I love the Fed-Ex man!

He brought me this today...


The Imagine for my shawl, 2 balls of Jiffy (I'm going to use it for a hood) and my first pair of bamboo needles, which I'm already in love with.

Yay for yarn!!

More FOs

Finished the crocheted coasters...



Now I'm trying to get my Boa scarf done because I need the needles to start on my Incredible scarf.

A Couple Of Pictures

I thought I'd take a couple of pictures of my dishcloth in progress...


Work in progress

I think it's going to be really neat when it's done.

First post! Yay!!

Well, now that I've finally gotten everything here set up, it's time to make the first post. Yay!!

I just recently started knitting again. I had stopped for a while and concentrated solely on crocheting, but I decided to pick up the needles again. I had forgotten how much I enjoyed knitting. :-)

Right now I'm working on a scarf from Bernat Boa in Parrot. I'm using 13 needles and it's working up really fast. I can't wait until I get it done.

I'm also working on a dishcloth for a friend from a pattern called Random Purl. I'm using Peaches & Creme in Faded Glory for it and it's turning out really nice. It's a really fun pattern to do and I'm enjoying working on it.

I went on a little shopping spree yesterday. I ordered two balls of Lion Brand Incredible in Rainbow to make a scarf. I also ordered 6 balls of Lion Brand Imagine in Autumn Leaves to make a shawl. I got two balls of Lion Brand Jiffy in Country Evening to make something out of, though I'm not sure what yet. Probably a scarf. :-)

I also ordered my first bamboo needle, a 9" size 8 to use for dishcloths. I've heard so many good things about bamboo that I had to have one.

That's all my knitting adventures for right now. More later!!
