I'm Done!

If you read Cheryl's blog, you would get the impression I am a knitting machine. Ha! Not really, but I do have 4 finished objects to show!

Sorry for the crappy pic of my socks. I was doing my laundry today and snapped a picture before I threw them in the machine. (I wash all my socks in the machine and hang them to dry). This pattern is the Huanuma Bay pattern I found online. Size one knit picks circs two at a time magic loop. The yarn is hand dyed by Natasha. Love the color on these. So bright. These were modified only in that they are anklets.

The "Pink Peppermint Puffball" sweater. Once again sorry for the pic. You can see the water going in the washer to wash the sweater. Ok my friends said the sweater looked good. Yay! I like it, very soft and comfy. More specs on the sweater in my last post.

My favorite daughters new hat. She wanted a hat to match her winter coat and the mittens on her. (Mittens are store bought long before I learned to knit). I think the colors are pretty good considering I pulled the yarn from my stash! I made this hat using the guage info on the ball band and help from the Yarn Harlot's third book. The pattern is baby cable rib from Sensational Knitted Socks. (Love that pattern!). Size three knit picks circs magic loop method. She loves the hat and wears it! Woo Hoo! Score for mom!

Finally a poopy picture of me in my new Kittyville hat. I finished this today while I waited for my husband to do PT. I love this hat. Once again, stash yarn! Cascade 220, pattern from Stitch and Bitch, size 7 knit pics options magic loop method. After seeing this hat and the ties that hang from it, my husband came up with a very good idea for a hat that my son really wants me to knit now. It will be secret for now as I don't have yarn in the stash for this. All I'm sayin is I need some Encore in dark and light blue. Stay tuned.

So ok maybe a bit of a machine. Now I am working on knitting heart pillows from Vogue Knit One magazine. I can't wait to finish them. So awesome. I'm gonna make three.

Saturday was an awesome day. Got to go knitting with my friends at Heather's which is always a blast. Good food and great company! Plus, Heather and I made a deal and I got the most beautiful sock yarn ever. She was a member of last years Socks That Rock Club, but I was'nt. I so fell in love with the Titania's Revenge pattern and yarn. I have the yarn rolled in a cake, and I want to knit it to have the socks, but then not knit it because it is so pretty. Lucky for me I signed up for the club this year. I have been showing this yarn cake to my family driving them nuts asking "Is'nt this the most beautiful sock yarn ever?". Haha they are going to run and hide when my first club shipment arrives.

Lastly I am a winner!!!!!! Woo Hoo!!!! I won Lucy's blog contest. Go read her blog. She has the cutest doggies. I am partial to Eros. Maybe I could talk her into letting him be the prize? Well......I guess not. Ok gotta go knit some more. Later y'all!

you ARE a knitting machine! go you! the yarn knitted up gorgeous! if you need me to dye anything, let me know. i have superwash yarn in sportweight and fingering. oh, also, the food coloring that you color icing with...mccormicks...it also comes in neon colors and both those and the regular ones do an amazing job in dyeing stuff. the only other thing you will need is about a half a cup of white vinegar...
