More Pictures of Doris............

I'm always amazed that so many of you want to see more pictures of Doris. You know, I think it's really starting to go to "her" head!! As crazy as it sounds, she has taken on a personality all her own. It probably all started when I named her after one of my favorite actresses and singers, Doris Day. The reason - when she first arrived from Canada all boxed up and wrapped securely, I just knew she'd be able to hum and sing once she was all put together.

This photo shows the ribber in place and you can see the one ribbing needle that I've put in. She can do several different types of ribbing, but I prefer the 1 x 1 - it gives a nice snug fit.

The ribber sits on top and comes on and off. You just have to remove all the needles before taking it off.

Sorry this last picture is a tad blurry, but I wanted you to look inside and see the set up basket in place. You always begin with waste yarn that is later removed. If you work a 1 x 1 rib, it locks the first row of ribbing in place which is really quite helpful. Other ribbings don't do that and they need to be finished off by hand.

I hope you enjoyed seeing these new photos.

Just a reminder too, if you haven't left a comment on the post, "November Sock Giveaway", please do. You'll have a chance to win a pair of women's hand cranked socks. And they really are quite fun to wear!

Well, back to the sock I'm making and then after lunch I'll work on Mitchell's green monster that he wants!

Have a great day and I'll see you on our next post.
