Oct/Nov Knits

November 18, 2007

I haven’t had much time to blog about the knitting I have been doing. So I took a picture of some of the finished and in progress knits. Also in the back of the picture is a crocheted baby sweater and hat in Patons SWS. I made this in the spring time and didn’t have time to take a picture of it. It became a store sample. I decided to bring it home, though since I am not teaching crochet right now.

October and November Knits

1.  Top Left – Ribbed Wristwarmers (and next to it hat) in Manos

2.   Snowflake Hat from Newton’s Knitting, I added some additional colorwork on the top and used the third color for the top of the hat.  I am going to teach this in my December’s knitting class.  🙂  I love how it turned out.

3.  Mosaic Knitting hat – I attempted the endless knot pattern on this sock, but did it on this hat.   It turned out “neat” but there isn’t enough contrast between the variegated yarn and the gray yarn to show the endless knot.

4.  Light Blue top is a top down pullover I was making for a knitting class I have been thinking about teaching.  I didn’t finish it because I panicked thinking the neckline would be too small.  I think I need a little person (ie. baby) to try this on for me.  Maybe when I have more time next spring I will finish this.   Oh, and you probably can’t tell, but it has a row of beads on it.  🙂

5.   Trekking Sock – pretty November colors…very orangy!

6.  Top right – Doll head and part of body.  I thought about making my girls dolls for Christmas.  I need to pick this back up.

7.  Austermann sock (the one with the Aloe in it…)

8.  Blue hat – Iceland wool.  I made this for when Sierra went to Brownie camp.  She wore it twice, maybe.  It was definitely a warm hat, though.

The snowflake hat deserves its own picture, so I will try to take a picture of it tonight.


In the bookstore!

November 9, 2007

So I went to the bookstore today (Border’s) and saw the book my pattern was in.  I wanted to buy it, but Tony told me not to since I should be getting my copy in a few weeks.  They only had one copy at the bookstore.  Besides my pattern being in there, it looks like a good book.  It is the Son of a Stitch n Bitch book.  My pattern is the Wheel on Fire steering wheel cover.   If you buy the book and make the steering wheel cover, let me know.   🙂

By the way, I thought by going to the bookstore and seeing my name in print that I would have this “famous for a day” type moment.  Then, as I looked around, I noticed that no one in the bookstore seem to notice or care, Ha Ha Ha Ha…

I “almost” walked around the store with the book, saying…”see that name…it is me…”  Ha ha ha ha ha…

Okay, I wouldn’t really do that, but I had to laugh in my head about how obnoxious that would be.

Maybe this weekend I will do a quick recap about all of the things I have been working on and finished, since I have been so lazy with my blog.
