Post Christmas

Well, the big day has come and gone.
No knitter type gifts for me at all. Unless you count the hairclip that I can use as a shawl pin from hubby.
That shawl I was going to work on ... no go. I was liking it at first, then I reached a point where I said "I don't like this", sat it down, and haven't picked it up since.
Now I'm working on Klickitat. Making it in a soft smooth orange cotton. Almost a hunter orange. It's for the grandbaby-t0-be of a friend. The parents-to-be both do a bit of hunting. I have one front completed, and the second one close to being completed.
I can see me making this for another couple I know who are expecting. And maybe even using the basic pattern to make a stole for myself. It's an easy knit.
Have a good one!

Almost Christmas

Long time, no post. Sorry. No excuses. Just nothing to post about. Seriously; I'm boring!!!

I just finished off a pair of socks for hubby for Christmas. They are crazy socks, made with leftovers from other socks. He likes those type. Even though he saw me making them, he doesn't get them yet :)

I think I am done my Christmas knitting. Nothing scheduled to be knit as gifts. But, I did get a free pattern on Ravelry today, that should be a quick knit. The Acer Shawl It's free till Dec 16th, with the code "Free1" ... if you see this in time to get it

Merry Christmas everyone!!

Sweater Thus Far

This is me and my "just take a picture that shows how much of the sweater I have done, and try not to get too much of me in it". My hubby didn't listen.

Well, it would be a picture of me, and my sweater thus far ... if blogger would let me put the picture up!!

March Sweater Madness

Yesterday was the day to cast on a sweater for MSM ... a month to knit an adult sized sweater.
I went to the city with a friend, and did not cast on my sweater.
I will cast it on today.

I'm going to be making "Iced" on the knitty site.

I'm using Bernat Chunky in the grey ragg color.

I'm getting very annoyed because blogger will not allow me to put up any pictures. Why not??? What do they have against me?? Why are they being such bullies?

March Sweater Madness

My friend Barbara told me about this. Think I might be brave and give it an attempt.

This might be the sweater I attempt. Not sure. Just discovered that the yarn I had picked out to use won't work for it.

Maybe this one??

I have 1200 yards/meters of chunky grey/white tweedy looking type yarn. That's what I want to use. Any suggestions?? Yes, I AM thinking that bulky means knit up quickly :)

Not knitting, sewing

But still a fibre too ... cashmere.

Found a stained cashmere sweater at the Nu2U. Brought it home, felted it a bit, and turned it into a pair of mittens. Nice comfy warm mittens.

Have bought a few more sweaters to make a few more pairs.

Stay tuned, my second FO of 2013 is drying as I type :)

First FO of 2013

Long time, no post. Sorry.

Actually was wondering if anyone ever read my blog ... if anyone is missing my posts ... should I continue or not? Comments???

This is my first FO of the year. It's the BLT Scarf/Shawl on Ravelry.

Made with llama. Yarn was given to me by a friend who asked me to knit her a shawl. The yarn came from her friends llamas. And the shawl is being sent to her because she "needs it". I'm glad I made it my first knit of the year. Started Jan 6th, finished Jan 22nd (or somewhere near then)
