A monumental occasion in knitting

IT IS DONE!!!!!!!!

The Linen Kilt from Knit 2 Together is done!

Happy Dance - (as Nat puts it) - is what I was doing.
I need to block it and hem the waist (or seam) but it is done!!!!!

And the Last Minute Purled Beret from Knit n Tonic is done as well!
Here it sits on a plate blocking.

This was yarn I got at a cute little Michigan Knitting store (in Jackson - GASP).
It was in the clearance basket.

So look who adores the hat!!!!!!!

Let me remind you - she JUST turned 10 years old.
(eventhough this picture lends itself to her looking older)

I am afraid Rowan has lost this Nat to her sister!

Two projects in one week - I may faint!!!!!!

(big grin!)

Now onto those WIP.......

Nothing but Honest

Sorry for the absence...... I have been busy at work, at home, with school things and knitting. Okay - and I have been obsessed with getting my ravelry page set up.

What I have found (and I haven't gotten all my projects, WIP, FO, Wanna be projects on the page) is that Ravelry forces me to be honest about all my CAST ONS (WIP) and realize that I need to NOT buy anymore yarn, books (except for Cat Bordhi's new book - cause I have been wanting it for the longest time) or knitting projects till I at least finish some of the projects I have at hand. When you post a project and then post the "start date" and it happens to be 2006 and you realize that it's "hibernating" you are a bit humbled and realize what a two timing knitter you are. Just like (some) men (and women I suppose) - as soon as some new, fresh, pretty yarn and new, fresh, funky pattern comes across my sights - I am on it!

I hope to have them all up by the end of the week - but alas - life occurs - and get going on my projects (WIP).

With that said - I have put limits on my stash additions. Since starting my fitness/weight loss/nutrition makeover I have vowed to not buy yarn till I hit certain milestones (first 5K - sock yarn, first 5K under 30 minutes sock yarn, ten pounds a sock pattern from loopy ewe.....).

Perhaps I should put my projects on some bonus point system - every three WIP I finish I can buy and maybe cast on a new project?????

Oiy - such a dilemia - so much yarn, so many needles, so many patterns, so little time.

Race for the Pennant

I am patting myself on the back today as I have mastered a new knitting technique.

I am now knitting two socks on two circs! It took five frogs and many counts to ten - but I am up and going.

So what am I doing tonight while I am knitting my two socks (on circs)????





to watch the

race for the pennant!
