Even though I said I was going slowly, once I got to page 600 it was no turning back. 12:32 a.m PDT Tuesday morning I finished. Made for a tired worker today.
Now it is back to knitting. Plus I need to stash dive for team colors to make a Pre-Season charity knit for Football-a-long. Trouble - not much navy there for a Bears Sweater, might have to make a Seahawks one.

a tiny FO

Remember that free doll tunic pattern that cost me $150 (because I bought the doll to wear it....) It is finally finished. I also have a sewing pattern for pants/skirt/jacket. I tried the pants pattern and messed up the waistband but good. So try #2 will be coming up soon.

p.s. still reading HP7, currently on page 514.

HP mania

I was able to see OOTP on Sunday. $5 for the matinee in my wee little town. It was cool. I enjoyed the film and look forward to re-reading that book.
I however am busy reading HP7. While other HP fans are staying up late and forsaking all to rush through this last book, I am taking my time. You see, it is the LAST one, and I um, want to make it last.....
Right now the hardest part is avoiding any *spoilers*

look, it's knitting

I swatched for Glee with Knit Picks Shine Sport in Aquamarine. I need to go down a needle size. So that is what I will be doing tonight.

The Big Pink is moving along. I have divided for the sleeves and will be setting this aside to work on Glee. I figured I should knit a short sleeved sweater for the summer in light cotton blend first. The Big Pink is recycled wool. hot hot hot on the lap. It is a mixture of 2 patterns but will be a long sleeved V-neck tunic.

As for the noise? So far so good. The boy is sticking to his promise of only playing while I am at work. ;-)

steamy in the PNW

Yep, with forecasted temps in the 90's (weather.com is calling for 99 on WED!) here in western WA what would I be knitting? Why 100% wool socks of course! These are for an IL friend. I am knitting them up at the same time because I don't know if I will have enough yarn, this way if I need to make the toes a different color at least they will be even. I don't know the colorway of the yarn. I do know it is from my secret pal, um Barefoot mountain colors? I am going to have to search my archives and hope I posted the name. Dangit, found the post on Nov 24 - but nope no colorway.
Ah well, beautiful yarn none the less.
stay cool

The Boy's WIP

The boy decided 3 guitars just isn't enough - he needed drums. Shipment #1 was received today.

Hey so far these things aren't too loud ;-)

mom's FO

Well at least someone has finished a project. Here is mom's Knitted Babe. This is Sparkle, she was made in my mom's image right down to her earrings. (she never leaves home without them!) I think she did a great job.

Check out my bling!!
