Here is one finished mitt :)

Tuesday, November 21, 2006


Well, it seems that I have fans out there that actually read this very uninteresting blog!! Thanks so much for making my day :)

Here is an update:

I received my very dark green felted purse from Becky. It is very nice, also received some light green cotton yarn, smelly soap, address book and tape measure (I must have mentioned my favorite color is GREEN)

Finished the first mitt, still have to make the mate and finish the thumb. I think I will do that tomorrow.

And finally, progress is being made on the "It felt random tote". Only 68 more rows to go. The colors are: purple, green (go figure), red and pink. Once felted I think they will fade/mellow out.

I have given up on washcloths for Teachers, they will receive felted box with Caribou Coffee gift card and Yankee Candles.

Still waiting on socks and sweater. Hopefully over Christmas break.

Well, it seems I have too many things going on at once:

MDK Ballband dishcloth
It Felt Random Tote
Medium Felted Box
Mitts!!!! - yes, I finally got the hang of it, switched to bamboo needles and I'm doing much better. I'm done for the week, class isn't until Saturday, and I don't know how to proceed :)

Only one project completed, Blue Medium felted box.

Received partner for the Whoduknit Holiday Swap, just waiting on her reply as to which books she likes...

Oh, I did finish "The Hound of the Baskervilles", it was very good...but there is NO WAY I can start another project to coincide with the book, one of the above projects is going to have to do.

Next month's book is "A Christmas Guest" by Anne Perry, I have it on hold at the library.
Also sitting on the table; "Knit one Kill two" (or something close to that).

I hate Mitts

I have frogged them 3 times.
I have a stiff neck from leaning over trying to figure out how to knit with 3 (4) needles.
This is not fun.

On a better note, I am enjoying "The Hound of the Baskervilles".

Things to be done ie. KNIT

Well, busy all week, and not a thing to show for it, well, not really:

1-Delivered replacement purse for Deanna (done with purses)

2-Made (1) felted box for Teacher gift

3-Started on "It Felt Random"; you really should check it out, the directions are so funny. I'm hoping to use this as my "Library book bag"

4-Signed up for mitten-making class

5-Have yarn on hand for 2nd felted box for Teacher gift.

6-Started reading "The Hound of the Baskervilles" for November Whodunkit, I'm not even going to try and knit a project associated with the book, I have enough projects going...I've never read the book, so that is an accomplishment in itself; and since I started knitting feverishly this past June, I have not read a book (or done any scrapbooking).

7-Socks are still at the bottom of the list :)

Still waiting on:
partner for Whoduknit book/gift swap
partner for the MDK Winterwonderland swap
purse from Knitted purse swap

Knitting is addicting

Ok, what did I learn this weekend?? Knitters are enablers, if that makes any sense.

I found an entire world that I did not know existed out there. I have been reading other knitting blogs and found that they are swaps for just about anything!!!! I found out about a MDK dishcloth exchange and signed up this morning. This is in addition to the Whoduknit swap I signed up for last week. I think it is fun meeting all these new people.

Signed up for a mitten class at my LYS, going to go with my mom. Should be fun. That crosses one thing off my list: Learn how to make mittens.
That just leaves SOCKS.

I did it AGAIN

No, not the felting issue (though the replacement purse is currently in the wash and it's not shrinking UUGGGHHH).

Anyway. I went to a craft show yesterday, customer not vendor, and a friend said she like my purse. I offered it to her, she didn't respond. Her friend said she liked it too, I offered it to her and she took it. I was then left, holding the bag; a red paper bag. Now, I just need to find a home for the brown crooked purse.

My purse swap is ending this week, so I should have my purse from my partner, that is why I'm not rushing to make another one for myself.

Missed the sign up on a fun swap - Knit Mit. But I am in the other ones on Whoduknit.

Going to finish up those ball bands this week so I can move on.

Not much knitting

Not doing much knitting this week. I did receive my Yarnies order today, so I can start on the replacement purse for Deanna.

I started on teacher gifts, but I could not get that into the Ballband washcloths..the first one is just sitting there.

I did join another group, Whoduknit, you read a mystery and knit something pertaining to the book...don't know how that is going to work, but I'll try. This month's book is Hound of the Baskervilles. I also signed up to be in two or maybe it's three swaps in that group.

Halloween has come and gone...time to get ready for Turkey day :)

This would be son #1; costumes are just not so cute as they get older.
