Loopy Swap.

I organized a Loopy Groupie swap.  The packages have started to come in.  I love reading the thread to see what everyone got!  Also I am tracking on the spreadsheet when things have been sent and received. 

Here is the package I sent at its new home.

I think that she liked it.  There have been so many awesome packages. Loopy Groupie Swap Thread  - click on the images link at the top to just see the packages :)

Hmmm... No Theme yet.

I was getting ready this morning and I decided on some knitwear... Shocker! So I took a quick picture of myself in the mirror... I need to learn how to get better photos out of my cell phone.

So this is my Jedi Vest from my project page.  It is a pattern from Rowan 42.  I am loving this magazine.  I got it at Kristen's Knits in town here.  Ravelry Link

I really like the pendant I am wearing.  It has become a new favorite.

Wednesday @ Work

I tend to drag along knitting to work.  Just in case I can get some free time to work on some knitting.

So I have a Ruffle Shirt that I am making for a Cousin-in-law... This pattern is very simple and cute.  A quick knit even when making the 5-7yr size.  I am using some Caron Simply Soft.

The sock on top is something I started for the Free Sock Club I started with my local knitters.  We could pick Temperance or 9 to 5 for the pattern and the yarn had to be at least 1 year old in your stash.  This works into the Loopy Ewe quarterly challenge too.  I am not sure if I like the yarn/pattern combo I picked, but I am not changing it.

Toothless is Done!

So I have been working on this animal for a long time, but he is finally done!

My kids were fighting about who got to take him to daycare.  The 3 year old little girl WON.  She held onto him tight, but as soon as we got there she put him in her cubby and announced that he was taking a nap.  All that work so he can just take a nap. *sigh*

I hope that you all like him: RavLink

Starting Over.

Okay so I would like to start blogging about knitting...  I read so many other knitting blogs and watch some podcasts and I love it so I want to try this thingy again.  I am going to try to get a following and I will try to get these to auto post to FB so that I am also a better facebook friend :)

So I finished my hubby socks today so I am going to share a fuzzy cell pic of them as of this morning.

I really enjoyed knitting these socks.  They seem to fit perfectly. I started the pattern at the smallest stitch count(72), knit them shorter as I did not have a lot of yarn and only did 6 rows of the pattern repeat instead of 8.
