Happy Holidays

I hope you all had a Merry Christmas! I did, and I love spending time with my family. I got 8 books (secret shame: twilight) and knit my sister this scarf she asked for. I did finish some other projects. This is the Mid-December Dishcloth KAL. This was the first time I have knit something like this, beginning in the center. I don't think I can bring myself to use this one.

Here are my "It Fall Charlie Brown" socks - completed.

I am plugging away on my Undercover Banket. Almost finished with another square -- 2 more do then and then it's time to block.

Joansie posted her UFOs and so I thought I would as well:

Undercover Club -- remember the monthly shipment of yarn to make 12x12 squares into large blanket? 8 down and 2 to go -- why can't I just finish the darn thing?

Deep Sweater. Back is all done, just 2 small front panels and the short sleeves . Sheeeesh.......

Primavera socks - zzzzzzzzz

Soctoberfest socks -- snoozin'

Sprial socks -- in deep hibernation mode

Valentine Socks -- fast asleep

Rings of fire -- extingused for now

Holiday Carusos -- next to finish after the next UFO listed

Charlie Brown Fall Socks -- almost done!

Gloria Cowl -- yikes!

Gust -- may frog and sell kit

I better log off a knit something......

Don't Worry.....

I am still buying yarn! Here is some yumminess from The Skein Queen in the UK. Her yarn is one of my favs and can be hard to get your hands on!

Here is my Seven Deadly Spins Greed shipment. Not really my thing, so I would be willing to part with the yarn, patttern for the clutch, beads, lining and clasps for $25. More details here.

I joined the Color-Co-op, but had to cancel even though the yarn is gorgeous.

I have really shed a lot of club subscriptions: The Plucky Knitter, TV Sock Yarn Club, Yarn Pirate, Color-Co-op, The Stash Menagerie, Sock Yarnista....I still have Magnolia Society and one more shipment of the Cinema Yarn Club. And speaking is the latest from the sKnitches Cinema Club -- Cast-Away.
I love all the packaging and goodies!

Amazing Autumn Coffee Swap

Thanks Gaylen -- I love everything. She said she had a hard time buying for me as I don't blog enough, but I think she did a great job!
A HUGE mug, COFFEE, biscotti, needles (love Hiya, Hiya) a mystery book of which I have not read and some Red Heart Sock yarn for kids socks.

Check out the hand-knit item! It is so soft and squishy and fits right in with my pumpkin collection.
This was my favorite item -- all my colors! Thanks so much Gaylen!
