Yay! Sale!

So I bought more yarn today...... $40 later... lol 

I bought 4 skeins of Merino Wool for 3 reasons:

1) I need wool for the Santa Scarf I will be making
2) They were on sale 2 for $10
and 3) I couldn't decide between 2 colors so I had to get a 4th

I also bought a pair of needles and more row counters.

So my knitting collection is growing and as of yet I have no way of containing it........  We tried. Bree put out baskets to put our yarn in. But it can only contain so much.....

Help! I'm being overtaken by yarn! Well, at least I'll be warm....

T's Pressie

Okies. So I had an awesome for knitting T's xmas gift. Only....... Try as I might, I can't find a pattern for it anywhere. Granted I've only looked on Ravlery, but I figure if Ravelry doesn't have it I'm not likely to find it else where. Solution to this problem? I've been thinking about it and I'm pretty sure I can make a pattern for it. It seems simple enough. Though what seems simple, may not be all that easy once I start knitting it....... So we shall have to see how it turns out.

What is it you ask? Unfortunately, I can't say. T may be reading this. :-p

Started Christmas Knitting already......

Okay. So I've just recently taken up knitting. :-p As in I started........ *thinks* in Marchish? Possibly April.... Anyway, I think I'm doing pretty damn good. But This is not the point of this entry.

I have started my Christmas projects.

Project #1 - A 14 inch tall Elephant Plushie

Project #2 - A Santa Scarf

Project #3 - Arm Warmers

Project #1's pattern in from the book Easy To Make Knitted Toys. The pattern is called Big Jumbo.
I'm half way through the knitting the body and I want to stab myself in the eye with my needles. It's not that the pattern is hard. It's just a lot of knitting. Knitting Stockette stitch for 43 rows, 144 sts a row is not my idea of fun. It's very boring...... Thankfully I have a few months to finish this project. :-p

Project #2 I am making the pattern for. *squee* My first pattern all by me! I saw a picture of this scraf and thought: 'I could knit that!' So I will be making a pattern for it and posting here and on Ravelry when it's completed. I need to go to the wool Shop and get some nice yarn for it.

Project #3 I started tonight. It's a basic pattern and I'll probably be done it by Wednesday. The pattern can be found here if your interested and have a Ravelry acocunt:
