One down...

Well, that was quick! I started it last night and finished this morning. Cooper is very happy with it and is anxious for the second one, even though he isn't going to wear the things til the fall. Now I'm on the search for some different, funky versions!

Knitting funk...

I'm in a knitting funk, I think. Sorta kinda. I think I want to make a bag of some sort, a big felted kind of bag. Maybe a backpack. Dunno what kind or what colors. I'm still working on the never ending chevron scarf. Uuuugh. Its taking soooo long. The pattern calls for 4 skens of Koigu but I only had gotten 2. I think it will be plenty long enough.

I just casted on for some wrist warmers. Army green, wool, for my son Cooper by request! Its pretty cool when they kids request something. Daughter asked for a pair, too, so apparently these are a hit. I had made some for my brother in law last Christmas and they were a big hit with his sons (my nephews, of course). I'm planning on making both boys a pair this winter. I had used the men's pattern in the Last Minute Knitted Gifts and I may use the same unless I find a different pattern.

I'd like to make a pair for myself but I'd require something a bit more funky so I'm on a hunt for a cool pattern :)

A Green Gnome...

I was blog surfing tonight and found this cute pattern. http://www.seasonsoriginals.biz/knit-baby-gnome.html I felt like taking a break from the never ending koigu scarf and whipped it up. Mine isn't as cute as the original! I will probably make another. Its fast!

Autumn colors....

Working on this scarf from Last Minute Knitted Gifts. Its super simple but taking a while. I don't really make scarves because I'm a knitting snob, perhaps. I had scored this Koigu handpainted yarn up at Patternworks for 5.00 a skein. At that price I shoulda scoffed up the whole load of them but picked up 2 thinking I'd make a pair of socks for my son. Heh. Yeah. Well, I got outside and saw that indeed this yarn has some coral, pink and other fun girly colors. Since I'm a redhead, I figured it would be a good color for me!Image hosted by Photobucket.comImage hosted by Photobucket.com

Poster Boy...

This was more difficult than I thought it would be. It's going to be a bag when I'm finished. This is the front.
