Shame on Me!!

I've been sadly neglecting this blog I know. Things were crazy around here for a while and I just didn't feel like updating. I promise to do better though!

I'm working on dishcloths, a baby hat for a gift and preemie hats for charity at the moment. No big projects to speak of at the moment as my shoulders and wrists are just not up to it. Hopefully soon though!

My yarn buying expedition that I mentioned in my last post was fruitful. I got lots of balls of cotton for dishcloths and some skiens of yarn for baby hats.

I'll take some pictures of my latest FOs and post them later this evening!

Ta-ta til then!

Sorry...

Sorry I haven't updated in so long. I've been sick and my head has been in a million different places. I'm still knitting, working on preemie hats at the moment. I promise more posts in the next few days. I'm going on a yarn buying expedition on Wednesday, so of course I'll be back with a full report of that! :-)

Now I must get ready for work!

FOs and The Fruits of Knit Shopping

Some pictures today. First my finished objects.


Baby hats in Caron Simply Soft Brites Watermelon and TLC Baby Fizzy Print


Horizontal Dash dishcloth. Fun and easy pattern, will definately use again.

And some of the fruits of my knit shopping...


My first ever skeins of Lamb's Pride. I love it!! And I highly recommend ordering from theyarnexchange.com. My package was mailed Saturday morning and arrived yesterday.


Bernat Matrix, TLC Cotton Plus and two sets of bamboo needles. I can't wait to start my scarf from the Matrix. I'll probably start it tonight.


My birthday is coming up and my relatives have said they're giving me money, so I'm planning a big yarn shopping spree later in the month. Whoo! :-)

I'm still working on the baby hat and the dishcloth. I started a scarf tonight from Wool-Ease and the handspun that KnitSteph sent me. I really should've waited until I finished the hat and cloth, but I couldn't help myself. :D

I promise I'll have pics up as soon as I finish the cloth and hat! :-)

I'm BAAAACK!

Hello all! I'm sorry that it's been so long since I've updated! You probably thought I had just abandoned this blog! I haven't, and I'm back! :-) The knitting bug has bitten me again, I'm back at it. So far, I've made a baby hat and I've got another baby hat and a dishcloth on the needles. I'm looking for other projects to start, but so far I haven't found anything I really want to make. I'd like to make a felted bag, but I've got to get some wool first.

I'll be back later with some pictures!
