Soft warm yumminess...

And it's all for me!! I made Calorimetry today all for my self! (Gee can you tell I have been knitting lots of gifts lately?) It knit up so fast, I made it one afternoon. (didn't even start till almost 4PM and was done by 9, with 2 kids and a husband to take care of )

I absolutely love the yarn, it is so fun to work with. Super soft and shows stitch detail amazingly well. I used SWS in the color Natural Plum, with size 8 addi turbo's. I modified the pattern by only doing 5 repeats of the increases and 7 repeats of the decreases, to make it fit for me. I know there are some problems with it being to big for some people, and if I had done the 15 and 17 repeats like it said it would have fit a gorilla I think, LOL.

I love the way the stripes look, as well as the way they go into points at the corners. This will be my new last minute gift!!

Fetching, aren't they?

:) I finished fetching! I am thrilled with how they turned out! I used Swiss Wool Stripes in Natural denim on size 6 dpns. The only used one skein which was amazing, I am so thrilled I can add these to my "one skein" projects. Especially becuase they are so stinking cute. They took about 2 days, again which is amazing because with two small children I don't have tons of knitting time. I will definitely make these again, but I think the next pair just might be for me. :)

My first sock, done!!

Woohoo!! I finished it last night. I am in love, it is so comfy, like a slipper, LOL. Lorna's laces rock.

Next on the needles is a pair of "purple socks" for my dear little daughter.

And look at the picture I got of them today! I was shocked that I got them both smiling at the same time! Especially since he has only been smiling for about 3 weeks, LOL!

I love Knitting

Knitting is just great. Currently I am working on my first pair of socks. I can't wait to finish them and walk around in them. My mom wants to take them from me, but I don't know if I will let her have them, LOL. I am currently turning this:

Just keep crocheting and knitting.....

Something about this pregnancy has made me crochet and knit like a fiend. In the past month I have either knitted or crocheted:

4 baby blankets
1 full size afghan
5 small purses
4 big purses
3 Ipod cozies
a set of coasters
2 hot pads
A doily

And am currently knitting yet another bag. Then after that I plan on making a bag for Crystal to take trick or treating. Ummmm yeah. At least my nervous energy is going to good use!!
