    Knitting Frenzy
    Ya'll, Manda got to me.

    I have needles. I have a stash. I've got 3 projects on needles right now. And really I can't wait for Monday since its all by myself day and I can just knit knit knit.

    "Three you say? Do tell what are you working on?"
    Well if you insist.

    1.) A super cute heart pillow for Gabby that is 50% done. This pattern has taught me how to knit front back front.

    2.) Alex's Metro Sexual Scarf. I'm learning YO (yarn over) and K2Tog (knit 2 together)

    3.) I'm super proud of this one since I'm doing it on my own and had to decipher the pattern on my own. It's called the Roxane Scarf and I found the pattern at Knitters Anonymous. The cool part is that the pattern is from 1912 so the verbiage is different. I'm not following the pattern exactly, I'm only making 1/2 as wide as it calls for. But it is being knitted in a dark bright purple (I know but I don't know how else to describe it.) acrylic yarn of a worsted weight on size 8 bamboo needles. And I think I will get black ribbon. Once I see how this half sized one looks I'm going to invest in thicker softer yarn and make the scarf full sized for myself maybe in a creamy color. Oh yeah what I've learned from this pattern. Frogging sucks but sometimes it's for the best. Slip stitch, pulling one stitch over others.

    I'm going to have to get pictures taken of the projects (hint hint Manda) and get them up here.

    And I'm so super excited. I just got a patterned e-mailed to me. I'm going to be knitting a Bolero type shrug thing from 1958. Here go look, its Free Pattern #3 second one down on the left. I'm thinking of getting the 1st one (the shirt) or the 6th one (the Snood). I can't wait to knit this bolero up! Did you know there were so many cute knitting patterns from like the 30's-60's? Me either. I'm gonna go broke buying them too, I can just tell. (don't' worry for now I'm after the free ones)

    Someone tell me how it is that people can charge $40 for yarn and how some people can spend that or more on one skein with out blinking? Special when most patterns call for many skiens.

      Hey, have Manda take a picture of the pillow to post. I was telling my mom about it and she wants to see it.
