It’s been well over a month since I’ve posted here! Pardon the dust bunnies!! However, in the midst of everything I’ve been knitting – really I have!!
Here is my proof:
The bunny is stuffed and just needs a face. I’d skip it, but faceless dolls really bother a couple of my kids. So, I have the thread and just need to do it!
I also started on for my little friend, Miss E. My goal is to have both of them done by Easter.
Thursday night – during Lost – I started this skirt for JGirl. I think it took me about 5 hours all together. I still need to make a crochet chain from the accent yarn to use a tie. Details can be found on my Ravelry page (Knitnmom).
I also have the yarn to make a Jayne hat for my brother’s graduation gift! 🙂
Due to JGirl’s upcoming arrival I’ve put Secret of the Stole ii into hibernation. And, I have some simple socks I’m working on – should be a nice purse project!
If you can visit me in Ravelry – you need to do that – because I’ve finally taken photos of all of my stash! Well, the stash I’m going to admit to, anyway! I have tons more cotton and older project yarn…but I’m not going to worry about them right now! I’m Knitnmom on Ravelry if you haven’t added me as a friend yet!
In addition to buying new yarn, I’ve been knitting! I’ve just been bad about taking pictures! 🙂 So, hold onto your socks….here’s a firehose of projects! (Click on picture to make them bigger)
Works in Progress….
Life has been very much “yes, wait, no, wait, maybe, wait, wait, wait, wait” which has been making me, well, crazy. When I got through the first mind-numbing weeks, I started knitting again. 🙂
And, I finished my Big Shrug (sorry non-ravelers for linking where you can’t go – soon I hope!) I’m just finishing some socks for J1. And, I’m determined to finish my boxers! So, I’ll restart them as soon as I get J1’s socks ready.
I hope to take pictures tomorrow of my Big Shrug, socks in progress, and boxers back on the needles. Let’s hope I get some sun tomorrow so I can! 🙂
Happy Knitting all!
So, here’s an update in the photography department!
First, here is my September Socks…starting to turn the heel! I work two at a time…but I’m a chicken…when I start the heel flaps I move to two needles and work them independently…only moving both back to one needle when the heels are completely done!
That is what my knitting is to me right now. Just a big sigh. Can I whine? Why thank you! 😉
- The Mystery Stole #3 aka my “What am I thinking?!” Stole. It’s hard! I have to really concentrate – which is not always possible with 3 boys and hubby around. I can’t knit on it with anyone around because I might mess up if I don’t totally concentrate. However, I’m enjoying it. It’s definitely a challenge. And, even though I am still working on Clue #1 and others are working on (and might even be done with) Clue #4, I’m still enjoying it. I just wish I had more time to work on it.
- My boxers – ok – I understand. The only other person knitting this pattern at Ravelry put it away saying “miles and miles of stockinette on size 3’s puts me to sleep……” Now, I get it. However, (me and my silver linings! LOL) it is perfect for Knit Night!
- My Big Shrug….too hot to work on it.
- Diagonal Lace Scarf…working it on straights. I H.A.T.E. straight needles!! I need to order some more circs so I can transfer this project.
I would feel better if I could finish something!! Maybe I need to do a quick dishcloth!
Finally got a few pictures!
My Boxer Shorts. This is what I knit from 1 skein of Knit Picks Shine Sport. Yummy yarn – will definitely use it again for future projects!
My sister’s scarf. Remember it was going to be socks. Definitely one of those “the yarn tells you what it wants to be” projects! Much happier with this! Hope she likes it too!

So, here are my most recent pictures of my works in progress (well, except my lace scarf – there isn’t enough to photograph yet):

J2’s Hat, started April 16th, 2007, finished April 18th, 2007
Pattern: Just Your Basic Beanie
Needles: Addi Turbos, size 7
Pattern Notes: J2 chose the colors and the pattern. Once I talked him out of red and green (too Christmasy for me). 😉
Would I knit it again? Definitely. This is the pattern I use for all the charity hats I do. And, I’ve done them for my DH and all the boys. This is J2’s replacement hat! Grr We’ll find it eventually I imagine. Finished just in time to take camping – he’s thrilled it covers all his hair and his ears. lol
Here’s some photos of what I’m working on right now…
Here is the Trekking XXL yarn I’m using for my socks – isn’t it pretty?
And, here are the toes 🙂 Ok – so it’s not much to look at – but it’s a start!
The start of my Big Shrug
And, I’m doing some beaded bracelets
