I just wanted to thank every one for their lovely and ego filling comments on my star scarf! I encourage everyone to try it! I used two balls of Bernat Satin. One for each side.

I am finishing the final bit of sleeve on my top-down and I will model for pics soon!
Hope you are having a great week!
(I also hope that I can post more pictures of the Halloween swap packet that I sent out. She has to get it first! Yikes! I really liked that packet, it was some good work, if I do say so myself!)

Too long to wait!

So it has been a little while since my last post. Sorry not to have kept up.
I feel poopy today, and I am a bit down cuz my DF is off on a hunting trip with two buddies. Not that I couldn't have gone, but I don't have all the certification that I need yet. Any how, he will be off in the bush so I worry a wee bit. I have the location and they have GPS, and all that stuff so everything willbe fine. What can I say, I worry.

Anyhow, he has the camera this weekend so when I have FO's I won't be able to post until Tuesday! *dang it*

So I am done the body of the top-down raglan pictured below, and I am almost done the right sleeve. Then the left side and all is done!! YAY!! I am planning on taking this weekend while the man is away to sit and relax a bit.... watch movies he doesn't want to see! LOL

I have done the handwarmers for my DF, they were for this weekend. I have to keep him warm! He has a hat, scarf, socks and now handwarmers from me! I have to get some thicker socks made however and another pair of handwarmers too..... don't want him to have issues if he looses one! LOL Backups are the best idea!

So I also finished another baby blanket and have started a third in the bubbles yarn from Bernat. Yes more for my sister's group of friends. LOL I am going to have to start charging her!
I will be starting on one or two new sweaters this weekend I hope. I have the Rogue ready and waiting.... and I really want to make the Central Park hoodie. You should see the one that Knittypants has up on her site! I love the yarn she has chosen! I have been pondering using that very yarn for a sweater or two! It is so nice to see the Briggs & Little Heritage "Anniversary Twist" used in a garment! She mentions that it is a tough yarn, but I wonder if it is a bit softer on the skin after washing and wearing a few times....... hmmmmmm.

Hope you are all having some lovely fall weather, and have a great weekend!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Well, I hope you all had a great day of turkey, family and friends! I know I did! YAY pumpkin pie! LOL

Here is the start of my newest Top-Down Raglan. I have had this in my stash for ages and I think that it is time to use it up! I was given it and instructed that I could not use thes two huge balls of colourful, oatmeal based aran weight to make an afghan....... darn. So here I am a few years later and I finally have a use for at least one ball! I am not sure if I will have to go over to the other to finish the sleeves, but I will find out in a bit! Since I already have a back-up supply I am not really worried about needing extra!

I decided to add a detail along the sleeves and along the sides under the arms...... cables!

You can see them in there along the sleeve begining. Also a close up of the yarn. I have to admit I am guilty of not knowing what yarn it is, but I can check with the extra ball for the ball band and report in later. The cable is a simple 6 stitch one. I feel like I have said this before, in a previous post so I won't ramble much about it now, but in the re-cap when it is done.

I do have an FO for you too! Another Star Scarf! YAY the double knit! Thanks again to

Crafty Chick for this fantastic pattern! I just love getting one of these done! I will have to update my Ravelry! Off to do that now!

Have a great week everyone!

Why can't I just work on my stuff at home and sell it? Dang it..............
I hate having to work for corperations. I know, you probably all feel close to the same... feel our dissapointment world!

Oh well, enough of that......

So Aimee wants to know what I'd like for Christmas/Birthday. We decided to make gifts this year as opposed to purchase. Here you go hon.

A felted cloche please. (haven't measured my head)
Mittens or hand warmers. (hands are 16cm base to fingertip 6.5cm for thumb to mid-finger)
a fun purse
blue, ribbon tied shrug from Glamour Knits
a pincushion for my wrist
socks (foot is 22cm long)
I dunno................. this is hard. There are tons of things that I want, but I don't know how logical they are. LOL

I guess that is all I can come up with at the moment. I hope that helps. I already know what I am makng for you gang! LOL ;)

Another project beginning?

So I guess now I have to get on to the next project..... I was looking through my ravelry queue and wondering what to get moving on.....
I have no clue! LOL

I do know that a few sweaters are on ther and I wonder if I should start on an new one, or if I should bang out another top-down raglan while I have the modifications in mind.

So next post should have an image or two for the swap that I am in... the packet is done and I just have to get it sent off to England. I am pretty excited to get her reaction. I like what I have created, and I want her to get it before Halloween..... I can hope that customs will smile on me.
Sorry that I have no pics today. See you later.
