A Baby (Gasp) Blanket.

 Just for a friend.  Blue Sky Alpaca 100% cotton held double.  I go through a skein a night watching TV, then switch over to a pair of socks.  The pattern is Wool Leaves by Jared Flood.  He does publish easy to read patterns and I am loving how this is coming along.  I predict an FO by 3/1!

WIP 2luvcrew

 This is another pattern book that I received for Christmas.  One sock done, the second is underway.  Love the intensity of this color.

Have I mentioned that I LOVE this book?

The three hats that I've finished already this month are from this book.  There are at least three other patterns in here that I am itching to cast on. 
They go so quickly, and I had two perfect skeins of Malabrigo in the stash for this one.

This yarn entered the house sometime after Christmas when I redeemed by $25 Loopy Ewe shopping credit.  I decided pale pink is one color that I have very little of in my stash. So there it is.  ShibuiKnits.

Newest WIP

This will be Afshari by Hunter Hammersen, very soon.  One can hope. This is some Lorna's Laces that has been in my stash for a very, very, VERY long time!

The Sock Mill

 The Sock Mill is still churning away.  I have to admit, this particular sock is trying my patience.  The Medium weight yarn knits up into a very firm fabric, but hurts my hands because it is so stiff.  Give me lightweight BMFA STR any day please....

This is what I got for my birthday!

A very generous gift certificate that is going to increase my stash by a large amount!  Whoo Hoo!

I'm Bored!

Says a 19 year old when forced to model a hat for 60 seconds.  Sheesh!

Pattern:  Brier Toque by Cecily Glowik MacDonald   Yarn:  I have lost the label!  Color: Purple/Black/Green/White  Needles:  US 5  Started:  January 23, 2012  Completed: January 25, 2012   Note: This wound up much longer than the pattern, but it is liked.
 Seriously, he could not stop dancing around and I finally had to quit when both dogs got involved.  Sorry.  No pictures of that craziness.

Yet Another Beret!

Pattern:  Solitaire Beret by Natalie Larson from Weekend Hats  Yarn:  Malabrigo Yarn Merino Worsted  Color:  Lettuce  Needles:  US 9 and 8  Started:  January 27, 2012  Completed: February 3, 2012  Note: Stash-busted again!  Another hat that I may struggle to give away!  However, I have a whole 'nother skein of this Malabrigo and I wonder how the Ruched Hat will look....

Coraline is moving right along.  The hem took the longest time, now I can sit down and knit a couple rows and set it aside knowing there is no time pressure on this one!  Although I would like to finish it before the end of March!

Bueller?  Bueller?
Broderick's Honda Commercial! 

Have you seen this yet?  Have you counted the references back to Ferris Bueller?

I have watched this several times now - furiously happy.

Socks FO!  (#1)

First finished pair of the New Year!

Pattern:  Snow Petals by Lisa Stichweh   Yarn:  Zitron Trekking Hand Art  Color:  505 Jamaika   Needles:  US 1 - 2.25 mm  Started:  January 1, 2011  Completed: January 19, 2012  Note: Things got really twisty with this pattern.  Oh my goodness.  I have to say that this Zitron yarn certainly distributes the color repeats in a pleasing manner.

Now I have to go dry my tears since the Wild broke my heart, again, last night.
