Here we are!!!

Told you I'd be back!!!!
First a picture of the new double knitting scarf that I started last night! I had to make one..... from Crafty Chick.....(her link is on the list of blogs)
Cool isn't it I just love it already, and I still have about twelve stars to go!
So how do you like that???? LOL I am so excited! So next up we have three progress shots! The Purple sweater! made from Eco-fil yarn, and inches away from being a worn garment!

The sleeves for "Mariah" in Patons Classic merino....... yum, woolly! I have to say that it does get easier as I have been going, now that I understand the cables it comes along faster. At the beginning however it was not so! I am hoping that I can finish at least the sleeves for this month! maybe more but I won't hold my breath! I am knitting both sleeves at once however so I will have them both done at the same time! That is the good news, you can see the second sleeve peeking in the bottom of the shot there.

My friend Cathy has been waiting so patiently for her blanket..... and it's done!!! LOL (thank goodness!) time consuming! a vibrant pink just for her!!!
So, that is the end of the pictures! No more time consuming downloading of this post! I do have a few other things that I am working on but haven't posted.... a few more of the white hats for a charity event, I am planning on starting the "Buttony" sweater that has a thread on craftster..... aka "Sweater of many buttons", and I am trying to gauge swatch for a top down raglan...... in a totally inappropriate weight of yarn! LOL I hope that I can make it work, I think that it will be great! No knitpicks package yet! That means that I cannot show you the goodies that I have ordered.
I did make a stop myself at the post office today..............to drop off the last swap packet of this month. Once kistchkween has it I will post pics of all the lovelies that I sent OUT this month!
So I hope that this meets your expectations..... I have no idea how fast I will get all these projects done! rest assured I may have a few posts light on the pics in the following week....so that the download isn't that long! LOL let me know what you think!

Hmmmm, not too cold.... I live about a half an hour from the ocean, and here in BC we have a buffer! Vancouver Island gets the worst of the weather and we get the tail ends.... lucky us, not so lucky VI!

You must have been knitting nonstop to get all that done! I would love a blanket but never get them done. Would you knit me one ;)
Love the purple sweater and the scarf and everything.
