Foliage Update

I finished my Foliage hat from Knitty and I like it. I will post picture later. I have started the Shawl-Collared Jacket from Baby Knits for beginners by Debbie Bliss. One of my sister's friend's mom is expecting a baby boy so I wanted to make something for them. It is awfully cute.

Foliage Pt 2

So here is an update on my Foliage hat from Knitty. So for one I think I have knitters cramp my arm/elbow hurts really bad and is rather cramped up. But thats okay my hat looks pretty cool. You can't really see the detail very well in these pictures but I think once it is done and stretched out it should be able to see.

The top of the hat.

A close up view. You can't really see anything but the yarn looks really pretty.

This is what the yarn looks like. Its really a lot prettier than this picture I can't wait until I can wear my hat!!
This is actually one of the only things I have made for myself. I am normally giving things away but I really wanted to keep this hat. I'm hoping to make a sweater soon.

So I have found a new knitting project Yay! I started Foliage from Knitty. I really love this pattern. And the yarn I'm using is a really pretty brown with red and yellow in it. It reminds me of fall. I'll post pictures later.

The new Knitty came out today. I'm excited. I love Knitty its probably my favorite knitting magazine. For one thing its free and it has really great patterns and articles. If you want to check it out here is a link.

Birthday Surprise Revealed

Okay so I finally finished the birtday surprise and gave it to my friend so now I can tell everyone what it is. Its the Rosy Cables Cozy and Scarf from Creative Knitting January 2007. I knitted just the cozy and not the scarf, it took me long enough as it was without having a huge scarf to go with it. I decided to use purple yarn because that is what I had on hand and I knew that my friend had purple in her ski jacket so it would kind of match. So here are some pictures of it.

This is when it was about half way done.

The completed project. I love the cables!!

Close up of the cables.
And the quest begins again.

I'm Done!!

I am finally done with my friends birthday present. All will be revealed after I give it to her tomorrow. I'm am so happy that I'm done. I loved knitting it but it was taking forever. I am ecstatic I never thought I would go from knitting scarfs to hats to my slippers and now this which is the hardest one I've done yet. No worries though I'm going to branch out and do more. This project was basically all cables and I've never done them before but I loved doing them they look so cool and are definitely not as hard as I thought they were going to be. Now I'm going to have post knitting blues as I don't know what I'm going to do next. I want to do the Punk Rock Backpack from SnB but I don't have the yarn yet. But I'm definitely going to get the yarn for that soon. Well thats all for now I will have pictures of the gift tomorrow probably.

So I just found out about this really cool site for knitters called Ravelry. I've been debating for a couple of days whether to put myself of the waiting list. But I went ahead and took the plunge and I am now on the waiting list. However the waiting list is like eons long and right now I am #30,810 on the list with 19446 people in front of me and 9 people are behind me. I think I have a long while to wait. But hey thats okay. I have come to realize how quickly I knit when I'm in the knitting mode. Right now I am knitting a birthday present for my friend which I can't talk about because I know she reads my blog. But trust me I will take pictures of it and talk about it when I'm done. This is by far the hardest thing I have tried to knit so far. I'm excited though and I'm having fun with it. Well anyway thats about it for now. Happy Labor Day!!

I am officially done with the Felted Furry Foot Warmers!! I got more yarn yesterday and set about to finish them last night. They actually felted a lot better than I thought they would. I'm so happy that they are done they've taken me about 9 months on and off. Here is a picture of them last night they were a still wet after coming out of the washing machine.

And here is a picture of them this morning they were dry except for the inside was a little damp. I love them I think they are hilarious looking. I want to make more soon. I have hot pink fun fur yarn that I want to use.

So now I have to figure out what to knit next. I found this hat that I was working on when I was looking through my yarn stash, however I'm almost out of this yarn and I'm going to have to get some more. The story of my life. I do love this yarn it feels so good and its a pretty pink color. You can't really tell in this picture but its this really pretty bright pink color. So the quest continues on what I'm going to knit next.
