Quick baby knits..

Here I sit while my pizza dough is rising scrambling to find a pattern suitable for me to knit for my little friend at school. I'm attempting to find something I can knit with this Bernat Softee Chunky yarn I have a pile of. I need quick. I need cool. I was thinking a sweater. Anyone have any ideas? The gauge is 15S/20 R. I've been all over the message boards trying to find something cute. Maybe I should just do the hat and booties deal. But I'd rather a sweater for this chicky.

Any and all suggestions welcome!

Is this a knitting blog? Well, well....

I've not been knitting anything...but I'm going to tonight after I finish reading my psyche chapters. God I hate that class....

So....Maybe I'll make my daughter those wrist warmers that I promised her. "you never make me anything, mommmmm". I have heard that recently :) Jaaaaaysus. I made her the little froggy cell phone case. Then I made her friend one (we scrapped the Green Day logo idea but we did initials on it and it came out cute enough) What does she want? Who does she think I am? Super knitter? :-) I am not.

I also have two preggo friends at school....Well, one is a friend and the other is a fellow student. I've gotta make them a little something so perhaps more of those sweet little booties I made last month.

That brings me to this......
Target has yarn? Get the F out. In the dollar bins. I'm not thrilled with it. I cast on last night trying to make a pair of those booties in the furry kinda fun fur yarn. I figured it would mimic the angora that the pattern calls for and appeared to be about the same gauge. I don't think it will be fun to knit with...its super slick, hard to pick up. Maybe its just me. They had some super cute colors like lavender and orange. Maybe it would be better with aluminum needles? I'll give it another go.

Three More Days...

NYC here I come :)

On Friday, after my second day of clinical at the hospital I will be traveling with a Bruce friend to NYC! My favorite band in the whole world is having a CD Listening Party/show for their fans. I lucked out and got a ticket and I am very excited about it! I'll be staying over. My fellow online girlfriends have offered me a place to rest my weary head after the madness and I'll catch a few hours sleep before traveling home to my normal, boring, mother/wife/nursing student running off to catch my son's first baseball game of the fall season life.

In the meantime, I *should* be studying because I have an exam tomorrow. School is back in full swing. They certainly don't let you ease back into things! I told myself I'd do more studying this year. And not let anything go to the last minute. Heh. :::whistles:: I am the worlds biggest procrastinator. Knitting is the perfect escape....and so is the damn computer.

Best Friend Dolls

I have been in love with these dolls since I saw the first one on Kirsten's blog ( I checked three local knitting shops and couldn't find Interweave Knits, Summer 2002. And then I saw some more adorable dolls on another blog. I had to order the pattern. The issue is sold out but they are still selling the pattern and it FINALLY came!! I'm going to make a bunch of these. I've always loved dolls. I gave this one to my mom who named hers Annie. I've started on my second one but can't decide on the clothes.
