Where's yours?!! LOL!
Ok. So, if you've been here you know that i've been sucked into Ravelry. It is fantastic! Once it goes public, i'll put up a link so that anyone who wants to can check it out!
Two other knitting notes:
1). The New Knitty is up. With Summer patterns.
2). Knit Picks has some of their yarns on super sale to clear out for Fall. Of course i have no spare yarn money right at the moment but if you're early Christmas shopping for me, i'd love to have some of this in "Campfire" or any of the sale colors here or here. ;)
I finally finished a pair of Horcrux socks for my SP. I'd like to pick up at least one local postcard or magnet or something and then i should be all set to send it off. Hope my SP likes the socks.
All of the other knitting that i've been doing is a whack of baby items. A few people have made comment to this. NO! We are not expecting. Sheesh! Bunch'a wise guys!
Any guesses what this will be?!
Yep. You guessed it. I'm aiming for seven, one for each day of the week!
As you can see, some of them still need some finishing, ends woven in and buttons added. I also need to finish the 7 sleeve rows on the Baby Einstein Coat and then i'm making a cute little hat to go with it.
All of the baby items that i'm making right now are being made at the request of a Dear Friend of ours. Wendy (sadly, blogless) asked me if i would be willing to knit something to be donated to a Le Leche League event that she will be going to in July. So, of course i will be spending the rest of June, trying to see how much i can knit up for her. Everything will need to be ready to ship out around the 1st of July so that Wendy can see what's there and decide what she wants to take. I asked her that if there was something that was "not worthy" of going to the auction, if she would donate it to the "Mitten Tree" at the First UU of Hobart, where Deb and i used to go to Church. See, there is a very good explanation for the baby items!
Ok. One last thing. I won a prize from a blog contest that another Becky held a bit ago. The contest was to help her find a new and possibly better name for her blog. Someone else came up with a fantastic name! Becky was very generous and offered several prizes, the winners got to choose in order and i chose this:
Oh look! Baby yarn! WooHoo!! Thanks Becky!
Ok. I'm off to go knit for a while. I may even cast on something new...and babyish, of course! ;)
