knitting Broomstick in 2018!!!

Hello everyone!  I feel like it has been far too long since I have chatted with you all.  It's so nice to finally be posting and sharing some things that have been on my heart for awhile now.  I will warn you in advance that this post is long, so feel free to skip over the parts that don't interest you! 

You will find updates in this post concerning my personal life, crafting, the Knitting Broomstick podcast, the 13 Months of Magic KAL (and other KALs), and the Knitting Broomstick Etsy shop.  I have added headers, in bold, so that you can easily skip to the sections that are of interest to you.  And if you read the whole entire thing; I owe you a massive cup of tea!!!!  ;)

PERSONAL:

First, I hope you have all had a wonderful holiday season!  I can't believe it is almost over, but it has been a great one and I'm thankful for the time I have had with my family.  It was definitely a different holiday season; a bit of a slower one for us, and that has been nice. 

Almost ever…
