Harry Potter Secret Pal


Now that my pal, Megan knows about her gift, I can post a picture of the Harry Potter Sweater ornament I made her. It was a quick knit, and I'm thinking of doing a whole Harry Potter themed Christmas wreath for our auction this year.



Out of the starting gate


I finally managed to get my Tangerine Twist started. Now that the corrections have been made to the pattern, it will go pretty easily. I'm going to put another plug in for the Tangerine Twist KAL.

Cool, Beans!



I stopped by the post office today and I had two packages waiting for me. Whooo hooo! The first one was my Harry Potter Secret Pal package from my pal, Bean. Thanks so much, Bean! I'm surprised that the chocolate made it home for a picture (usually it doesn't). I also received my first Tofutsie's Sock of the Month from the Zandy's Yarn Shop in Minnesota. It's going to be hard for me not to start these socks yet, but I'll be a good girl and finish some of my other WIP's.

Tangerine Twist KAL

I've created a new KAL for the Tangerine Twist sweater from the Summer 2007 Knitty. You can click on the button to the right and it will take you directly to the blog if you would like to join in! I have my yarn for the project, now I just have to get one more size 4 circular needle.

SCW Socks Part II



Next in line for socks from the wrestling group is SCW president, Carson, shown above helping himself to my cookies. I'm using the same colorway as Ox's Sox - Royalty from Seacoast but this time I'm trying a variation of the K2P2 rib via Sensational Knitted Socks. I'm trying the Garter Stitch rib pattern and moving down to a size 1 needle. This sock should go relatively fast. At least I hope so, because these are my June socks for all my knitalongs.

A Tale of Two Socks





In Florida, you have Cindi. In Alabama, you have Emily http://www.yarnmiracle.com. How should these two separate socks meet? By being swap partners in the Hurricane Sock Party 2007. I received my package from Emily today so I can finally post my sock picture for her. Mine is the hot pink one, hers is the red. I love everything she sent me and can't wait for the hurricane (well, maybe not) so I can knit the other sock. Thanks so much, Emily!

Not a Sock - Part II


I've started working on my first lace shawl. (Well, actually I could probably say it's my second attempt at lace knitting.) I tried last year when I was still relatively inexperienced and it was a disaster. This time I picked a relatively simple pattern and I am using the laceweight that I got from a web site that shall remain nameless that has horrible customer service and very inaccurate dying methods. Needless to say, I usually hate the color yellow, but it's turning out okay. I still have to decide if I'm going to keep it. The color I ordered was supposed to be blue and gold like a Macaw, not lemon yellow and light blue.
