Back again

So here I am ready to give a better update than the previous post.
I will start with my completed pumpkins.... cute litte guys eh, bet you can guess when I started these little babies..... around the Halloween swap! LOL Oh well, they have been waiting to be stuffed for ages and now they are put together and getting rave reviews!

My new pair of socks is so close to being off the needles, if I just stopped typing, I could have them done and photographed, and up her in about 15 min..... but I will block them first and then show them off. Here is an update photo however... I think the colours are working quite nicely!
Speaking of blocked socks, here are the first pair from the hand-dyed yarn..... on my homemade blockers LOL !! So cute!

I also have to get ready for the next pair of socks.... for a friend who live a ways away, they will be a suprise. I am planning on making a pair for her husband too. His will be boring black, with maybe a stripe of her yarn in it. Her sock yarn is truly a marvelous thing!
Nice huh, it's called Panda Yarn and it is a bamboo superwash mix. Dyed by the same shop owner who created my teal sock blend. She is pretty good eh? I am pretty excited to get these knit up, it's a "Christmas" gift. We don't really exchange holiday gifts, but we like to send care packages every once in a while LOL.

And last but not least, the Skull scarf for my good friend James. This IS a late Christmas present, but it is double knit, and I am improvising the pattern, so it's slower going than I would like! Any way, here is a nice shot of it.

I finally managed to get most of my Christmas gifts done. James and Tiztianna are left. The project that I am making for Titzianna is a black and red Star Scarf.... she will totally rock it, I can see it now!
Can you imagine, I started on the wrong things in September, so I never got enough ahead in my Christmas knitting! Dang! LOL Oh well, live and learn!
So gang..... there you have it. I have even posted all my UFO's in Ravelry.... so I can't get away with not finishing them...... they will haunt me every time I am in there. This last picture is of some sock yarn from the same source as the teal and the blue bamboo mix. This will be aother pair of socks for me, as soon as I am good enough to get all the little thing that are haunting me off my plate! I am so in cleanup mode! The DF and I are looking at moving, as I mentioned so I am taking the oppurtunity to pack up my things as best as I can..... at least what I am not using. LOL I will have some sewing to share with you next time I post.... the other things that I have to finish! aack! LOL Thanks for stopping by!

hey there! Thanks for visiting my boring blog. ;D I love your talent!! The skull scarf is really awesome! My son, 4 yrs old, is really into skulls and pirate stuff, he would go wild for this. Too bad, I have no clue how to knit, and also that I have wayyyy too many hobbies going on right now to try. lol
I love the socks too, I bet they are so warm and comfy!!
Hugs, Jenn
