My Current Projects!!!

Well, as promised, here are my current projects.....I think this is all - there may be a hidden one someplace around the house!!! I will post finished pictures when I am done!!! And hopefully that will be soon!!! :)

This is my favorite project of the moment! The Irish Hiking Scarf from Hello Yarn. It is fun, fast and very addictive!! I used yarn from my stash - Cascade Quatro. I actually have knitted quite a bit onto this in the past day or so. I am planning on making a few more for Christmas gifts!!

I started this travel pillow from the Vogue 101's Travel issue. It's made in several parts and the pattern is not easy to read, but the end result looks so cute. This was supposed to be for a secret pal project, but I am rethinking my decision and will probably end up making something else. The yarn is Cotton Classic in a vibrant pink.

This is my tea cozy from "Last Minute Knitted Gifts" by Joelle Hoverson. It is in Mission Falls 1824 wool in a pumpkin color (prettier in person). I adore this pattern and how the stitch looks like thermal fabric.....but it's still sitting here in the bottom of the basket...alone and neglected. All I have left is the bind off and sewing, which is probably why I am ignoring it! :)

This is my unfinished felted bag! I love the colors. It is made of my own pattern with Lamb's Pride Worsted Weight! There will be more of this bag soon! I am "almost" finished with the handles!!! :) Then I need to make a flap, do some duplicate stitch, make a button, and felt it....well, maybe "almost" is not quite right.......


Welcome to my new blog!! Here you will find my current projects, projects in the making and general rants about knitting......Please feel free to leave a comment! I would love to hear from my fellow knitters!

I will be posting more this afternoon, when I have uploaded all my current project pictures!!! I still have some more writing to do, links to add (If you have a good link - email me!!) and some finishing touches on the layout......but it's ready for the public!!! :)
