Hubbie Scarf

I finished brooklyntweed's Noro Scarf I was making for my husband.

Made with the Noro Silk Garden I got for Christmas from my first born.

The colorway of this yarn is amazing!

I find the yarn to be a little hard on my hands but when knitted up the fabric is soft to the skin.

Now I can throw out that old scarf he has been using. Happy Day!!!

First born and her husband close on their first house Wenesday!
It seems like yesterday I brought her home from the hospital. Life goes way too fast.

More Gloves

These were made with Ragia sock yarn the Kaffe Fassett Line. I just couldn't get the them to match so I gave up and just enjoyed knitting.

They're for my youngest and I think the colors work great for her because she is an art teacher.

I'm proud of the space between the fingers. There are no holes and they look pretty good,if I do say so myself.
She gave me Two Thumbs Up!!!!

I just got my Vogue Knitting! So many beautiful thing but because I'm on a glove kick....

These will go on the needles today! Yes that is Jader Flood Brooklyntweed.

I'm not sure what yarn I will use from my stash. I have to chech gauge but I have some nice Cascade 220 Tweed left over from my daughters sweater or some beautiful Rowan Felted Tweed I got from Santa.

Good Time to Remortgage!

I was just sitting knitting with The Chalk Dust Knitters and Jackie takes out her new set of addiclicks. She texted Patricia's Yarns and had her put aside her last set for me.

The next day a little snow wasn't going to stop me!
So we stopped off at the bank to remortgage the house,and we were off.


They come in a beautiful box.

When you open the box it looks like Jewelry!
The set comes with 10 pairs of addi Turbo needle tips sizes US 4-15, 3 blue cords, 1 connector, and a pretty little heart pin!

The tips are easy to put on and take off. The join is very smooth and I can't wait to use them!

Patricia had these Blue Sky Five Inch Double Points.

They're made of beautiful dark rosewood and perfect for making fingers on gloves. I'm working on my second pair of gloves and just about ready to start the fingers.

I'm a happy camper!

Knitting, Eating,Friends,and Wii

My Columbia Beret is done. This is a free pattern by Sarah Pope and can be found on Ravelry.
I made it out of Knit Picks Swish yarn on US #7 16" circular needles and then size 5 dpn's. It is an easy, fast knit but I messed up one of the rounds. I will have another on the needles soon.

The model is My first born Grimm Witch of Jersey.

I added the berry button.

So I hear the first step is admitting you have a problem.
I am a wii addict!
I missed many hours of knitting because of this Animal Crossing game!
My little friend is Lupie and she lives in Knitting Town.
I know it's sad but I can't help it!

To make matters worst I got the Simms Castaways. I hope going back to work Monday will help.

What is a post without pictures of food.
The Chalk Dust Knitters met at Pat's house and first we ate lunch.

Then we had dessert! The Apple crumb and the cookies were homemade and awesome!

We did get to knit/crochet. Pat is working on another sweater for her granddaughter and check out Annette's beautiful scarf!

My first born is working on yet another BSJ.

My last born Pepper is making a beautiful basketweave scarf. You can see Crochet with me with the gift I gave the group. More pictures to come when the rest of the group gets their gifts.

When members are missing the meetings just aren't the same. Jackie,Maria,and Steph were greatly missed. The next meeting is Friday so there will be another post of lots of food and gift giving.
